Good Friday, y’all! Welcome to the last day of September! And, for a minute, it’s going to be Fall! It’s lovely here today!
Funny story. Well – not really funny ha-ha, more like funny you’ve-got-to-be-kidding-me!
Remember this card?
Right. Yesterday, I printed out my shipping label (gotta love Click-and-Ship from the Post Office). Then I carefully wrapped a little gift up in tissue, wrote my little note to my friend and his wife on my cute little card, and stuck it in my Small Flat Rate box. Then I zipped up to the mailbox and stuck it in there with a couple of other packages. Plenty of time for the post to run. Congratulating myself all the way.
Last night, as I was getting ready for bed, I happened to glance at the printer. On it was a USPS label.
To my friend. In Wisconsin. I stared at it stupidly for a moment, trying to figure out why there was a label to Len on the printer.
You already know – right?
Yup. I mailed the little box with no postage.
Or return address.
Nada. Zip. Zilch. Nutin’.
Which means they can’t even return it to me. I called the PO this morning. Unless my mail lady happens to have looked at it when she got back to the Post Office, and remembered where she’d picked it up, and remembered to put it in her truck this morning….my little box has gone to the dead letter office. Of which there is one. One. In the entire country!
My little box is sitting next to the thousands of letters to Santa and the Tooth Fairy. Probably never to be seen again. 🙁
Sigh….I guess I’ll give it a day or two and then re-make the card and try again!
My brain….what in the world!??!
For today, though, no duplicate card. Well…that’s not entirely true. You see, I made another card for my friend, this time a Get Well card. She just loves the Sitting Here stamp set and requests it every time! I’m maybe going to have to tell her it did a Note 7 on me…
Too soon? Sorry.
Anywho – I made her card with the Sitting Here swing (converted to a bench) and the dog in his bed. I added some Petals & Paisleys DSP and a couple of sentiments from the Greatest Greetings stamp set. Take a look-see:
