Three of the first cards do not appear to be part of a series, but two of them are designed by Leendert Jan Vis. The last five are Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. A special thanks to Jyri for the translations into English!

1. "ROHKEASTI VAIN TÄNNE PÄIN PRINSSINI! ( Bravely towards here my prince! )" This card was printed in Finland by Paperitaide and was mailed in 1996.
2. "ROHKEASTI VAIN TÄNNE PÄIN PRINSSINI!" This card is just like to one above except it doesn't have the little duck sticker on it. It also was mailed from Finland, but I cannot read the year.
3. "I feel so lonely without you" This card was not mailed. It was designed by Leendert Jan Vis, Paperclip International.
4. "I just called to say: Hello!" This card was also designed by Leendert Jan Vis, Paperclip-Holland.
5. "YSTÄVÄT LAINEILLA (Friends on waves)" This card was not mailed. It stated on the back: "2345 KORTIN VALMISTUS (from): PENTTI HARALA KY (Ltd); ESPOO" "PIIRROS(Drawing): OSMO OMPPU OMENAMÄKI"
6. "Hope your Birthday is Full of Surprises!" There is a lot of graffitti which I won't put on here. This is a 1994 Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. card with an Arundel, England address. The artist looks like Miranda x, who is the same artist for all of the Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. cards that follow.
7. "PALJON ONNEA! ( Good Luck)" This is another 1994 Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. card, from Linnapaperi Oy Puh (Phone).
8. "Serenade for you is our duty..." "Serenadi sulle ihan velvollisuutemme on..." This is also a 1994 Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. card, from Linnapaperi Oy Puh.
9. "Montako vuotta sanoitkaan? (How many years did you say?)" "Lopeta (Stop it)! Hee Hee Hee!" "Ihanko Totta?! (Really?!)" "Lopeta! Lopeta!" "Mahaan koskee! (It hurts my stomach!) Hee! Hee!" This is another 1994 Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. card, from Linnapaperi Oy Puh.
10. "Upeet Juhlat! (What a magnificent party!) Pidink's mä puheen? (Did I hold a speech?)" This is a 1995 Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. card, from Linnapaperi Oy Puh.
