This is one of the first 'handmade' cards I've received through Postcrossing. It's pretty cool as the postcrosser's mom took the photograph. It shows the city of New Haven in Connecticut taken from the top of East Rock. New Haven is perhaps best known for Yale University, the third oldest university in the US.
She also used a custom stamp, which I have heard about but had never seen before. I know you can get them through places like Zazzle, though of course they cost a bit more than regular stamps. I've thought about trying my hand at them, but can't quite decide whether to do it or not. In any case, I do love the image that was used.
