All the way from Minsk.

Slava who is able to read Japanese (sigh with envy) has sent this very snake-like character which says "snake" in an archaic Chinese style (Tenso), "ah so" he knows Chinese too! I am a bit puzzled as to which way is "up" but will go with the English greeting. Thanks Slava.

Another exquisite papercut card from Fumiko in Saga City Japan. She has used origami papers to create a "fool the eye" ball, similar to those made in origami. The whole thing is like stained glass with the dark frames for each paper. Thank you Fumiko.
