297th DS

A lot of cool and interesting cards coming from my friend in Finland. I love them all! The Finnish Nightmare cards never cease to make me laugh either; I relate to them so well.

The cool thing about this card in particular is that it's an ad for one of the elections they had. Love it!

My favourite of them all!


A lovely artistic rendering of Guangzhou. Thanks to the English on the card, the tower on the left is the Canton Tower. It is the 2nd highest tower in both the world and in Asia.

I just love how this cat card turned out! Also I'm surprised that the alcohol ink didn't bleed through when it was made. From one of the many FB group games.

I was a little surprised this was from Canada because of what was written on the front, still really cool card. First time I got a wooden official. It's also much thicker than wooden cards I've received in the past. 3 mm thick to be exact.

That stamp selection is just great though!

That one time I didn't have an aurora or polar bear postcard! That's ok, I can use this super shiny holographic llama postcard. It's all good lol

This cancel just came out amazing! I've seen it used with green ink, which looks just as good.

Got a surprise cancel and RAS coming from Killaloe. Cool to find an unlisted one. Also love the matching cancel and stamp!

Apart of a bunch of holographic cards that I found on sale. How can I say no to a cat card? Not very theme matching but gotta send it to myself somehow!

What a beautiful panorama; quite a number of ships out that day. Wherever this may be.

From my friend in Germany, I love these alpacas! Or are they llamas? I can never tell when they're shaved. The card says: today we celebrate!

And the last card come from my friend in Japan; the little embroidery flower is a pull tab that said "congratulations." A cute and cool little extra. Thank you.

A very cool GF mock up; it's nice to have infographs about cities too. Never seem to see much of them really.

The Himalayas is a mountain range which separates the Great Indian Plains from the Tibetan Plateau. This range is home to nine of the ten highest peaks on the Earth, including the highest, Mt. Everest. The abrupt rise of the Himalayan Mountains from less than 500 m to more than 8000 in a few hundred kms has resulted in a huge diversity of flora and fauna. Nearly 1000 birds have been recorded in the Himalayas of which 15 species are fully endemic.
The Tickell's brown hornbill (Anorrhinus tickelli), also known as rusty-cheeked hornbill is found in forests in northeastern India, Burma and adjacent western Thailand. At about 60-65 cm (24-26 in) in length, it is a medium-sized hornbill, dark brown above and red-brown below. The male has brighter rufous cheeks and throat. Juveniles of both sexes resemble adult males. It inhibits evergreen and deciduous hill forest from foothills to 1500 m.

Another fab India Post related card, love the info but not the typing lol This card unfortunately took the rough way to get here (perhaps through the Himalayas itself?!) and was considerably bent. I'm impressed that the photo app I use straightened it out fairly well.
