    some people put their postcards in a regular envelope to mail.
    i put mine in a plastic see-thru envelope with a 70 cent stamp and have the p.o. hand cancel it.
    you have the whole month to mail your postcard.

    I'm in! I think I have my card picked out. A little bit of a story behind it, I'll share after it is received.

    Do you post pictures when you are finished?
    Or do you wait until your swap partner receives it?

    Sign me up again. My cousin in Maryland asked to help her make a postcard over Labor Day weekend so will make it with her. Thanks.

    I keep see-sawing back and forth, but what the heck, I'm in for September since I spotted a holiday that speaks to me!

    Pm'd my partner. For no reason at all, I get the feeling we've picked the same holiday. I don't know why. Time will tell!
