The girls at work asked me if I would make a card for our boss for bosses day which is sometime in October. This is the card I came up with. I made it square so there would be more room for all of us to write a little something on the inside. I hardly ever make square cards for a couple of reasons. It's difficult to find square envelopes and postage costs more. Which brings me to a little gripe about the USPS. Yesterday I had to mail a package and since the "letter carrier" had already come and gone I decided to mail a thank you card I had made along with the package. The card already had a stamp on it and when the postal worker picked it up she said, "oh, it's a little lumpy." That will be a 20 cent SURCHARGE. To which I said, "what???" It already has a stamp on it why the surcharge? She replied, "it's a little lumpy." (insert evil postal worker stare here) It was a card I made with NO embellishments, one layer of bg paper and ONE sentiment with ONE 1/16th inch piece of foam tape. GRRRR! What I wanted to say was, "You're a little lumpy! And don't you know card makers help to keep you employed?" We NEVER send e-cards and we are already paying 44 cents to mail each "standard size" card and an extra 58 cents to mail a square card. I mail tons of cards this way from my house and nobody has ever called me to say thanks for the card and oh by the way, I had to pay a 20 cent surcharge to get the card. If I make a truly bulky card, I put extra postage on it, but this what a bit ridiculous.
Ok, I feel better now. Thanks for listening.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
