Recently sent and received cards – Christmas and small towns

Received cards

This week’s received cards ^ There’s been a bit more post too, Christmas cards and gifts from penfriends which are always lovely to receive ๐Ÿ™‚

In this small collection of received cards, the Polar Express came from USA, the Postcrosser says that she works for the post office so Postcrossing is like job security!

The little character in the snow is a thank you card for taking part in to Postcrossing forum Christmas gift swap. It’s an illustration by Finnish artist Virpi Pekkala. It’s been much to warm for snow here so far.

The beautiful nativity is from Poland. The only problem is the stamps fell off! Inspection of my little post holder found 2 out of 3 stamps…

The lower 2 cards are both pretty places in Germany. They remind me of the great holiday I spent visiting my amazing penfriend in that area ๐Ÿ™‚

Sent cards

A beary Christmas off to Germany for a Christmas card swap, and a village on stilts is off to Russia as part of the December postcard diary. It’s from ‘The earth from the air’, all the pictures are much more exotic than England so I don’t send them much as most people want local views!

Whitby Abbey is heading for Ukraine. I hope they like the misty view with links to Dracula. I’ve just realised they stated a liking for fantasy such as werewolves and vampires and I don’t think I even mentioned the connection! Based on their favorites I thought they’d like this view.

Wollaton Hall is off to Switzerland, it might be the first card I’ve sent to there…

And the collection of all things blue is going to China, to a Postcrosser who likes ‘things’ such as shells and stones. Hopefully this is enough things to make them happy!
