Thank you ladies.
Back of the card reads..

"The smiles greetings booklet of 1990, received such acclaim from the design world, that it is re-released with NVI indicator as first class stamps"

Looking at the Benham site, I am of the opinion these have little to do with Philately, more as gifts.
I see them on eBay for $6 or so.
I'll use as an envelope stiffener.

Samoset (also Somerset, c.1590c.1653) was an Abenaki sagamore and the first Native American to make contact with the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony. He startled the colonists on March 16, 1621, by walking into Plymouth Colony and greeting them in English, saying "Welcome, Englishmen.".

Hierarchy of Post Offices.

The following definitions of " Sub Office " and " Receiving Office " or " Receiving House " are from the official " Rules for Sub-Postmasters and for Provincial Town Receivers,' London, 1878, pages 18 and 19 :

" The term ' Post Office ' applies to all Post Offices, whether Head Office, Sub Office, or Receiving Office. A ' Head Office ' is an office subordinate only to a Metropolitan Office. Both Sub Offices and Receiving Offices are under Head Offices. Those offices where letters can be posted only if within the boundary of the Town free delivery of a Head Office or Sub Office are called Receiving Offices; and offices beyond that boundary, but nevertheless subordinate to a Head Office, are called Sub Offices."

I don't recognize this cancellation, and can't seem to find it.
Any ideas?

Initial immediate guess...
ROSSCOMMON B.O. (BO = Branch Office)

It is Sir,
101 Cannon St B.O.E.C.
BO = Branch Office EC = East Central London (appears a deformed "C")

See below image

I'll do some further reconnoitring.

I think you do retroveal
If you can ID 3 or more definite conjoined alphabets, it would be helpful.

It is, without doubt, a double ring felt, parcel post strike.
Due to the clarity of the text, I'd change my mind to a INDIA RUBBER strike.

Cannon Street, London.
Etymology
The area around Cannon Street was initially the place of residence of the candle-makers. The name first appears as Candelwrichstrete (i.e. "Candlewright Street") in 1190. The name was shortened over 60 times as a result of the local cockney dialect and settled on Cannon Street in the 17th century, and is therefore not related to the firearms.

Site of the "London Stone" A bundi (aust slang for rock) a limestone boulder
that has been on the location since the 1100's.

Wandsworth is the only "worth" I can see in the London SW District,
however, no way I can reconcile Wandsworth with the smudge on the stamp
The length of the apparent word is too long.

Remains "Unidentified" for mine.

WANDSWORTH SW Single ring eBay
Code AX = 1pm

These single rings not listed in the Database.
