Christmas Card failure

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.


  1. I think we've gotten maybe 10! I will send you one if you send me one! HAHA...just text me your address!!

  2. Well your not the only one that hasn't received many cards, and I said this year (and I will) if I did not get a card I will NOT be sending one out next year ha ha ...I keep a scrapbook with nothing but cards and I will be able to go back threw it :) Hope your CHRISTMAS cards turn out great.....Merry Christmas :)

  3. Oh. No!!!! I'm glad Shutterfly is going to redo the cards for you. And, I've not gotten as many cards this year as I usually do. I'm also not sending out as many as I have in the past (mainly because I lost my card list in a hard drive crash at the beginning of the year)
