Direct Swap - Stanley from China

I don't even remember the last time I received an official card. I stopped sending cards early to mid-December as it figured the post office and people were busy enough with the holidays. Sadly (and very irritatingly) most of that last bunch of cards sent are still travelling and the users haven't signed on since then either. Luck, or unluck, of the draw, yes, but to have 3 or 4 cards in a row expire (or near expire) kind of "hurts" the cards coming to you too. So, I kept myself busy with a bunch of different swaps.

Stanley and I swapped back in the Fall and at the time agreed to swap Year of the Snake stamps when our countries issued them. His card arrived earlier in the week. I normally do not include the full back of the card but it was just so beautiful I couldn't resist. Stanley, was also able to have the card stamped with the special Year of the Snake cancellation.

  1. Wow - this IS a very special one! So colorful.

    I also stopped doing official cards for a long while. Before I started again this month, the last time I sent an official card was in April 2012!
