Over the past couple of days, I’ve prepped cards to send off in several Postcrossing Forum trades–including the nearly-always-dormant (but currently moving) Snoopy/Peanuts thread! And though that only accounts for one of the four trades here, there are several Peanuts lovers in the bunch.
Lucy is pounding sand on her way to Dongshan Township, Taiwan. This user wanted senders to draw a cute picture for her, so I did, as you will see below.
Those “bacon strips” are a vegetarian product from Morningstar Farms, and something I’ve been buying & enjoying for years. The card is on its way to Singapore for a Food Package Postcard tag, and as I told that recipient, I just used some of that bacon this week in a veggie BLT with avocado. She’s a dalmatian lover, and you’ll notice that I tried to please her when I adorned the back side of her card.
Let’s go with Lucy, a born leader! That’s from a series of Peanuts character cards printed for the political season. As I told this card’s recipient, who lives in Selangor, Malaysia, I do not think Lucy would make a good President–but I can think of at least once person who would be worse.
Finally we come to the postcard that shows us the time Linus attempted to sell Violet some bogus cat toys. That’s the one that is going off in the Snoopy/Peanuts tag, and it is going to Yokohama, Japan.
Time to show off the backsides of the cards, each one a real party! The stamps I pre-ordered quite some time ago finally arrived this week: they are the Lunar New Year stamps, and also the seashell stamps, which I love. I’m also a huge fan of the shore birds postcard stamps, which I’ve had for quite some time. I’m going to have to rework my stamp math now that the Forever stamp rate has come up; my first attempt, with one Forever stamp plus two postcard stamps, runs a couple of cents over the $1.15 international rate.
