Late, late last night ( I mean I was already on the way to bed)I was thinking about some post cards, and Bingo! The idea hit me to put them on the FRONT of the post cards. So making a quick detour I ended up digging everything out and started to glue this stamps onto PCs. They are all pretty old and I was afraid the lick'em stuff wasn't any good. Now filling a post card size space takes quite a few stamps, and I'm having a gay ole time just stick'em down. Then I get to noticing a lot of these are old US postage stamps that have never be used...........WOOOOOOAH! Do these things ever expire? So I set aside the rest of the US postage ones and continued with what was left and adding some that had been canceled.
This morning I ran down to the post office and asked my friend Mandy if they expire and how many can you put on a PC or envy. Her answer: "Nope they do not expire and you can put as many as you want that equals the postage rate, as long as there is room for the address". So in the picture are little piles of postage stamps that equal 34 cents (what it takes for a post card.........I'd forgotten they were less expensive to mail)
Now dummy me, I see that there is one post card that already has enough postage GLUED to the FRONT to make the 34 cent postage. Live and LEARN, at least this lesson only cost me less than a dollar in postage stamps.......BUT look how pretty the cards turned out.....and I even got to use my new die from Die-namics............VERY BIG GRIN!!!
So check out any old stamps you might have to see if they can still be used. I did do a little intranet searching last night, and there is one 4 cent stamp that might be worth more than face value. With my luck it is probably only worth 5 cents now...........LOL
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a message so I can return the favor.
