Christmas Card to and from Ivana + Mini Lion Study

This is the Christmas card I sent to Ivana

and this is the one she sent to me.

Aren't the Czech stamps beautiful? 

The lion stamp looks a bit like some Finnish stamps, because both Finland and Czech seem to have a lion in their coat of arms! Interesting! 

This is an example of a sheet of Finnish stamps from year 2006.

Christmas Cats

This is the Christmas card to my friend Lieselotte in Germany.
Watercolor and gold ink has been used to the surface preparation and then there are pictures of our cats Sissi and Killi.

This letter with a lovely drawing and beautiful stamps arrived from Bree in Malaysia. 

Bree's way to decorate the letter with her drawings is wonderful.
