I thought I would post the birthday card I made for a special friend in England last week! I mailed it in plenty of time as I wasn't sure how long it would take to get to England. I also wanted to be sure I had the correct postage on it. Unfortunately, I didn't drive downtown to our only post office when I mailed it. A couple of years ago, the postal authorities decided that closing all of our post office branches except the main post office downtown would save them money. They also closed our huge sorting center and decided that driving the mail 90 miles NORTH of us to Sioux Falls would be a fantastic money saving idea too! Unfortunately, for anyone wanting to mail anything, it wasn't! The interstate going north is usually closed at least once a winter because the road is too bad. Which means we get no mail on those days. We now have postal "sub-stations" located in several grocery stores where we are supposed to be able to mail our letters with store employees who have all been "trained!" Right! My beautiful birthday card came back to me Saturday while I was out of town & was waiting in the mailbox when I returned Sunday. They had slapped a huge sticker across the address stating there was $2.00 postage due! So much for getting it there on time! Grrrr!!!
Enough complaining! ha ha I've crossed my fingers & am hoping she gets it before her NEXT birthday!
Here is the card I made for her.
I used the beautiful Marianne Designs Anja's Oval Die for the central die and finished off the corners with one of the 3 dies in the Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco B set.
I'll be back tomorrow with something out of the ordinary for me! Stay tuned!!
