On Monday I ordered Christmas cards from a certain online photo center using these two exact pictures in a two photo collage.
Today, I received the cards in the mail and they looked like this:
Um...Anything seem off to you? The color? The dark and dreary quality?
Yeah me too.
Oh and see that reddish part on the side. It's part of the design. A design that is called"Red Holly Leaves". I am guessing because online it has red holly leaves. Not on my card though. I am calling my card "Rust Imagine-the-Holly Leaves." Maybe the leaves are like one of those optical illusion paintings. If I stare at it long enough, they will suddenly appear. In 3-D
I am starting to get a feeling that a decent Christmas Card is not in God's plans for me this year.
In fairness to the online photo service, I have just ended a 30 minute long phone call with a very nice woman, who spoke very marginal English, in their customer service department. After emailing her this picture (a version that included the missing Holly part) she finally admitted that their may have been an error in their printing process and is overnighting me a new shipment.
It's possible that tomorrow I will receive much-improved cards and we will be all kissy kissy again.
