Beiseker, AB

We decided to take a drive in the search of postmarks; that day we got Crossfield and attempted Irricana as well. A score of 2/3 isn't bad, eh?

Not surprisingly it was expired but the postmaster was really good about giving it out and friendly too!

I had completely forgotten about this card since it was tucked away in a giant envelope. My order is a bit off but better than forgetting this cute alphabet card

A friend of a friend sent this to me, she had since moved from Canada to Australia and writes about the extreme changes in temperature!

Wow it's so expensive to send mail in Aussie now!

Crossfield, AB

Another favourite card that it was time to use. On our Postmark hunting trip we visited Crossfield again to try our luck. This time we were able to walk away with something after our failed attempt 2 years ago. The postmark has since expired and though I had intended to send it to myself, there wasn't that much room for a stamp. 

Received the same day it was cancelled: 23.05.2017

Clifford & Jarvis, ON

This photo came out so bad lol Another card from the postcard book by Tushita on antique maps.

Now I can't recall if it's this one or the one below but one of these two is available until the end of August this year and the other until the end of December. 


I have been wanting to use this card for the longest time, glad I could do so for this exclusive cancel!

Southey, SK

I don't always get envelopes back from my cancel seeking quests, usually when I do I'm greeted by good news but not this time. Inside was my card (not cancelled), the note that accompanied it, and even the envelope! There was also this greeting card, written on it the Postmaster explained that the cancel was taken when the PO was broken into a few years back. That's very unfortunate since it was a nice cancel, and hopefully the damage from the break in wasn't too costly for them. 

Paisley, ON

I found some older Ikea cards from my last thrift store haul (just like the card sent from Jasper.) I found a lot of these square shaped animals, they're so cute and of course fitting for another cow themed cancel!

Wish it was stamped where there was some free space, but oh well. 

Jasper, AB

A pretty mountainous card that I had to use for our trip to Jasper, glad to have gotten this cancel in person!

Unfortunately the cancels didn't come out very clear, here is a better picture. I have to admit the post office is also very nice and historic!

Vegreville, AB

One of my favourite cards out of a stack another postcrosser had sent me blank. Just love those pastel colours; colours that make me think of Easter. It was as close a fitting card for our trip to Vegreville.

This cancel is unlisted and available at the town's only post office. Please write to:

My one and only good photo of the giant egg, of course it had to have my thumb in it! 


Hans Gedda (f. 1942)

An interesting art piece coming from Sweden, a matching theme with a matching stamp. Wonderful! The person on the card is author/artist Jonas Gardell; him and his husband Mark Levengood are famous gay icons in Sweden, is what the sender wrote.
