Got a letter from Timbres last week. Inside were some goodies...

A *huge* commercial cover from Argentina with solo use of the 2011 World Blood Donor Day stamp (I couldn't fit the whole thing on my scanner bed :shock: ):

Thanks Tim!! :D :D Naomi is away at camp for the summer, but I'll put these in her box for when she gets back. She spent a few days between the end of school and the beginning of camp sorting through all her stamps. I'm sure she'll love these, thanks very much! :D

Got a great package in the mail yesterday from Raz, with a nice organ donation stamp on the cover.

Inside was this Return to Sender envelope from the Book Club Associates:

ImageImage

I wasn't sure why he sent it to me until I looked at the back:

ImageImage

:D :D

Also inside were these stamps and pieces:

Image

Image

At first I thought they were for my daughter's animal and bird collection! :lol: Some great cancels there related to blood donation and TB eradication. :D

Finally, this peel-and-stick booklet with one of the organ donation stamps still inside:

Image

Image

Thanks very much Ron, I'll be posting pictures of some of these items on my Gift of Life thread at some point... :D :D :D

Here are the stamps that I sent to Maria in return for the animal and WWF stamps for Naomi: some very colourful comic and cartoon stamps from Japan, and a couple of Escher stamps from Sweden.

Image
Image

Image

I have alot of recent used Japan stamps if anyone else is interested in swapping - there are a lot of Japan issues these days, but they are very colourful and quite addictive to collect... :D I've also started a chain for recent used Japan if anyone is interested, there are still 2 spots left: click here.

Hi Ariane

It's too bad it got sprayed by the inkjet...there must be a way to get around that!! Some of the covers I get in the mail get sprayed, but others manage to escape... :?

I do collect used Europa stamps, but most of my holes are from the last few years...if you can help I would be most appreciative! :D My Europa thread is here: click

Also got a packet from drvvr, which had been opened by the Canada Border Services Agency (they put the tape right across the souvenir sheet on the front, luckily it peeled off without leaving any damage). That's the first time I've had something opened by them - no idea what they were looking for.

Here's the cover, front and back:

...and the contents:

a FDC for the 1976 blood transfusion issue
Image

a FDC for the 1987 eye donation issue with pamphlet
Image

Image

a pamphlet for the Golden Jubilee of the Armed Forces Transfusion Centre
Image

a special cover for the Hemophilia Care Centre promoting blood donation
Image

2 Meghdoot postcards with the logo of the National Programme for Control of Blindness
