A covering letter was made .... this is the heading I did for the top.
2 are going to Canada, 2 to USA and 1 to England.
Forward thinking, I had purchased the envelopes, and obtained the customs declarations so everything was packed and ready to be sealed.
Usually at our Post Office the queue is through the shop and out of the doorway. But yesterday I was in luck about 3 people before me. And even more luck The Assistant was so helpful.
Yes she could stamp them for me
oh dear the ink was still wet
not to worry, we will weigh and put the stamps and record details. This done the ink was still damp,
by this time err a few more people were in the queue. But undeterred she continued to blow and wave them hoping the ink would dry. I asked if blotting paper might help next time. She thought it would but ahaha
she offered to go and get some paper towel and see if that would help. Now she took a long time, I think she was hoping that would give them more time to dry. Carefully blotting them with the towel she declared them dry..... by this time it was out of my hands.... no way was she going to spoil them.
This is one I have made for myself, as I intend to keep them as a set.
As this is the first Postcard I have made, I have learnt a lot as I went. For the next ones I will make the writing plainer and probably the word PostCard a bit smaller. If anyone has any ideas or help on this, they will be gratefully received.
And I have the next swap planned.
