pretty stamps かわいい切手

Whenever I send cards or letters, I put commemorative stamps on them. When I send to areas inside Japan, I choose stamps designed of seasonal landmarks, plants, or animals of Hokkaido, while when I send to foreign countries, I choose ones designed images of Japan.

Yesterday, I went to the post office to send some Christmas cards, and I found some pretty stamps designed 'Guri and Gura'. I was very happy to see them because I like the artist, Yuriko Yamawaki very much.

This picture book was from my friend as a celebration of my son's birth a long time ago. I sometimes open it even now. Her pictures make me warmhearted.
I bought a sheet of the stamps soon and used some of them.
I should've taken the picture of the sheet before I cut off some.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

As for 'when I send to foreign countries, I choose....',
I wanted to say about the stamps that are typical Japanese things, such as Ukiyoe, old temples, calligraphy, sumo, Mt.Fuji, and so on.

Does 'image' mean kind of human?
You corrected to 'portraying images of Japan'. Probably you misunderstood (because of my poor English), for example, the Japanese Emperor or someone else.

My Reply:

As I had not known the specifics of the images to be portrayed...
by saying portraying images of Japan, it is inclusive of everything...including people. To portray, is to describe or depict someone or something in a particular way or in a particular art form. As they are stamps, they are images of something or someone. The images could even be of Kanji characters...as they are of Japan.

I hope this clarifies my correction.
