[CLOSED] Chrisbonham11's 10th Postcrossing Birthday British Isles Lottery #2

Hello British Isles Forum Folks!

21 September 2024 is my 10th Postcrossing birthday! On 21 September 2014, I signed up to Postcrossing. I don’t know now how I found out about the project, alas. What I do know is that I’ve had ten grand years as a Postcrosser, and I’m looking forward to the next ten years! The last three years, during which time I’ve interacted with so many of you British Isles folks in this lovely corner of the Internet, have been especially fun.

I have decided to mark my 10th Postcrossing birthday, and share the celebrations, by hosting a monthly Birthday British Isles Lottery each month this year. Each month I will pick out ten unused postcards on a particular theme from my stash. The draw will take place with the assistance of Postbot on the 21st of each month.

The theme for February’s Birthday British Isles Lottery is: Art

Get yourself a curated selection of art postcards from my stash, encompassing works by Vincent van Gogh, Katsushika Hokusai, Sir Joshua Reynolds, and David Shrigley!

  • I will send a private message to the winner after the draw to request their postal address, unless I already have it from another Forum activity.
  • I will then post the prize stash of postcards to the winner via first class post for the UK / via relevant standard postage rate for the Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, or Channel Islands.

Good luck! Thank you for celebrating my 10th Postcrossing birthday with me this year! :postcrossing:

We have a couple of Shrigleys, and his book, my husband’s a fan. This is my fave, I swear we’d be millionaires if it were true lol x
