Actually I got this postcard in envelope. And with a little note, what said 'This was delivered to us by mistake.' So I was very surprised when I got this envelope, because I had no idea what company it was and why they sent a letter to me. When I opened the envelope I was even more surprised. But now I'm very thankful for this :)
