And this is my oldest sent card with an image.

(See the darkness of the sky
and the brightness of the moon.
Hear the birds singing
on the branches of a tree.
Let memories take you
to an enchanted summer.)

This is the newest one of my postcards that got registered:

And this is my latest recieved postcard:


I sent my first postcard to Germany on the 9th of February 2007. The ID was FI-131820. That time the postcard wall didn’t exist (and I still don’t upload the cards I send) so there is no photo of it.

My first received card is this: (notice the big difference in the IDs, back then Finland was the ultimate Postcrossing country :wink: )

I still remember how disappointed I was with my first card. It’s super thin and has only two sentences in German. That is also reason why I always pay extra attention on the card and message when I draw an address for a newbie with 0 received cards so they will have a nice start for this great hobby.

Latest sent card was registered today:

I haven’t received any official cards after the 2nd of August 2019. (I’m using travel mode at the moment) so this is the latest:

It seems that I’ve been lazy and I haven’t uploaded the picture. Maybe I could do it tomorrow if I can find the card. :slight_smile:
Edit//: Photo added

as for me, when I joined postcrossing I hadn’t scanner yet and could not upload every card, besides when I’d seen the first received card it seemed too dark to me, but it is still in my collection and I’ve scanned it today - need to admit here, that now I like it more as it is a museum card from the other continent)

as for the first my sent card - I never thought about this coincidence before, but it also was a museum card)

as for the last registred card sent by me(440) - it is one of expired cards that was re-sent

and the latest of my received cards(440)

Hi all - I thought there might have been a bit too much overlap with the What postcards have you sent or received today? - #776 by isagv thread, so I’ve changed this one to what your first sent and first received postcards were :slight_smile:
