Cards are difficult for me. As someone who spends a lot of their day designing invites and cards, I'm pretty picky when it comes to picking them out. And no, I really don't want to spend hours designing one after work most of the time. I love design, but there is a line of how much time I should spend in Adobe products before I go nuts. Anyhow, I loved that I could add photos and personalize Cardstore.com cards, so I agreed to a review since Becki's bridal shower was quickly approaching, and I hadn't even managed to find a gift yet. Instead of a bridal shower one, I chose a card in the 'friendship' section since the sentiment I wanted to share was more about that.
The card I chose came quickly (thank goodness!) and arrived in plenty of time for me to carry it in my purse for about a week, planning what to write. Held up pretty well for a week in my purse, right! Well, needless to say, Becki loved the card. It definitely felt like more of a gift than a throw-away card because it was custom and not something I picked up on a whim. I rarely buy cards anymore, and when I do, I prefer them to have photos anyway. I enjoyed the print quality of these so much, I'll be sure to order again.
After the bridal shower, Becki and I ran a few errands, found a veil (!!!), and ate at Hofbrauhaus. In the smallest amount of light possible, we shot a few outfit photos on the purple people bridge down in Newport. It was a great day, full of good girl time I've been needing desperately lately.
