Card from Marianne for Caroline
This wonderful little card sailed in yesterday! Marianne has folded a map of SE Asia with Malaysia on the front side (in flight magazine, by any chance?!!), making its way across the sea to China under a big sparkly sun! What an original idea Marianne - I love it and am so happy it arrived intact! By the way, it's much brighter in real life than the pic shows - Marianne always uses such beautiful colours! I tried scanning but that flattened the boat, so I took a photo so you could see the form better and despite adjusting the levels, it's not doing it justice!! On the reverse there is some text in Dutch which reads " Met je verstand kun je ver komen. Met je verbeelding overal" which in translation I think means something like this: "With knowledge you can come a long way, with imagination you can get everywhere"! I certainly agree with this - Thank you Marianne!
P.S. Thanks for the kind messages re my upcoming operation!
