I like Postcrossing for the many opportunities it offers us all and connecting us with people with a shared passion for postcards. I am totally hooked on sending postcards! I always try to fulfill the wishes of a Postcrosser on the receiving end. It feels important to me and I hope you feel the same way.
Which ever card you choose to send me, I would be interested in learning something about yourself, your hobby, favorite film. I won't mind a folded card in an envelope. Beautiful stamps would make a nice bonus.
Please send your tourist & multi-view card to someone who will appreciate it more.
Some of us need some help with what to send, I know I do! If you like it short and sweet, here's my TOP3 guaranteed to make me smile:
1.Cat illustrations 2.Teddy bears 3. Seaside or landscape
If you don't have any of the above, maybe my Favorites could inspire you? It's a mix of cards I have received, as well as cards I like and hope to receive. Thank you for your time!

The following is for those who think "more is more" 😉
I live in the countryside with husband and our two beautiful cats, a ragdoll and a Maine Coon. I love cats, gardening and cards! My passion for cards dates back to childhood when I visited my great aunt Anna in the summer. We would sit on a blanket under the lilac trees and admire, for hours, the cards she had received over several decades. Inspired by Anna's card traditions, I have sent cards to friends and family for years.
I am interested in doing swaps for cat illustrations, teddy bear cards and other cards on my list of preferences, as follows:
Cat illustrations by Andrey Arinushkin, Irina Garmashova-Cawton, Lowell Herrero, Anna Hollerer, Lesley Anne Ivory, Renate Koblinger, Henry Lee, Mariya Pavlova, Cat breeds by Postallove, Linda Jane Smith, Louis Wain and Francien van Westering. Do you have a favorite artist? Please share!
