Then this arrived from the UK. Post early is right - franked on Dec 2nd, but didn't arrive until Dec 20th - 18 days is a long time for mail from the UK, even at Christmas.
This stamp shows Jesus in a manger with animals looking on.
When I first saw this set of stamps I was not that impressed, however on closer inspection the little star details are very nicely done and they've really grown on me. My photo does not do the stamp justice.
The stamp closely resembles the card inside, apart from the fact that the ox is only on the stamp.
And another one arrived on the 21st. Pity about the pen mark.

And merry Christmas to all the people who take part each week - have a great holiday.
