Today is the day for my Groot card. I had Staples make me copies of the image as my copier wasn’t delivering crisp results like I wanted for the card. I forgot to bring my own card stock that would definitely have been better than theirs even though I was going to use Georgia Pacific cardstock from Walmart. I think the Staples employee told me they use a 40+ grade of cardstock which I didn’t even know existed. I’m a little bit worried about the sturdiness of the paper, but am willing to give it a try. The worker was willing to try making the image darker and lighter and gave me all of the “samples” she made, which was really nice of her. At this point, I’m not sure if their copier is that great, because I expected miracles and didn’t get them. Is there a chance my standards are a little too high? Maybe. I thought I’d get these really crisp images in colors that were almost unbelievable. Huh, that might be a little bit of a stretch from someone who looked like she learned how to use their copier a couple of days ago, although, to her credit, she had mastered the light/dark button.
I’m going to make the card and it’s going to be fabulous. Now all I have to do is think of a reason someone would want a baby Groot card. It’s not like I have little kids to give cards to and I’m not sure if others will understand the saying “I am Groot” as apparently that’s all he says. I thought it would be funny to write that on the outside and on the inside of the card, write the translation. I might just use “thinking of you” as my translation, because otherwise, it might not work for “happy graduation.” It could be a stretch but I’m going with it. After all, I am Groot, which means “I’m screwed.”
