Birthday Bonanza from The Bruns Babes

Always exciting to get one of these screams Vizma as soon as I pull it from the box!!!!

but when I turn it over, I realize it's a Double Bruns.  Everyone here knows The Viz(she's hard to miss) but you may wanna keep your eyes peeled for Liene, her 13 yr old niece and mailart protege 

anxious to see what would be in there from Liene and was excited by what I saw!  The stitching, the eggheads, the icecream in hand.all the watching eyes and then the leg, oh the leg which I quickly realized was no leg at all...very clever and funny too. Raise your hands if you think this kid could be a natural, I know I do and I sure hope she keeps sending me mail :)))

And the back.  Took me a minute to notice it had a real note to me...sweet birthday wishes after she introduces herself and then she says her sweet Aunty has told her ALL about me and how I like to tell dirty jokes. What, WHAT, WhAt?!?!? Obviously,  I have no idea what she could be talking about but I know will be looking at this mailart over and over.  THANKS LIENE!!! xo

and an Octoviz or maybe Vizmapus, not sure but either way, very cool. Great color combo and the selective face cutout with words in her face is perfection. 

a countdown calender, so fun...well, maybe not the bloody snatched arm part  ;P

And then the card and prizes , including a new stamp for Angel mail only, YAY! But please tell me how to mount it. I am new to the world of stamping and know none of the tricks. 

I've been rubbing my lamp and making my wishes, hopefully they will all come true. Thank-you both very much for adding to the birthday love I've been feeling as of late!  <3

P.S. V~Octoviz is framed and hanging out next to a Happy Buddah :)))))))))))))))))))

Awesomeness from Vizma! Next year I will definitely be remindIng her of my birthday! ;)
I really love the idea of getting nieces, nephews and kids involved in making mailart. It's a shame I have none of the above myself!
