Two Special Cards

Two Special Cards

Two more cards arrived at my doorstep today. Both cards this time were rather special, for different reasons. There’s something about Postcrossing cards I didn’t realize at first. The ID number indicates the total number of cards sent from a particular country. For instance, the last card I sent had an ID number of 314666. That means it was the 314,666th postcard sent from Canada. The last card I received from Germany had an ID number of 1872670… that’s card #1,872,670 from Germany!

Imagine my thrill when I received this card from Macedonia today. First, it’s a card from Macedonia, my first from there. Then, the ID number on that card is 2890. That’s a pretty small number! That is pretty cool!



And, it’s another bridge.

The second card is the second card I’ve received from China. This is such a pretty card. I’m assuming they’re cherry blossoms; it’s an interesting layout, don’t you think?

As lovely as I think this card is (and I may have it rotated the wrong way…not sure), the back is just as interesting. Check out the stamps on this card!

Make sure to click to enlarge the view. Normally, I like to use the interesting stamps as the feature image in a post but in this case there are just so many stamps and the image would be too big! I love these stamps! Thank you, LBL!

There you have it, two great postcards! At this point, I’m at 118 cards sent, 111 cards received, and 6 out of 11 travelling. That means I can send another five cards this weekend.
