France and Finland

Time to play catch up again! I've been MIA for a couple months. I only have about 6 cards to get posted but wanted to get them on before I start receiving some more. I want to start getting a little more active on postcrossing than I have been lately.

The first here is one from Montpellier, France that I received back in September through a private trade.

The second is an official card from Finland (FI-215736)
