Primorsky Opera and Ballet Theater
An interesting card from Russia arrived with a printed poem translated into English on the back. It doesn't state who the poem is by though.
The Call of the Wild. The salmon are returning to the native rivers where they were born. Steller's sea eagle is in Sakhalin's Red Book.
Sakhalin and the Kuriles
Previous Ocean Isles of Russia
A nice blank bonus card :D
Sequoia National Park - California: Giant Sequoia trees, awesome canyons, plunging stream and sparking lakes greet the visitor to this spectacular mountain park.
I'm starting to really like these travel posters, there's something about the style of them that's so pleasant to look at.
Another interesting ad card from Finland, this one urging people to check their HIV status. The ad card was surprisingly translated into English on the back.
Yay extra stamps :D
Another wonder GF card, however it's not from Poland but sent from Austria. Still very nice regardless, it's also great that they're updated as well.
Some cool cards came in from my friend in Finland! Always great to hear from them! The back of the ad card was translated to say "Not to the closet again? Let's make the diversity of elderly people visible!"
Wow this ended up fairly over exposed as well. Loving that shade of pink though!

Awhile back I had made the layered base for two cards but wasn't sure what image to put on top. Finally I came up with something and I liked the end result so much I couldn't bring myself to send it away. Instead I got it cancelled so I could keep it (I know how selfless of me...) The Postmaster was super about it! They sent the card back in an envelope (the card had some damage despite being in an envelope both ways because of how the card was made) and even put a cancel on that and on the note that I had sent. So cool! Thank you!
Qin'an Hall, 1922
If this photo was taken in the year stated on the back, that is pretty cool and rather clear. Now I'm conflicted if this is true or not. Perhaps it was the year it was built?
A meet up card from the Toronto meet came in and what a great view of the city this is! The cards were generously donated by one of the owners of the "papersisters" and another Canadian postcrosser donated stamps. Amazing!
