I was randomly picked by a fellow sendsomething user from
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
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.
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.
