I love map cards and these Ideaman cards are especially nice. I just have a handful of them.
This one is of Maryland and has the State flag, the Oriole (state bird)
and the Black-Eyed Susan (state flower).
Love the crabs and all the other pictures on the card. So fun!
Thank you so much Erin for sending this great card.
An awesome addition for my collection.

This card is so cuuute! I just love it!
It came from Eliza and she sent it for the North America July Round Robin.
She went to a Postcrossing Meet Up in Grand Rapids, MI this month and sent it from there, along with signatures from some of the participants. How cool!
Thank you Eliza and to all the others, that signed my card.
I received this cute guy this month for the North America July Round Robin.
These "Did You Know?" cards are really great, because they're full of information and facts.
It says, that the Great Smokey Mountains National Park with its great variety of plants and animals, and its rich cultural heritage entice more people annually than any other in the United States.
Thanks to Nhigh for this great card. She knows that I love bears! How could one not?
He's so adorable!
This is an awesome card. It's a map card and lighthouses all in one, which I both love.
Here it shows all the locations of all the lighthouses on Cape Cod.
I also really like the border around the card with the fish, seashells and lobster.
My new postcard pen pal sent me this awesome card.
Thank you so much Karen.
I received this beautiful view of Chicago's skyline
for the North America July Round Robin
from MissMcFace. Thank you Megan!
The card says, that the Sears Tower, one of the tallest buildings in the world, is one of the most recognized buildings of the Chicago skyline.
I've only been to Chicago's O'Hare airport and unfortunately didn't get a chance to see the city.
I'd love to visit there and just stroll around and explore this beautiful city one day!

This card came this week from LizzyS for the June North American Round Robin.
It's a lovely view of the city.
Lizzy wrote, that Hamilton has a population of about 505,000.
Also there is a lot of green space there for running, walking, hiking trails, the beach and places to ride.
Sounds like a lovely place to live.
Thank you for the great card!
A lot of interesting and colorful stamps on this card.
I found this cool card this week in my mail box.
It's Postcrossing CN-1036247.
Thank you to Ann for sending it. I love it!
Ann wrote, that the bear is one of the characters in Russian fairy tales.
His name is Mihail Potapych and he's very big, strong, clumsy, but kind hearted and righteous.
I always find the Russian stamps as so beautiful and detailed.

I received these two adorable cards in a Private Swap from the Czech Republic.
I love any kind of bears and these guys are just too cute, aren't they?
Thank you so much Sarka!
This guy is a Steiff Bear, one of the oldest ones with a sealing-wax nose from 1902/03.
He looks like he's in good shape, considering he's over 100 years old.
Sarka wrote that she found this card in the Toy Museum in Prague and they have a big collection of
Steiff and otherTeddy Bears and also Barbie Dolls to see.
Oh, I'd love to visit there. That would be so much fun to see all the antique bears
and other collectible toys.
This is Bora in the Prague Zoo. How adorable is he?
I just love to go see the animals.
I haven't been to a zoo in soooo long!
And here are some new Nouvelles Images cards, which I also received in this private swap.
I love these type of cards and Sarka was so nice to send them to me.
Since I love pasta, this is a perfect card for me.
Love all the different types of pasta pictured on the card.
Hmm! Getting hungry, lol!
This one has so many different things, like spices, cookies, chocolates etc.
Each time I look at it, I find something else.
Couldn't really figure out the translation, but it looks like all kinds of delicacies from different places.
Really such a cool card.
These are the awesome stamps that were on the envelope.

I received another Postcrossing card from the Netherlands, NL-1280211.
Looking at this card, I just want to pack up and go on a trip.
Such a great, fun card.
Thank you to Liefke for sending this great card and for translating the saying.
'Ga je mee'? means 'Are you coming'?
Love the heart world stamp!

This is a funny card, but so true in a sense, lol. I mean, who likes to do housework? Not me!
I think it's a great card and I wanted to show it here.
I received this card for the North America June Round Robin
from Veeder. She saw it in my favorites and sent it to me.
How nice of her!
Thank you so much! I love it!
San Francisco is one of the nicest cities. I was lucky to visit there many years ago and I loved it.
There is so much to see and do. The cable cars, China town, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf and of course the Golden Gate Bridge are just some of the must-see places there. Wonderful restaurants and a great climate. I had the most amazing time. I really hope that some day I can go there again.
This card gives a great view of the city and it's great architecture.
Thank you to Vejoyce for sending me this beautiful card for the
North America June Round Robin.
One of my biggest loves are bears.
It makes me especially happy to find something with bears on it
in my mail box.
These brown bears are just so cute frolicking in the wild.
Just wanna go up to them and give 'em some snuggles, lol!
A big thank you to Lori, who always sends me the most amazing cards.
A new California map card. I love map cards and this one is so neat with all the little characters.
This map card shows all the different natural wonders in California, like the giant redwoods, Death Valley and of course Yosemite National Park, just to name some of them.
Thank you to Cruzin for sending me this awesome card for the North America June
Yeah, a new Moomin card. Isn't it cute? I love it!
I haven't sent any official cards on Postcrossing in a long time.
I'm not sure why exactly, probably because of being involved in Round Robins on the forum and Swap-bot and private swaps. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get some addresses and send out 3 or 4 cards and today I received this adorable one, FI-1457362.
A big thank you goes out to Erja for this cute card.
And take a look at this adorable Moomin stamp? Can't help, but love it!

I always like adding to my lighthouse collection.
This beautiful lighthouse is Florida's tallest lighthouse.
From the top you'll have a spectacular view of Daytona Beach and
the Ponce Inlet.
I'd love to visit there some day and climb to the top.
Thank you to Janila for sending this great card to me
for the North American April Round Robin.

How cute is this guy? I love bears and he is adorable.
This is a big black bear.
The card on the back says, that he pauses in a river and is patiently waiting for another fishing opportunity.
Needing to gain weight before winter hibernation, these generally non-aggressive bears can become dangerous and ornery, especially as they remain in areas increasingly frequented and populated by human beings.
Many years ago, when driving on a back road in the country at night, I saw one crossing the road.
Hard to believe!

This is a beautiful card. I love lighthouses and these are of West Michigan.
I'd love to visit them and climb to the top. It's such fun.
Unfortunately the postmark is covering some of the text on the card, and I'm not able to read the names of them all.
I received this great card from Choke for the January NA Round Robin.
Thank you so much!!!
I received this little guy for the January NA Round Robin.
This is a Dwarf Caiman. They are relatives of alligators and crocodiles. They rest during the day and come out at night to hunt for food in the water and on land for fish, crabs, snails and even giant beetles.
He's too cute!!!
I love this card and it's a great addition for my collection.
A big 'thank you' to Janila for sending this cool card to me.
