I’m trying to find the purrrfect Valentine’s Day Card and in the name of supporting artists and not buying a $5 card from my local Jean Coutu I’m checking out cards well in advance.  (and apparently writing like a cat…)

There’s some funny shit out there.

I’m not quite so sure why everything I write is profanity laced these days (wait until you see wednesday’s post!) but I’ll just ride the expletive-is-funny wave for a moment.

These cards are amazing but American Etsy sellers…. why oh why is the shipping cost to send a card to Canada a whopping $10?  Do you really think any sane person would accept this?  Please re-think your shipping fees and I will be happy to buy from you!

ps Do you still give cards or do you think it’s old fashioned?

    I have actually purchased and given that first card to my husband… (for our anniversary and not Valentine’s day…but they’re both in February). I seem to remember the shipping only being a few dollars. Which was still a huge percentage of the card, but better than $10!

      Heya – too funny! It’s a great card!

      I don’t know if all the sellers charged $10 but I know one of them did. I actually bought a whole stack of cards from an American Etsy seller – the first one had quite expensive charges but the rest were only 0.20 per card. If I don’t get charged duty (fingers crossed!) it will work out to around $5 per card – which is roughly on par with what you’d pay for a Hallmark card plus all our ridiculous taxes in QC.
