A timely postcard.

Thanks Debbie for this cute card, I sure could use some help to make me run fast!
The fruit is called in Japan, Crow Melon and I can only guess why it is considered a charm to make you run fast. Although,.. as the English name is Snake Gourd,  I would run away from it! Both rather sinister names for such a decorative plant.
I tried yesterday's etegami in a different colour and I think I like it better, any opinions?


  1. I like both versions of your crane etegami, although the Japanese name stamp (chop) lends a particularly nice touch to this one. : )

  2. I would like to send you etegami. Where do I send?

  3. Kri I will send you an email.
