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:

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!

    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

    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!!)

  6. says

    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!

    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?!

  9. says

    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!

    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!

  13. says

    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…
