Happy Mail and a tag

On Saturday my mail from Donna came after a very loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong journey from Mexico to Germany, it might have been quicker on foot! You can see the green customs sticker on the right side, so I suppose my letter had a long rest on somebody's desk before making the last lap of the journey! But I  got it in the end! Donna made a gorgeous envelope, as always, with a whole battery  of Ronald Reagan stamps. The envie is going into my collection of collectables, too!


The back:


And this lovely little collage, which is now in my arty kitchen:


This is a bit problematic, as I only have vodka - wonder if that works too?

A beautiful collaged postcard:


And one of Donna's great photos:


And if that wasn't enough, she sent me loads of images and  die cuts etc., which made my crafty heart very happy. Thanks a lot Donna!

I made several tags at the weekend, but one is for Tag Tuesday, and 2 are on their way to California, so I can't show them yet. But I can show you my Autumn rain man. The BG paper is from 7 Gypsies, the TH die-cut has been cut from some hand painted paper, and the small image is from Gecko Galz.



I am linking this tag to the Fall into Fall challenge at Frilly and Funkie

Thanks for looking, have a good day, and take care!

  15. I do believe that gift from donna was meant for me I mean it is alcohol related after all but am sure that Vodka will work just as well. How thoughtful of Donna to send you these lovely gifts.

  19. Your rain man tag is wonderful - I love that you gave him fall colors and made it Halloween-y with the addition of the raven - too cool. So happy to have you joining in the fun with us this time around at Frilly and Funkie!
