A note of thanks...

There's a lot going on in this TurtleWorld these days, and blogging has had to take a bit of a backseat for a little while. Carrie and I will be traveling to California this weekend to visit my mom so I'm busy getting ready for a road trip. What a very pleasant surprise in the midst of my scurrying to receive a lovely "Royal Mail" package from my sweet friend Jacky.

I love Jacky's blog where she posts photos of her handiwork, including the beautiful cards she creates. As a fellow artist, I really appreciate her attention to detail, as well as the lovely sentiment she wrote inside. And as if that wasn't over-the-top nice of her, she also sent along one of her sweetly stuffed felt hearts.

I am so touched by your kind gesture, Jacky!
Thank you! It was just what I needed this week!!!

Obviously I rarely check your mail anymore, but I had the pleasure of pulling this out of the mailbox yesterday. As soon as I saw the "royal mail" sticker, I knew you would be happy! :)

Thanks for making us both smile, Jacky!

I thought I recognised that card as one of Jackie's, the ones she shows on her blog are works of art.
I hope your trip to California goes well, and am pleased that Carrie is able to go with you.
Take care xxx
