ecard -when it's not ok

I am personally a huge fan of ecards, they're free, they're quick and it looks like you care about someone when really you totally forgot about their, birthday, illness, wedding or birth of their child. 

Yep, I've sent ecards for all those reason.

However, it's not ok to send a twenty minute ecard.  Nope.

It's not ok to send a Jacquie Lawson ecard as an invitation for your 4 year olds birthday party. 


A Jacquie Lawson ecard is long, interactive and requires me to sit at my computer and click the damn fairy fifteen times just to find out the time and location of the birthday party.   


That's just the lastest thing that occured in my craptastic morning.

My daughter peed on the floor.
My dog tore up a diaper
My coffee maker wasn't working and it took 3 minutes to fix it, and when I did, I burnt my fingers.
It's cold out.
I'm still drowning in paper work.
And then I had to deal with a 20 minute E CARD!!!!!

I'm still debating if I should do a contest for my 75 followers. 


  1. Why would anyone want a 20 minute ecard? Really?

  2. I hate having to click through stuff like that.

  3. I'm sorry it's been a rough day. Hang on, let me send you an ecard to cheer you up. ;)

  4. Jaquie's ecards (also the similar artistic style ecards from have the "skip to end" functionality at the beginning of the ecards so you don't need to go through the whole thing.

  5. I've found that a lot of the time, people don't preview their e-cards, so they don't actually know how long the e-card is. Still, that must be really annoying - luckily, I've never had to deal with that.
