Christmas card

One of R's sister's sent us this card. Our three cards from England were all excellent. So much nicer than the ones we get here.

  1. Nice cards can be had - you just have to a) know where to find them and b) be prepared to pay several $$ each instead of 20c from the Reject Shop!!

  2. yeah the Brits do good cards, I noticed that too and we always used to get really good ones from our rellos.

  3. Dearest Red,I have never sent you a Reject shop card. Gay men only send cards of quality.

    Fen, I wonder if R's Brit rels send cards between themselves. And if so, would they be quality cards like they send us?

  4. Well, I know from when I was living there that you mostly got the lower quality ones and the ones people sent overseas were a special, more expensive purchase. To be honest I've never looked to see if there's really good quality ones here, maybe there are.

    I agree. We got some gorgeous cards, the best were from Germany from the kids' Au Pair's. 3D, pop out scenery, the lot. Just beautiful :)

  6. I love the card's specificity!

    Cazzie? your children have an au pair?

  7. Just a pity that the bear on the right appears (to me) to be female.

  8. Good Fen. Quality cards for overseas but not locally.

    Cazzie, it does seem to be a Euro tradition.

    Had Emstacks. She went home a good while ago. Very specific, but as Victor says, possibly for a male and female.

    I didn't even look Victor.

  9. Haha! Yeah I know about gay men and cards of quality - but not from you (unless I missed the kind card you sent ...)! And I guess if you're going to all the trouble to send a card O/S, you'd WANT to be picking out a corker! So maybe the evidence is skewed??!!

  10. Succinctly put Red. Poor evidence.

  11. Coming from England and all, BF's regular lament is that we have sucky cards over here. I'm resorting to buying custom made cards from MoonPig these days.

  12. I'm not sure who the company was Mirebella, but one of the English sister's sent a personalised card with our names on it.
