Swapping with Postal Society

Yesterday I received this great envelope from a swap
on Postal Society. 

Maraia also included these goodies

Looks a bit like a treasure no?

Supporting a good cause

My mom and I went to an "open house" day from an animal shelter,
to support them we bought tickets for some kind of lottery. 
We won two prices, including this paper! Lucky!

Shame on me, I forgot to post this amazing card and 
cute mini envelopes which I won on facebook.

Trying a new type of card

Although I need to practise some more to get 
a better result, for a first time, it doesn't look that bad.

And the card will travel in this envelope...

A postcard from South Africa!

I was randomly picked by a fellow sendsomething user from
South Africa! 

She sent me this lovely flower field

And used the 3D dinosaur stamp (set of 10, 2009)
This set of self-adhesive dinosaur stamps is the first ever with a 3D effect to be issued by the South African Post Office.
The stamps were illustrated by Chantelle Basson, a second-year Graphic Design student at the Open Window Academy in Pretoria. Five of the stamps depict skeletons of different types of dinosaurs, while the other five stamps show images of what scientists believe these creatures most probably looked like. All the dinosaurs depicted on the stamps have an African connection.

Back from my vacation, time to show my mail

This postcard came all the way from India,
from the Postcrossing Meet up in Bangalore

This postcard comes from Pärnu, Estonia

Stamp issued 2013

And last but not least, several lovely ladies sent me stamps!

From the USA

From Canada

From Germany

I'll show the stamps better in other posts!

Postcards and stamps from Malta and Czech Republic

I got this postcard from the Czech Republic with matching stamps.

This beautiful castle is called Cervena Lhota

The stamp on the right shows the Chapel of the Holy Trinity,
which as you can see on the stamp in UNESCO WHS

I guess you can say I received this card from Malta for a very strange reason. 
The sender of this card, a fellow postcrosser, said that she got complaints about the stamps, 
which are never cancelled when she put the cards in the mailbox. To get the stamps
cancelled she has to go to the postoffice, wait in line and ask the staff to cancell
all the stamps. 
So I wrote a comment, that I thought she put a lot of effort in making people happy,
which is amazing, but that Postcrossing is about the postcards, not the stamps. And if she ever had to send me a card, she could just put it in the mailbox. 

Because I was the first to respond to her message,
she sent me this card and guess what, the stamp isn't cancelled.
The stamp (2014) commemorates the tenth anniversary of Malta's accession to the European Union. The stamp was designed by MaltaPost and depicts the Maltese national flag beside the flag of the European Union.
