November RR - III

I've been receiving a lot of mail latelly but now i'm receiving mail twice a day :o That's weird but i like it :D

I don't have many cards from Australia, it's always great to receive something from there. This card was sent by "wildwood28".
"St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne, is the metropolitical and cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, Victoria in Australia. It is the seat of the Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne and Metropolitan of the Province of Victoria. The cathedral, which was built in stages, is a major Melbourne landmark.
St Paul's is built in a revival of the style known as Gothic transitional, being partly Early English and partly Decorated.
The Cathedral was consecrated on 22 January 1891, but the building of the spires did not begin until 1926." - in: wikipedia

This is my 1st sunflower card :) Sunflower is a common crop grown in Manitoba, Canada The cards was sent by Rose "phuleshouse".

Another card from Canada, this one sent by one of the GTKY girls :D Marie :D "renegade_cavalcade".
"The CN Tower, located in downtown Toronto, Canada, is a communications and observation tower standing 553.33 metres (1,815.4 ft) tall. On September 12, 2007, after holding the record for 31 years, the CN Tower was surpassed in height by the still-under-construction Burj Dubai. It remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Americas, the signature icon of Toronto's skyline, and a symbol of Canada, attracting more than two million international visitors annually.
CN originally referred to Canadian National, the railway company that built the tower. Following the railway's decision to divest non-core freight railway assets, prior to the company's privatization in 1995 it transferred the tower to the Canada Lands Company, a federal Crown corporation responsible for real estate development. Since local residents wished to retain the name CN Tower, the abbreviation is now said to expand to Canada's National Tower rather than the original Canadian National Tower; however, neither of these names are commonly used.

In 1995, the CN Tower was declared one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. It also belongs to the World Federation of Great Towers." - in: wikipedia
