Fabulous variety of cards! Hoping mine arrives soon, the mail’s still a bit random, isn’t it?!

The mail is amazingly random Joanne. I think with USA international mail it depends on the plane vs boat lottery. If you are lucky your airmail catches a plane and arrives in Europe in two to three weeks. If you are unlucky it hops on a boat and can take 2 to 3 months. It has been very interesting to see the ups and downs of the global mail system the last year or so. Well, you gotta keep yourself entertained with something in these interesting times......... Hugz
