I got this card through a direct swap. Direct swap means, personally messaging another collector that you are interested to swap with a certain card she posted as “FOR SWAP.”
I used GF Philippine as a swap for this card. Transportation category is one of my fave categories especially trains.
She used two stamps and that fruit stamp is a candy to my eye. 🙂
By the way, should you wonder if Formosa is another name for Taiwan. No! Here’s the right description of the place —
The Republic of Formosa (literally Taiwan Democratic State) was a short-lived republic that existed on the island of Taiwan in 1895 between the formal cession of Taiwan by the Qing Dynasty of China to the Empire of Japan by the Treaty of Shimonoseki and it being taken over by Japanese troops.
So, now you know! <3
I really love the feeling when I can receive a surprise card friend who travels because it feels nice to be remembered this way. I consider this kind of effort of a thoughtful friend.
This card is from Barbados when sis Jo went there for a vacation.
The postal stamp used: Avocado!
My heart swelled with gratitude after this girl was all cleared for graduation. It made me teary eyed thinking of all her hard efforts the past four years. Adding to that thought is the happiness my mom would feel if she’s still around now. I know that my mom looked forward to this occasion, too!
This is just the beginning of the future success of this girl so we should not get too relaxed after the Graduation exercises this weekend.
I would like to eternally thank the people who have supported this girl in this educational journey! The road to success is endless and this girl will continue on.
The first from Pavel!
And see how the stamps were cancelled?!!!
