I did mention on several occasions that I am in the process of completing my 50-State map cards collection. I am actually making slow progress but nevertheless, I am loving every map that comes my way.
Recently one of my swap mates posted this lovely New York map card on here Facebook timeline. I loved it + asked her if she can help me get one of my own. I was so delighted when her friend agreed to send me one in exchange for a Philippine map card.
I got my card a few weeks ago + it really made my day! It features some to the famous attraction found in the State, including Lake George, Catskill Mountains, + the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
