Hi Peoples!

So ... I'm going to share my dumbassery so everyone else learns from it 😂🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

I didn't know USPS determined shipping by packaging.
I thought as long as the envie was less than 1/2' thick and under an ounce it could get one or maybe two stamps.
Hard No.
I shipped a few trades in little bubble wrap envelopes thinking these magical postage stamp thoughts.
One came back and has been resent.
This one (Praise the ATC Gods) was delivered.
I'm still waiting to hear about the other one.

Lesson: ONLY CARD or BUSINESS envelopes. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Also ... if you didn't know, regular return address labels can't be used as mailing labels too. I had no clue 🤦🏼‍♀️

Learn something new every day!

Thanks Jez for making this a little easier.
@LindyLu you are living LARGE! ;)
I’m teasing a little, but actually, I like it. Your cards appear just about life size on my screen.
Thank you for sharing your art in the thread and for the shipping update.
Oh, I know what I did. I should have checked 'thumbnail'.
I wonder if I can (or should) delete that post???? I could re-post with smaller pics.
LindyLu - this site is full of surprises, isn't it. I am still having weird things happen and I wonder what caused it. I just delete and start over.
I checked the gallery & I put the correct size in there. I think I'll leave the thread pics alone & just make note of a lesson learned.:)

@LindyLu, don’t worry about it. It is fine the way it is. ;)

FYI, if you ever need to, you can change or delete posts using the “Edit” or “Delete” buttons below your post.
My cards for the swap will be mailed out today.:)View attachment 786192
I really like all of these, but especially the on that says Own Your Dreams. What did you use to make that red background? I really like the way it looks and as someone who hasn’t really done mixed media, but wants to, I’m interested in different ways of doing things.
Here are my cards for this swap. I just finished them up this morning. I still need to put my info on the back and get them ready for mailing, but they will be in the mail within the next day or two.

Looking good @les342. I’m getting some Keith Haring vibes from the red one.
Thanks for sharing your art in the thread.
