Great Way To Send Cards To People In U.S. - I love sending greeting cards but the postage is so much more expensive sending to the US from MX. I was reminded the other day by my friend who uses Send Out Cards that I can simply create a card online and they will send an actual card, using my US address, to anyone else in the US for around $1 a card--including postage! I wish I had thought to share this with you earlier but she said that cards submitted by the 15th will still get there by Christmas. Let me know if you want more info on this or just click on the link I found. - Donna, onederc [- at -] juno.com, http://www.sendoutcards.com/keepsendingcards

Anyone Flying To Toronto Or Nearby Before Christmas? - I have a big favour to ask of you if you are flying up there - Would you be willing to include my family's Christmas cards with you and throw them in the mailbox when you arrive?

It would mean so much to me to be able to get my handmade painted cards to them this year! Email sweetsunday [- at -] gmail.com Thank You!
