A fantastic array of stamps!

402nd Tag

The beautiful Dogwood, which thrives in the soft Pacific clime was suitably selected as the official floral emblem of the Province of British Columbia in 1956.

From another FB game and once more another educational card. This time coming from BC and about their provincial flower!

401st Tag

From one of the FB games and quite an educational card too; always good to have a historical refresher since I remember learning about Louis Riel in school.

Tampere Meet up Card

A wonderful surprise came in from my friend in Finland! The Tampere meet up card! Wonderful and the art is very well done.

The Postcrossing stamp and a custom cancel, it doesn't get any better than this!

Orillia, ON

Couldn't really find a matching card, so I chose a card I liked. Of course after the fact I found a cancel that would match this one better, but when does that not happen?!

Don't forget this is only valid until the end of the year!


A very nice collage card from my favourite paper company in the Philippines "Papemelroti." This is an easy favourite to say the least.

Postmark attempts post

Attempted to get a postmark from Levis, QC. There is no postmark listed for them but I had hoped they would have had a matching Haunted Cancel like Banff and Winnipeg does. The Winnipeg one is still a mystery to me but that's for further down the post.

Forgot this one expired awhile back but it was too late by the time I had realized and this had been sent away. Oh well!

Received: 01.06.2017


And once more another attempt that didn't quite resulting in anything but that's the way it goes. At least my card made it back to me!

Received: 05.06.2017

Since the cancel name didn't show up, I had sent to Clandonald, Alberta.


And lastly here is a cancel that did arrive; but! But it wasn't the cancel I had intended to receive! Like I wrote above, I had sent away trying to get a matching Haunted Canada cancel after seeing the one an acquaintance had. I was told to mail to the St. Norbert branch and was informed that they did not have the cancel nor did they know who had it. I received this cancel and my card back not cancelled. The search continues.

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
