The Happiness Tree

This weeks Sunday Stamps theme included, "unusual shape", there is no doubt the 'go to' country must be Finland, always inventive with shapes and themes.  I was spoilt for choice but as I have just received these two this week from Eeva I share them here .  They are from a miniature sheet called 'The Happiness Tree', the stamps hang from the tree:
The sheet was issued in May  for Spring and Summer celebrations such as  invitations, congratulations or summer greetings. A perfect way to celebrate a summer birthday. The graphic artist is Päivi Unenge who has also illustrated children's books and postcards.

I have posted the next two before
 but I couldn't resist repeating them for I have never seen the shape of the one on the right, the Friendship Bird, ever before.  The cupid is from the Drops of Happiness set.  I wonder what new shapes Posti will delight stamp lovers with in the future?

Those are cute stamps. They would be fun to use with coordinating stickers.

My Finnish stamps are boring in comparison with these and those shown by Viridian. All new to me.
