I have two new map cards from Colorado, plus a bonus card of Denver!

USA-COmap2 USA-COmap3

These first two cards are from my dad. He sent them when he was in Colorado for work. Colorado is also known as the Centennial State, I assume because it became a state in 1876, 100 years after the USA declared independence.


This card shows Denver, the capital of Colorado. Denver is also the biggest city in Colorado. It is also one of the highest cities in the United States; the official elevation is 5,280 feet (1,609 meters) above sea level. This card comes as an official Postcrossing card.

The cards came with some new stamps from 2013-14:

USA-flower1 USA-flower2

The flowers are new this year, from a series called “Winter Flowers” released February 14, 2014.USA-gingerbread

And this stamp is from a series of gingerbread houses released in 2013 for Christmas and the holidays.
