This first one has a quote I found, by Tom Hanks.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/21118/medium/1_Tom_Hanks_quote.jpg


This one is more whimsical. SUNNY The bird and the clouds are brads and really lay very flat. The background is actually corrugated decorative craft paper.

I will be ready to mail soon. I will pm you for your address. I was just reading the rules about mailing, as each host has different expectations. I am going to add extra postage for my cards, and even for any you want to send me, in case they are heavy.

Thanks for the address, I will get them out Tuesday, at the latest. Did you know that in August the USPS stopped making Saturday deliveries? The PO is still open, working hard, sorting mail etc, but they dont pick up outgoing mail nor deliver any 1st class mail. The still deliver priority on Saturday and Sunday. Or something close to that. I dont use the type, I am omitting. Express mail I believe.

I still get Saturday deliveries. Hmmm...

Are you sure?

Under five-day delivery, the Postal Service will no longer deliver mail to street addresses - residences or businesses - on Saturdays. Post Offices will remain open on Saturdays, though, to sell stamps and other postal products. Mail addressed to post office boxes will continue to be available Saturday

I just realized this was threatened in August of 2013. It didnt say, it was in place, it was explaining what the 5 day would look like. I have noticed I dont get mail on Saturdays and my flag up on mailbox gets ignored.

One Saturday I have my flag up and my mail didnt get taken, no new mail either. So that made me ponder the Saturday delivery.

I did get my cards, they were forwarded from my Phoenix address. I read that my forwarding is in effect for one year so that is good. all arrived in fine shape.

I got Key Lime pie cactus from Dracoanteres. I had to go look up that cactus to verify, what I was seeing. Now I am so impressed with her art and cactus. Thank you

From Plumhill I got a catcus with a map, and had Phoenix on the map, so that made my day.
From Suzi I got a die cut cactus and some stamps cacti. So nice.

Thanks all.
