Interesting story, this card is from the Netherlands and I saw there was another postcard in the post box also from the Netherlands. I thought "More mail from Holland?" turns out for once the postcard wasn't addressed to me but to my entire family, as it was from our relatives in Holland. Funny how things work sometimes XD
Anyways this cool DS was in-exchange for making a card for my exchange partner, since she faved one of my previous cards I made for someone. It says "impact."
I can fairly say I've been to a number of places in the Netherlands but for some reason I only notice these slim houses in Amsterdam. Still love the stamp though, and those houses XD
I was wondering about the image at first until I discovered that this was from the wedding of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima of the Dutch Royal Family. Didn't expect to see that coming lol
And 2 (or 3?) interesting stamps from the Netherlands, I haven't seen these before so I'm quite pleased with them =)
Grizzly Bear takes it easy...Coastal British Columbia, Canada
Also known as brown bears, BC's coastal grizzlies (Ursus arctos) are vegetarians during the spring and early summer months. In late summer and fall, they fatten themselves on spawning salmon to prepare for hibernation. They may no yet be endangered, but their mainland coast habitat is shrinking.
No "official" mail today, just this awesome bear postcard from Vancouver Island! I faved this card for another person and the original person who sent it to her was nice enough to send me a copy. Thanks again =)
Maybe I should invest in these series stamps and just tack multiple stamps on cards instead of those bland international ones...
Moose are the largest members of the deer family and are generally solitary animals, except during mating season. Cows usually bear one offspring after a gestation period of 230 days. Calves weigh between 24 to 35 pounds at birth and have reddish-brown coats.
For someone who comes from a country filled with moose, I've never seen a calf before. I also love how curious it looks as well.
This is Glacier National Park in Montana. Montana is the closest state to Alberta, I wouldn't mind visiting this park one day.
