Choo Choo with a Pearl Earring
The Korean Jetoy company started on 2001 offering design stationery with several motifs, but fame and fortune came when they created Choo Choo, the cute big eyed cat, and started applying its image to well known paintings and characters, like this one where ans adaptation of the famous Vermeer 1665 painting "Girl With a Pearl Earring". The Jetoy cards are highly collectable and lots of people on the postcrossing site asks for them - this is my first and after seeing the reaction of my wife (she loves cats) I think I must start a Jetoy collection as well. Thank you very much for this card and the amazing stamps with cats you've used. This postcard took 17 days to arrive!
