I'm In Shock !

If you haven't tried to mail one of your creations lately you're in for a BIG shock. I took a card to the post office today and was informed that because it had four small brads on it (they showed through the envelope) that it would cost an extra 17 cents for a total of 58 cents. So, for those of you who don't already know if you put embellishments on your card it is going to cost an extra 17 cents to mail. The reason for this is because they can't send it through the machine that post marks it, they have to do it by hand. So needless to say, my Christmas Cards this year will be embellishment free........I haven't had time to do any stamping so today I thought I would share some ATC's I made a while back. These were for a Bella Swap and the only one I have is the Stamper Bella. I paper pieced the dress and colored the rest using a Blender Pen....Thanks for looking!

oh yeah, I know about the extra postage, found out after several of my cards never showed up, guess they threw them in the trash. I always put a regular stamp and then a postcard stamp on my cards with brads or big ribbon.
