Happier Day

I've shared this card all over the place today I might as well share it here as well, right? I made it for my friend's birthday. I ended up having to write in big fat Sharpie on the inside bottom (HB from Judy--very poetic words) since I didn't leave myself anywhere to write. I included the greeting on the back since I felt that was an important part of the card.



As you may have suspected these twist and pop cards are a bit thick. I put it in a smaller A2 envelope and put that in a bigger envelope. I then put 2 stamps on it. I was going to drop it in the PO drop box on the way to work but circumstances were such that I had the time to take it inside to check on postage. It would be kind of rude to send a birthday card postage due. They said due to its thickness it cost $2.67 to mail (on top of the postage already on the envelope) since it was considered a parcel. Well, now... I'm willing to bet if I had just dropped it on the drop box it would have gotten to its destination just fine on two stamps.

Mm really makes you cross re post, what makes me even crosser is when something posted takes three weeks to get here, and that's just in Oz not overseas post. 😐
Great work Judy, also love your Monday post bag collection too.
Thanks for sharing your inspiration!

Sometimes it doesn't pay to stand in line at the PO! On the other hand, it would have been a shame if she hadn't got this fantastic card!
