Another Great Mail Day!

I had to share some fun mail I received from the Netherlands recently! 

Back on June 10, Caatje of Caatje's Artsy Stuff held a giveaway of one her "Sad Girls" canvases.  Sadly, on June 17, I discovered that I  had not won the random drawing.  However, Caatje offered to do an ATC trade for one of her smiling girls! 

First, I'll show what I sent along to Caatje.  I made her a summer smoothie ATC:
And this card accompanied the ATC:
And just in case she felt a little sick to her stomach from all of this pink, I sent a black-and-white Zentangle ATC (but forgot to take a picture).  Happily, she assured me by email that she does, in fact, like the color pink!

Then yesterday, I received all of this creative goodness in the mail:
Caatje had made an envelope from a calendar page, and included a little notecard.  And here is her smiling girl ATC:
As a bonus, she included these two very fun postcard-size (4x6) prints:
Many thanks to Caatje!  Her blog, Caatje's Artsy Stuff, continues to entertain, inform, and inspire me. 

If you would like to read more about how Caatje has inspired me, please check out this blog link to Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery.

Happy Thursday!

I'm so glad my envelope arrived safely and even more that you liked the contents. Loved yours too, but you already know that ;-)
