Vanessa, thank you so much, it actually arrived yesterday morning but after I left, and I just got back in this evening. I was just coming on to say the card and bookmarks are lovely, and I'm impressed you found one for each of my names! Those were really thoughtful, thank you again, I love them :)

I thought it had a sort of historical theme. It's interesting how names came about/their history.

Got mine. Haven't been able to send one out yet.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Mine just landed today. A very pretty one with that foldover the page magnets. Might come in handy for all those times I lose my place when the book falls off the bed in the night. Thanks, Nefret.

You're welcome. Sorry it was late, I couldn't get to the post office for a while.

The post office must be awful that time of year. I'm always grateful there's a postage meter and UPS pickup at the office. Boss doesn't care if we use it, as long as we pay for the cost.
