  1. What a gorgeous postcard! Japan had its New Year postcards at the start of January so I sent a few that I printed myself from a book, but this one would have been perfect to send to my friends.
    Thanks for posting it.

  2. And a happy new year to everyone! Especially Roosters (I'm a buffalo/ox).

  3. Colourful postcard!

  4. Hello Sanna! I was on a lookout for a CNY postcard, given that the event is one of the most celebrated holiday in Singapore -- I didn't find any! Happy to see one here in your page! Thanks for sharing and welcome to the PFTW linky party :D

  5. I've had two postcards so far wishing me a happy year of the rooster. None of them actually had a rooster on it, though! :)

  6. I've seen a tiny picture of this stamp on instagram and I liked it. This large (postcard) version is fascinating, love it!
