Sunday Stamps #121

It's time for Sunday Stamps.  Theme this week: Stamps from China, or Taiwan.



Lately, when I have been sending out Postcrossing postcards, I am opting to put 2 first class stamps on the postcard plus a 20 cent stamp to meet the international postal rate.  Some people don't notice but some postcrossers appreciate the interesting stamps.  Some postcrossers in China must be doing the same thing, because I have received some interesting combinations of stamps.


This set of three is from one card, and

 
from another, larger, card.
 
What stamps from China or Taiwan do you have this week?  Add your link below.
 
Edited to add: theme for next week: Children, toys and games, anything related to children.

the drawings on these stamps are so intricate and pretty.
I also put several stamps on most of my cards. Come to think of it, and now that I look at my other postcards from China, none of them have only one stamp.

I also put more than 1 stamp at the back of the postcards I mail out. The rate is P13 and there's no P13 stamp. So it's usually a combination of two P7 or a P10 or P3.

Most the Taiwan and China postcards that I received also came with more than 1 stamp. I love how colorful the stamps from China can be, like the ones you posted here.

I knew that there would be more modern stamps than mine from China and like these would all be new to me.

I can't always get hold of pretty stamps so mostly I use only one special stamp with a few make-weights. If someone says they like stamps I always try to make them all interesting if I can.

I love the traditional dancers.
