From left to right: Barn owl, Long eared owl, Snowy owl
Little owl, Tawny owl, Short eared owl
Look at all those owls! These cards were sent from the UK from someone I had tagged or had tagged me. That was very nice of them to have sent all of this!
Stamps attached to the owl card to decorate it
An interesting card with the logo hidden in the picture. Can you find it?
Another cool card from Cows that had to be sent away for a cow related cancel. It's funny there are a lot of cow themed cancels.
Yet another expired cancel
I've had this shiny holographic card for awhile but wasn't sure where to send it to. I decided since we were going through Rocky Mountain House on our trip to Jasper, let's check for a cancel there. Sure enough it was still valid and I finally got to use this beauty!
2 days from Rocky via Post, it looks like

Another cool card made by my friend in Japan. This card shows the giant easter egg in Vegreville, AB. We went on a trip there recently but more on that in another post.
This cancel, this wonderful wonderful cancel of Oscar-sama (yes I'm a fan of her lol) This cancel shows Oscar, one of the main protagonists of the "Rose of Versailles" a famous shoujo manga by Riyoko Ikeda. The manga was first published in 1972 and an anime soon followed. The manga was never officially released in English until 2016.
Another card from my friend, this time of Princess Sapphire from the "Princess Knight" by Osamu Tezuka. The Oscar cancel would have been more fitting in this case (as both characters are females that are raised as males and masters of the sword) but that's alright!
This cancel shows the other protagonist from the "Rose of Versailles," Marie Antoinette.
When was the last time I received a tourist card from Paris? Actually I don't think I ever have; a nice surprise to say the least!
This is another card I retrieved from the box of card that was donated to one of our meetups many moons ago. The pink spots remind me of a lava lamp. Not a very fitting card for where it was sent to, but nice enough all the same.
Lucky for me, that one of the German calendar cards I was given had a valid cancel for the area. The under title says "farm building near Davidson, SK."
Some lovely looking art mailed from Soligorsk, Belarus, where I assume the sender was visiting. The picture almost looks like it was pressed onto the paper like a stamp. Very cool!
