Whew! I received FIVE cards yesterday and one today!! Woohoo! I am happily surprised this frigid cold winter day. :o)
The first one I received is from the Detroit, Michigan area. (US-2047761) It's one of those jokey joke ones. I have to admit it. Even though I am really not picky at all, I really don't like these kind of cards. They are the kind you see in every postcard rack and kind of dopey. I have a few of these in my Send box but I never send them out. LOL! Why the hell did I buy them then? Oh well. I am happy and thankful for the time and care of every Postcrosser who stops to put a stamp on a card to me. I still feel special to receive the cards in my mailbox!
Cute doggy from the Netherlands! (NL-1642861) It looks like he's saying that line from the Pixar movie 'UP' -- "I have just met you and I LOVE you!" :o)
Sweet polar bears sent from Las Vegas, Nevada. (US-2047678)
Really, really cool building located in Hamm, Germany. (DE-1879094) The Glass Elephant in Maximilian Park. HERE is a link to it.
Cool card from China (CN-820931)
And this is the one I received today and I adore it! I just took the kids to the zoo last Saturday and we saw the tigers playing around and making that barking noise they make. They were beautiful! Received from Russia. (RU-1460311) Cool stamps too!
I'm sending out cards everyday but it's been slow receiving so far. I can't wait to start getting bombarded by them!! Sooooon! I received this one today from Illinois by way of a direct swap. I love those USA movie director stamps. I have those to send out too. That's John Huston, director of The Maltese Falcon.
I took most of 2012 off Postcrossing and postcard swapping. I really missed it, but my heart just wasn't in it. :o( Well it is now!! I'm Postcrossing like mad now!
Here is the first card I've received this year. It's from a German woman who lives in Ohio now so it's of Dusseldorf, Germany via Ohio... US-2035231... received today. I really love its multiview design, like a seamless collage. It's more artistic than the boxy boxes. Blagh.
