Chernihiv, Ukraine

a great surprising card from my dear Ksenia, who has started her studies in Ukraine this semester, so unfortunately, i cant keep much track of her and what is she up to...but i hope she is ok


this card shows the Saint Assumption cathedral of Yieletsk Monastery from the 12 century.
Its a beautiful cathedral, and ive noticed that all Ukrainian sacred places are actually. And they al have some similar shapes in nice colours...here it is green for example...reminds me of the St. Sofia cathedral in Kyiv for example...

did i tell you that i am the Winner of The Month for October??!! yeahhh...after a week really scarce on mail, yesterday i found 5 great cards in my mailbox due to this win...in case you know what im talking about :)
i dont usually win things, so i was more than surprised to see that out of 20+ people, i was th chosen one...so yeah, yesterday was a great mail, thanks to this and a few other people who surprised me with their cards...they know who they are :P

 

the stamp is from the set of 7 definitives, issued in 2007, featuring art and antique objects.
