Hi, thanks for viewing my profile!
New collection for 2023: Swearing! Any cards with cuss words / the f-bomb are welcome.
My pride and joy is my Elvis Presley postcard collection. I am ALWAYS looking for new Elvis cards!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/sets/72157648766817757/
Also seeking new British Royalty / Queen Elizabeth II:
I live in the capital city of Canada and my hobbies include crochet, knitting, Lego, music, and eating (way too much) Mexican food!
I love tourist/view cards. The only thing I don't care for is animal cards. I really do appreciate all cards I receive. I love a decorated backside (I'm addicted to washi tape!) and a nice message as much as the visual on the front!
Besides Elvis and Queen Elizabeth I love and collect:

My favourites here are cards I would like to have in my collection.
I hope the above didn't sound demanding. All I really hope is that the card represents YOU - your likes, your town, your hobbies, etc. They can be prepaid postcards, new, vintage, or those you've made... I'm just happy to be a part of this great project and will love any card sent my way!
Do you remember the first postcard you ever got? Mine was from my great aunt & uncle while they were in Florida.
