wish I knew what this said 🙂 I need to ask my penpal! But I love this oversized, colorful card with art (or perhaps the text?) by Marleena Ansio. In any case, it is a fun card for my collection 🙂 (Note: If you can read Finnish and can tell me what this means, please leave a comment! Thanks!)

Here you go:

Eväsretki = a picnic
Etana = a snail
Elefantti = an elephant
Esikko = a primrose
Erätuli = bonfire
Enkeli = an Angel
Elmeri = (a name of that dog I guess)

The long text (quite a free translation)

“A snail predicts a lovely weather,
a camper marches briskly,
a hedgehog fries sausage in the bonfire and Elmeri the dog smells it from afar.”
