Business Casual Friday

Can you tell I think this is the boring part?

This box did not have my name on it, but what is inside is for me! Can you guess what it is?

I didn't find this part all that interesting either

It is business cards that my human made up for me for BlogPaws! She does have her own cards, but they are not very interesting, and besides she is not the important one at this conference. She is attending as my personal representative (since I am staying home), so she needed cards with my info. Let’s see how she did.

I think they smell better than they look

They are not bad. There are a couple of picky things I could complain about (like when is she going to learn how to do better photo crops of me?), but they work okay and I like the fonts.

Here is the front close up:

My human had to adjust the colors after converting it to RGB to post on the blog

And here is the back:

My image on this side was cropped by a PROFESSIONAL

There was only one problem with this order. Can you guess what it is?

Doubling or tripling the order might have sufficed

That’s right — my human did not order enough! If she had placed a bigger order, then they would have come in a decent-sized box.

  • The packers could have used more packing to ensure a bigger box,
    and yes, you should have gotten a bigger box.
    You still might have fun as you watch Binga try to fit herself into that box!
    Those cards are very nice too !

  • Great cards! You’re petite enough to sit in the box, but it could be bigger … Have a great Friday!

  • You can make it work, Miss Sparkle!

  • They’re pawsome Sparkle, but we agree, they need to come in a bigger box.

  • Those cards are great! We think you could manage to get into that box with a little maneuvering!

  • What a disappointing box Sparkle – you’ll have to get your staff better organised!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  • Those cards really are nice. Sparkle, you can get in that box. We know you can. Have a super week end.

  • Those cards are great, Sparkle. Our mom is excited that she’s going to BlogPaws and will get to meet your human. She ordered cards for us. They’re pretty simple design, but y’know what?? She didn’t order enough either!!

  • Those are cool cards, just like you, beautiful Sparkle, but we knew that box was just for you, sweetie!…Have a fun weekend, precious friends…xoxo…Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat

  • We love your cards! We think your mom did a great job. No box is too small for us kitties.

  • those are MUCH better than the ones mom ordered for us…..

    we think that box MAY just be the right size to shove Binga in and send her somewhere (no – not here!!)

  • How inconsiderate of her to NOT order enough cards to provide a box-bed for you! Well, you’re so petite I bet you COULD wedge yourself into that box but why wedge when with an appropriately sized box you could lounge?! At least the cards turned out nicely!

  • Woo hoo Sparkle! Great Biz cards! I am gonna make sure Mom gets one for me!

  • Those are very nice cards, Miss S.

    hope everee one haza grate week oh end :grin:

  • Oh very nice business cards! You go! Maybe next year again for us but so much happening and so little money and more focus on other writing (as if that’s worthwhile!) than on me–can you imagine?!

  • ah yes, the all important box..

    sometimes a small box is good though.. consider it a challenge.

  • Sparkle, your cards are wonderful! AND, I’m pretty sure a petite girl like you can fit into that cozy little box with no trouble at all!

  • I wish I could go to BlogPaws but I am not allowed to fly first class. I think is very wrong. I am a FAMOUS SpokesGoat and I do NOT belong in with the luggage!

  • Sparkle those are super fantastic cards, and we bet they will all be gone when your human goes to Blog Paws!

  • That wasn’t very smart of her to not order enough to get a bigger box but she did help you get really cool cards! We love them!

  • Have a nice weekend!

  • Wy would somebody send such a small box?!?!

  • It’s very cool to have your own cards, Sparkle! And they are rather flashy!

    The Chans

  • They look quite spiffing, Sparkle! Mum is green with envy as she would love to go to Blogpaws!! xx

  • I wish I got fun stuff like that in the mail.

  • Love those cards. Wish mine could look that good.

  • Well Sparkle, humans, as we know all too well, are not purrfect, but we give her credit for some very nice business cards. They are very purrfessional looking. You must have had some input on the design Sparkle. As far as the cropping, whiskers such as yours , which are very long and lovely, are very difficult to properly crop. We’ll cut her a little slack this time. But tell her to practice before the next batch.

    Tsk, tsk, tsssssskkkk! Once again Sparkle mewz human falls short. The cards are pawsome, but we all know mew had a paw in that so that’s why they turned out purrfect. The box situation is not simply some little oversight- mewz human has broken one of the top ten human-service-to-cat rules: Always provide adequate amount of boxes in size and shape. HOW can one forget the importance of such an issue? Does she not care how much mewz weekend was ruined by this act?
    Quick action MUST be taken my furiend, do not spare the paw- mew will regret it later if she starts ignoring the rules and mewz instructions!
    I know mew will be a big hit as usual at BlogPaws, yet for mewz reputation’s sake start the training review and performance rehearsals now so mewz human doesn’t screw that up too. :mrgreen:
    Smooches to mew, Binga, and Boodie

    PS- Embarrassing as this is, my human has begged me to ask mew if mew would ever let her bury her face in mewz beautiful furs and rub mewz belleh? *turns red, mortified by blubbering human’s SQUEE! behavior*

  • Dear Sparkle
    mes thinks that box would bes purrfect for yous and me as wes is tiny, an escape from our bratty siblings who would NEVER ECER fits their more enormous behinds in the box!

  • Hey Sparkle, you’ve got your own cards !!! That’s great ! We’re not as lucky as you are : Mum said the a purrsonal blog, an e-mail, and a Twitter account is enough…

  • We love your cards Sparkle, they are really great! Your Human did a fantastic job!

  • I’m pretty sure if you try hard you can fit in the box. Those cards look very nice.

  • Typical humans to order to small boxes *sigh*
    I see that your mom have ordered your buisiness cards from the same place I do :)
