This year I made my beautiful hand stamped Christmas cards (all 40), signed them, put them in envelopes, added correct postage stamp and noted on each envelope "hand cancel" (because they had a button on the card and I didn't want the envelopes to get torn or mess up the postal service machine.

Next day TO MY SURPRISE all 40 cards are back in MY MAILBOX with a note "return for additional postage - 13 cent surcharge each"

I quickly got a marker and marked through the "hand stamp" and returned them to the postage box.

No wonder folks are sending ecards this year -- next year, I think I will send a photo of my Christmas cards!

Trying to be MERRY!
