I got mail art (from Sue Emmerson)

(front)
The little Mail Art group I'm in has started the second round of mailings, and this time the theme is 
'Birds, Bees and Butterflies.'  
First to post was group leader, 
Sue Emmerson from Australia.
Her stitched envelope is SO pretty, with its rich profusion of pretty images and rubber stamping.

(back)
 I really liked the little rhymes on the back of the envelope.


And inside the envelope Sue had so kindly enclosed a beautiful handmade Nature Journal, which is gorgeously lush with ribbons and lace and lovely lovely pages.

Sue has put so much thought and work into 
this beautiful artwork.

Thank you, Sue!

Wow this is just gorgeous Jo - and the neat thing is when it comes from somewhere far away you get such a variety of images. Sue did a wonderful job on her envelop!

What a thrill it must be to receive such a precious bundle!

(Thank you, Joanna, for thinking about us last night. We are not out of it yet - more to come later this afternoon/nigh. Oh, my friend, I am too old to be this scared - but I am!)

I send you a big hug!
