0883 FINLAND - A lake at dawn
I received this postcard thanks to a swap within a group of friends on the topic "yellow". Couldn't be a more appropriate image, with intense colors, hot, reminiscent of summer, for this gloomy winter day that I look out the window.
About the stamps
The first stamp, the cross-shaped self-adhesives one, is part of a series depicting the Finnish Archipelago, about which I wrote here.
The second postcard is a part of the Christmas series issued on November 4, 2013, and inspired by the nostalgic world of scrapbook pictures. The motifs for the stamps, designed by Susanna Rumpu and Ari Lakaniemi, are old drawings used on post cards or scrapbook pictures.
• Christmas Hug (0.65 EUR) - it's on this postcard
• Christmas Tree Boy (first-class stamp)
• Angel (second-class stamp)
