pricey but very cute! I like the one that says when you feel alone in there remember my love is in there with you. Love it! Its $10 for two cards shipped to me so $5 a card. Not horribly bad but a little pricey.

Some of those are FUNNY. I wish I could get him the I put money on your books now your my b*tch one but I think the jail here would refuse it... they are very picky

I'm FOR SURE ordering some stamps that say Happy Birthday XXXX and "35!" Haha, but not until September. You know you can never guarantee your card and stuff will make it on the right day, this way he will have Happy Birthday mail all month I'll let you know if I get all mushy or creative earlier than that, lol.

I've placed many orders with the company!! I LOVE THEM!!!!

The stuff always arrives very quickly (I usually do stamps) and all 3 places I've sent things in to have had no problem with any of them.

I just bought a set of personalized postcard stamps, handfuls of postcards and a few other little gift things.... If you look at other items they aren't too bad on their price.

I also added coupon codes!

10% off each Item: 10ZAZZLESAVE
Free Shipping on Orders $10 and up: SHIPTHANKS10

I have been looking all over the internet for some printable cards, but all the ones I have found have been only for use in email... Anyone know of any good sites?? Thanks!

Okay, so here is what I am going to do next week. I am going to tie a big yellow ribbon around the tree out in front of our house, and then write out the lyrics to "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" and take a picture of the tree with the ribbon and send them to her.

For those of you that may not be familiar with the song, here are the lyrics:

"Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree"

(As recorded by Tony Orlando & Dawn)
IRWIN LEVINE
L. RUSSELL BROWN

I'm comin' home I've done my time
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine
If you received my letter tellin' you I'd soon be free
Then you'll know just what to do if you still want me
If you still want me.

Woah tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
It's been three long years, do ya still want me
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree

Bus driver please look for me
'Cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison and my love she holds the key
A simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free
I wrote and told her, please

Woah tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
It's been three long years do ya still want me
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree

Now the whole damn bus is cheering
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons round the ole oak tree

I'm comin home, mmm hmm

Tie a ribbon round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon round the ole oak tree

Tie a ribbon round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon round the ole oak tree

Okay, so here is a link to the video and lyrics to the song "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" - what I am going to do is get a big yellow ribbon and put it around the tree in front of our house - then take a picture of it, then print it out in color on the bottom left of an otherwise blank piece of paper, and then hand-write the lyrics for her!

Here is a link - the 'embedding' won't work, but you can click on it to watch it on YouTube:

Default How to make postcards out of your pics!

I found a website called The2buds.com where u can buy postcard backing and send ur own pics as postcards. I thought it was a cute idea so I wanted to share. I went on the site and they start at 10 for $4 which isn't bad but it was another $4 for shipping. I'm going to look for some at the craft store!

well, it's probably already been done, but I made up a word search with words about my boyfriend and I and how I feel about him and sent it to him. He liked the idea, completed the puzzle in about three days, and returned it to me with his next letter asking if I wouldn't mind sending more. lol
