Frog Postcards From a Friend in Finland

My friend in Finland, Jyri, sent me 20 frog postcards!

The first eight postcards on this page are Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd. from Finland. The next is one from a series on proverbs from Paris. The last one was made by one of Jyri's friends. A special thanks to Jyri for the translations into English!

Here they are:
