woyww - ATC from Finland

Wednesday has not turned out as I had planned...... lunch abandoned (sorry RosA!) and car now at the mechanic.  So I walked home and started a painting and then I collected the mail.  A wonderful ATC from Riikka Kovasin from Finland arrived and my day got a lot better.  Thank you Riikka I am thrilled.
I had to take a photo so you can see all the lovely mixed media details on the ATC and the fab stamp.

Finally a pic of the huge butterfly or possibly a moth that landed on the back screen as I was coming inside.  Finger in the photo so that you can gauge how huge.... nothing to do with my bad photography.

Enjoy your Wednesday and hopefully this week I will get around to visit.


  1. Happy WOYWW

  10. Car problems are not good and can be costly, I do hope things improve for you soon without too much expense. That moth is huge and beautiful, glad you got some happy mail too.

    Happy WOYWW

  11. Shame about the car problem but I bet that ATC cheered you up a bit and that gorgeous butterfly. Don't get them so big over here but I did see three of them 'dancing' together in my garden yesterday, a sure sign of Spring.

  12. Glad you had some good news to cheer your day... love the huge butterfly, too.. Helen 16

  13. Sorry about the car but must say the ATC is gorgeous so am not surprised that cheered you up and that butterfly is stunning.

  14. I would say great photography actually - captured the mothy/fly thing in fab detail! So sorry about the car and the lunch date that went with it - never mind..gives me less to be jealous about! Love the ATC, and waht great cheering timing!

  15. So sorry your car is not feeling well. At least you received that wonderful ATC to brighten your day and Mother Nature sent a reminder that life is good as well. I'd say all in all, it was a good day!

  16. Hope your car is well again soon! I'm flexible, we can do lunch whenever it suits :) I just stayed at work a bit longer and got more paperwork dealt with ... such fun :)
    The butterfly/moth is amazing! Don't think I've ever seen one like that? You can probably google "common suburban butterflies" or something to identify it. Yes, I would have been slightly cheered up by the ATC in the mail ... very nice :)

  17. Jiminy! That moth is FAB. I love the ATC and have been thinking of them a lot (what with the WOYWW anniversary approaching all too quickly) so lovely to see one that inspires...

    Happy WOYWW!

  19. What an ace ATC - don't you just love art in the mail? It always makes the day better. That is one big flutterby! Hope your day keeps looking up, Happy WOYWW Cindy #58

  20. What a neat ATC you received! It was awfully nice that it appeared on a day when you were having things go wrong. Cool moth, too. Thanks for popping over to visit me -- happy WOYWW! ~ Laura #14

  21. Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous creature! Glad you got a photo of him. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #12

  22. Lovely moth photo - never seen one that big. It's always a treat to get surprise post like that. x Jo #46

  23. Hi Sandra, a lovely ATC, and what a glorious moth! He/She is beautiful.Glad your bad day started to improve as it went on. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #37 xxx

  24. Planning and events seldom agree!
    Love your colorful and creative space- that critter is giving me ideas for an ATC!
    Let me know if you would like to swap for the WOYWW Anniversary!

  25. What a very cool and layered ATC. At first I thought the moth was another card creation, lol. So realistic, ha.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments.

    Happy Woyww,

    Sandy #2

  26. Sounds like you've had a bit of a day of it, Sandra. Hope the car is feeling better soon!!!
    What a thrill to receive such a lovely ATC from across the seas. I must admit I thought you'd created the moth too, wow, it's a beauty!
    Hugs Lisax #54

  27. WOW, what an amazing insect that is...and it's enormous! Good idea putting your finger in for scale, I'd have had no idea otherwise...
    Hope your car is better now!
    Hugs, LLJ 41 xx

  28. A fear of things with wings in the real world makes me take a deep breath, but made from red rubber mounted onto a wooden block I can cope. I love to see pictures but couldn't put my hand into the picture. A nice ATC card.

  29. An amazing picture of that moth, Sandra. What a lovely gift, too - a great surprise when things weren't turning out as you had hoped.
    Have a great week, and I trust you get your car back soon.

  30. Great ATC you received and looks like your painting is progressing.
    Thanks for sharing catiecuddles @55

  31. Amazing moth/butterfly, great photo. BJ#39

  32. What a beautiful butterfly! I am hoping that all my new plants will attract loads of bee, butterflies and other insects. Almost everything that I am putting in is for that purpose and to provide great perfume day and night. Hope you soon get your car back. Mine was fixed in five minutes yesterday, turned out to be a connection come unplugged. I am looking forward to seeing the painting when it is finished. xx Maggie #85

  33. Beautiful photos today. I love the atc but that moth/butterfly is awesome! I asked DH (he who knows all) and he said he thinks it is a moth. No matter it is beautiful! Great looking desk too btw! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie aka okienurse #72
