Cards from Canada

This week I have three more beautiful cards to share with you. They are sent from Canada by Karli. And they arrived Friday, May 11th. 
Oh boy, what a fabulous envelope it is and all these goodies inside. Fantastic! Seems that it has a rough journey but at least it arrived safely. I don't mind some wrinkles on the cards. It only shows how far it has travelled. 
Karli sent this amazing card with painting of Titanic. It looks like photo. I love paintings which look realistic. I'm stunned by skills of artists. This card is even more superb 'cause it shows ship and ocean and on the envelope is matching stamp. So awesome! Love it!

With every card from Saskatchewan, Canada, I'm sure I want to visit it one day and see all this beauty with my own eyes. Isn't it gorgeous place. I love this tranquil water and reflection of the trees on it. Seems that any moment now the fish will jump off the water and catch the fly :)

And one more serene view. So magical! I love the colors and this lovely tree silhouette. Wait a few seconds and couple in love will row with their boat on the lake :) Stunning view!

Karli kept surprising me. She is so sweet :o) Beside the marvelous stamps on envelope she added some extra stamps for me :o) On the stamp is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It's from the third edition of the Diamond Jubilee package. So majestic and blue :o) Gorgeous stamp!

 It's always confused me then people in movies tell: "give me a nickel", "It's a dime". What does it mean? Thanks to Karli, this mystery is solved :o) She sent Canada cents and also explanations on side. 25 cents is 'quarter', 10 cents is 'dime', 5 cents is 'nickel' and 1 cent is penny. 
Unfortunately I couldn't make a very good picture of these coins. They are so shiny. Like they are polished :o) These coins are with so beautiful design. I love that they all are different and shows something Canadian.

 Thank you so so much, Karli. You keep surprising me every time :o) Do you have any idea how happy I am to know you. You are Super!!! I love all your card so much and stamps and these lovely stickers and absolutely everything! Thank you!

Surprise from Canada

I got eight cards in this week from four different people and free of them was from Canada. I didn't expect any of them. Aren't Canadians nicest people in the world or what?! 
Both cards was sent separately but they arrived together on Friday, May 11th. Deanna from Canada sent them. If you watch stamps closer you can see that our main post office in Tallinn has put postal marks on stamps also. So strange :o)

The moose is one of the Canada's most massive mammals. A cow moose, such as this mother with her young, may weigh 360 kg (800Ibs).

I love both cards so much and stamps as well. I like big animals and these baby moose are adorable. And both cards shows water, which I love ooh so much :o) It would be so cool to go white water rafting but I think I'd be scared too much... 
Thank you, Deanna, so so much for awesome surprise. You made me so happy :o)

Surprise from Canada

On Tuesday, May 8th, I got awesome envelope from Canada. Jaime surprised me with something so fabulous! I'm born in year of the rat but 4 years ago I had no idea what PostCrossing is and I also didn't think much of the stamps. So after joining with PostCrossing I've secretly hoped to get a stamp with Year of the Rat. I've never seen any, not even Estonian stamp :( You cn imagine my joy then I saw it in my mailbox. I was so happy :o) I actually stood there and just watched it and wondered: "Is it really for me? Yes, there is my name on it... Should I opened it?" Yes, I thought few minutes before I dared to open it :o) The envelope it self was so awesome that I didn't even care is it something inside or not :o) I did opened it finally and I was even more stunned. Inside was two cards from my wall of favorites. It was so amazingly superb surprise. Thank you so so much, Jaime, for such a fabulous RAS. You made me so so happy. I love this stamp and cards. I would like the stamp even if it was alone but because it is on full sheet it makes it even more fantastic. You are so kind, Jaime. Thank you from bottom of my heart!

On Monday, May 7th, arrived this wonderful black & white card from Russia. Dina sent it to me. I did some googling 'cause I thought that this ship can't be from Russian. I found out that it is actually in Scotland and this mighty bridge is called the Forth Rail Bridge. That is really awesome card. I like the mystery of it. And ofcourse the ship and the bridge too :o) Thank you so much, Dina, for fantastic card.
