OFFICIAL Card - Netherlands

Two cards from the Netherlands from people named Jacqueline, two days in a row - what are the odds! This card is a sweet illustration of the letter "W", my son's initial. I couldn't quite make out the signature and did a "Google Image" search. Coolest thing ever! Look what I found!

OFFICIAL Card - Netherlands

Once again a great card showing the Dutch Royals arrived in my mail box. This is one of the first photos I've seen where the Princesses are not dressed alike. Jacqueline writes that she really likes this family - I would agree they are such a nice looking bunch!

OFFICIAL Card - Norway

Hanna and Tomek are originally from Poland and are now living in Oslo, Norway. They sent this card to me during the Sochi Olympics. The action shot is from the Men's Gold Medal Game at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. They wrote this was the most exciting final games in hockey history. I'll be 100% honest, I could have watched the game but unless it was last week I wouldn't remember! Great card and honestly great condition given the game was 20 years ago.

Random Act of Smiliness - Eileen from England

Eileen sent me the most wonderful package of cards one day out of the blue. She was sorting through her cards, had a few extras and knew they were a theme - alphabets/typography - that interested me. It is a wonderful assortment and most are new for me. Thank you again Eileen, you are too good to me!
