This breathtaking view is of Lushan National Park in China and a UNESCO World Heritage site. I like how the fog lingers below. It's a great card. I received this beautiful card for the July RR. Thank you so much to neonhex for sending it.

Really pretty stamps too, especially the one on the right, so colorful.

Animals of the North, Finland

This awesome card came from Finland for the July RR. I love this card! Thank you so much to Annimanni for taking time to look through my favorites and sending me this cool card.
She writes that in Lapland one is most likely to see the moose or the reindeer, but the others are vulnerable or endangered, which is quite sad.

It came with this really pretty Aurora borealis stamp. Unfortunately it wasn't postmarked.

The Great Lakes

The Great Lakes are located between the United States and Canada. They consist of 5 lakes as seen on the map and are the largest group of freshwater lakes on earth. Sometimes called the North Coast by Americans. They hold 20 % of the world's surface fresh water. (Source wikipedia)

I received this great map card for the July RR. Thank you Ange for this nice addition to my map collection.

These lighthouses are all located around the Great Lakes. I just love this card and I want to thank choke for sending me this beautiful card for the North American July RR.

Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain

This beautiful map card is of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands. I love map cards and this is a really great one added to my collection.

It came from Brian, who spent his holiday there. He sent it to me for the June RR. Many thanks to you Brian for this awesome card.:)

A great stamp about the Astronomy Center.

Petra, Jordan

Wow, my very 1st card from Jordan. I was so excited to add another country to my collection. Even though the card itself wasn't sent from there, it's still really special.
This great card came from Pinar. She says, that she only had a short stay there and unfortunately didn't see as much, as she would have liked to. :(
Thank you so very much for sending me this beautiful card.:)

Petra, is a UNESCO World Heritage Sight and it's one of the most spectacular tourist attractions in Jordan. The card shows 'The Garden Temple'.

The card was sent from Turkey and has some awesome looking stamps and the one on the right is quite huge.

More Moomins

Yeah, some more Moomin cards. I love them and am always happy to find them in my mail box. They're just sooo cute and bring a smile to my face. My collections is slowly growing:)

This one came from Finland for the June RR. Many thanks to Ari for sending it my way. I love it!

A really nice stamp, that wasn't postmarked. I think Finland has some beautiful stamps.

This one came all the way from Malaysia from Anis, who loves Moomins too and sent me one for the April RR. Thank you so much!

Here you clearly can see the postmark, but it did cover the stamp a bit.
