A bit of whimsy

The Postal Service will release its Thinking of You stamps on Aug. 11.

The stamps come in five designs featuring whimsical images, including flowers, balloons, cute animals, sweet treats and symbols of good luck.

The pane also has die-cut stickers that can be used to decorate envelopes and stationery.

Greg Breeding, an art director for USPS, designed the stamps with original artwork by Ellen Surrey.

The Forever stamps will be available in panes of 20 at Post Offices and usps.com.
