Let's start with the card from Russia. It's from Sofia in Moscow. Her card is a picture of a page or the cover of an
Sofia used 2 lovely , large stamps on her card. The one on the left was issued in 2004, 1 of 4 in a set featuring Silver Art. What I like about this stamp , and I guess the other 3 in the set is it is what I call embossed. The image and outline of the goblet or vase is raised, you can feel the shape if you run your finger over it. The other stamp is 1 of 4 in a 2012 set commemorating the upcoming 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
My second card comes from The United Nations in New York City. It showcases a number of sights around the city. It is compliments of a Postcrosser, Stanislav from the Czech Republic who was vacationing in the big city.
Stanislav used 2 UN stamps. The large one on the right was issued in 2012, 1 of 2 in a set marking World Heritage in Africa.
Tena used a nice selection of stamps on this card. In addition to the small flower stamps , we see 2 large stamps showing different types of railway cars. They were issued this current year , March 27th, in a set of 4 , a nice set actually.
That's it for this time, another short update, maybe that's the way to go. It seems to work for many other bloggers.As always, comments welcome.
