After being SO excited and waiting for SO long for my Christmas Cards to get here from Shutterfly, I opened them up – and they were messed up. Y’all, I cried SO hard over it. I guess it was my mistake, and I felt like a complete idiot for messing up such cute, perfect, (FREE) Christmas Cards.
The outside looked perfect, but when you opened it up, it read,
we wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year!
with love from the
NOTHING was capitalized – which wouldn’t have been a big deal, except for Christmas, because it should ALWAYS be capitalized. and then our last name was left off.
I have a feeling I know how it happened. I made several different versions of the card, with different pictures, and then Stephen helped me choose the final version, I clicked ORDER and paid for shipping and went on my merry little way. I’m guessing that when I made a new version of the card, I just worried about the pics, not the wording of the card. Anyway, it was a big mess and I thought our cards were ruined, and I had no idea what I was going to do because my heart was SO set on this particular card.
So, my sweet hubby called Shutterfly customer support and talked to them, and if you aren’t completely satisfied with your order, they give you a credit on your account so that you can order new ones! So I received a credit for 50 cards and reordered them right away, and they should be in tomorrow. I hate getting out Christmas Cards so late, but I’m just happy that they are the super sweet adorable cards that I had my heart set on.
Speaking of Christmas Cards – I’ve only received FOUR this year. ??? What’s up with that? I’m sending out over thirty-five. I said last year that I wouldn’t waste the time/money on Christmas Cards this year, and that I would only be sending out to those who sent to me… but oh, well. My cards were free (less shipping. twice.) and I made envelope labels so that I didn’t have to spend an hour addressing them by hand. I just don’t understand all the Grinches and their lack of Christmas Spirit.
