Mine is laying here all taped up in it's envelope ready for me to trot on down to the post office and get some postage so it goes straight to Far North instead of coming back for more stamps.......Have I ever talked about my dislike of my post office?  They gleefully send back my homemade cards for more postage on a fairly regular basis......
You know it's been a good day when I haven't released the flying monkeys.......

That's just rotten!

I put some extra postage on mine today because it was a little lumpy.  It's on it's way to LeighAnn!
Looking forward to receiving Jan's.  The deadline kind of snuck up on me this month, but I had fun with the requirements.

I am sorry that my ATC did not go out by today.  It is finished and I will get it sent asap.

I got happy mail today.  I love both the ATCs you sent me Yankee.  And the sentiment on the card made me smile.

Great ATC, Kathy!

Mine went out yesterday. I'm so sorry it went late, Sadie :(

I've had issues before with postage. It's aggravating! I don't remember if it was someone here or someone at the post office that suggested using postcard stamps with your regular stamps for bulky cards. I've done that In the past and haven't had issues. Plus it's cheaper than putting to regular stamps on it.

I might be the one who spoke about post card stamps. I used to just add two stamps to anything that was remotely bulky, but that was getting expensive so that is when I got the post card stamps. I have not had anything sent back ever.

However, a relative had to send DS's book back to use recently, and they put it in a regular envelope with only 3 stamps on it, and it did arrive without asking for more postage.  However, it took them 2-3 weeks to deliver it (usually takes 2 days).  That really should have been $2.30 at least for package postage, so YMMV. 

Sending ATC's is costing me far less than sending tags was.

Wow, SWLady that arrived fast.  I only sent it out on Monday and it had to travel across country. I'm surprised.  I'll go post the pic.
