Default Postal ~ Summer Whipper Snapper and/or Penny Black Cards ~ Due July 16th

I am starting another Whipper Snapper Swap and Penny Black Swap. The theme is Summer!!! Are you eager for the warmer weather, great sunny days and time to enjoy the outdoors. Do you have a Whipper Snapper or Penny Black Stamp that showcases summer fun? If so, come and join us. And, as usual, there will also be prizes!!!!!!! Read down to see how to get a prize.....................

Description: Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment! If you make a size different than will fit into an A-2, please include an envie.

Quantity: 5+1 -You will not get one of your own back, so make an extra one for yourself! You will get back the cards made from the same company you sign up for--so if you want both kinds of cards back, sign up for both! Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take.

Vendor Products: Any stamp from Whipper Snapper or Penny Black is required. Please use very good quality cardstock (PTI/Gina K/SU). No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are encouraged, but not required. You can add a sentiment or leave it off--your choice!

Recipe: This is not required, but please put a sticky note or stamp your card with your signature, so everyone will know who to thank and who to leave a comment for!

Due Date: Wednesday, July 16th - I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! If I receive the swaps early, I will send them out early. Please post in the thread or send me a PM when your cards are postal.

Mailing instructions: Place swap cards in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper or the baggie for identification purposes. ALSO--please note on the baggie Whipper Snapper or Penny Black cards if you are in both swaps! I want to be sure to swap them out correctly.

Swap Return: Please include self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail to hostess. Please include 2 additional stamps to insure enough postage to return swaps. NOTE--please put your additional stamps in a small baggie or a postage holder or attach to a piece of paper--any of which work and please include your name. Additional postage will be returned if not used. If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5.60 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. Please note--if sending outside the US--Please send $8 US cash or stamps for one set of cards and $10 for two sets and even more money if you have three of more sets of cards to swap. I will return whatever is left to you.

Prizes: OK--this is how you can win some prizes in your return envie:
1--Sign up for three or more spots total in the groups below
2--Be the 25th or 50th name (or 75th ) to be added to the list
3--Other prizes will be added later during the chatter in this thread!

Please post or PM me with any questions.

Please mail swaps to:

with some Life Lessons Learned from Camping!




• Given a chance, matches will find a way to get wet.

• Your side of the tent is the side that leaks.

• All foods assume a uniform taste, texture, and color when freeze-dried.

• The weight in a backpack can never remain uniformly distributed.

• All tree branches in a forest grow outward from their respective trunks at exactly the height of your nose. If you are male, tree branches will also grow at groin height.

• You will lose the little toothpick in your Swiss Army knife as soon as you open the box.

Barbershop Quartet Day,

Enjoy your holiday(s) of choice today!






Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with some Life Lessons Learned from Camping!





• Rain.

• Enough dirt will get tracked into the tent on the first day out, that you can grow the food you need for the rest of the trip in rows between sleeping bags.

• Bears.

• The sun sets three-and-a-half times faster than normal when you’re trying to set up camp.

• Tents never come apart as easily when you’re leaving a site as when you’re trying to get them set up in the first place.

• When planning to take time off of work/school for your camping trip, always add an extra week, because when you get home from your “vacation” you’ll be too tired to go back for a week after.








FYI – There will be no Public Service Announcement tomorrow, as I am speaking at a Women’s Event. I’ll see you again on Monday. Have a FABULOUS weekend!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with a reminder to Choose Our Words CAREFULLY!






The story is told of a lady who was rather old-fashioned, always quite delicate and elegant, especially in her language. She and her husband were planning a week’s vacation in Florida, so she wrote to a particular campground asking for a reservation. She wanted to make sure the campground was fully equipped, but didn’t quite know how to ask about the toilet facilities. She just couldn’t bring herself to write the word “toilet” in her letter. After much deliberation, she finally came up with the old-fashioned term BATHROOM COMMODE. But when she wrote that down, she still thought she was being too forward. So she started all over again, rewrote the entire letter referring to the bathroom commode merely as the BC: “Does the campground have it’s own BC?” is what she actually wrote. Well, the campground owner wasn’t old-fashioned at all and when he got the letter, he just couldn’t figure out what the woman was talking about. That BC business really stumped him. After worrying about it for awhile, he showed the letter to several campers, but they couldn’t imagine what the lady meant either. So the campground owner, finally coming to the conclusion that the lady must be asking about the local Baptist Church, sat down and wrote the following reply:

Dear Madam:

I regret very much the delay in answering your letter, but I now take pleasure in informing you that a BC is located nine miles north of the campground and is capable of seating 250 people at one time. I admit it is quite a distance away, if you are in the habit of going regularly, but no doubt you will be pleased to know that a great number of people take their lunches along and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay late. It is such a beautiful facility and the acoustics are marvelous…even the normal delivery sounds can be heard. The last time my wife and I went was six years ago, and it was so crowded we had to stand up the whole time we were there. It may interest you to know that right now a supper is planned to raise money to buy more seats. They are going to hold it in the basement of the BC. I would like to say it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly, but it surely is no lack of desire on my part. As we grow old, it seems to be more of an effort, particularly in cold weather. If you do decide to come down to our campground, perhaps I could go with you the first time you go, sit with you, and introduce you to all the other folks. Remember, this is a friendly community.

Sincerely,
(Campground Owner)

Happy Tuesday and Tax Day!

We got snow yesterday and overnight--AND it is still on the ground! Temps are only to be in the 30's today, but the sun is out!

I got two sets of swap cards done yesterday and plan to get some DT cards created today. I hope you too have a crafty day!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Use Good Reasoning Skills!






Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal, they lay down for the night and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. Holmes said: “Watson, look up and tell me what you see”.

Watson said: “I see a fantastic panorama of countless stars”.

Holmes: “And what does that tell you?”

Watson pondered for a moment: “Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.”

“Why? – What does it tell you, Holmes?”

Holmes was silent for a moment then spoke: “Someone has stolen our tent.”

Good Morning--late check in for me as I had internet and phone issues. It is working now, but a TWC technician is coming out anyway to check on it.

Off to get a few things done in the stamp room!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Appear Calm and Walk Normally at ALL Times!






Pro tip: If you're going to smuggle heroin in your underwear, try to walk like a normal person while doing so. One man apparently couldn't manage that, so when Customs and Border Protection officers spotted him "walking awkwardly" at New York's JFK Airport, they patted him down—and found what ended up being two clear packages holding 1.79 pounds of heroin, according to US Homeland Security.

The man, a 42-year-old citizen of Trinidad and Tobago, was initially detained when he disembarked a Caribbean Airlines flight and appeared "visibly nervous," avoiding eye contact; customs officers were examining his suitcase at the time and they brought him to a private search room. That's when they noticed his gait and patted him down. The drugs he was allegedly carrying are worth more than $70,000 on the street, according to authorities. He faces 10 years in prison for drug smuggling.
