When you get a call to say 2 A5 sized cards are needed by the next day... Thankfully inspiration came fairly easily and I was chuffed with the outcome of these cards, I can't say that always happens when I work under pressure! These cards were made for a clients Granchildren. A girly pink one with "twinkle" and butterflies and a card for a boy to represent his football team.

Well the first commission of they year was a biggen. A special leaving card for a man in a publishing company. My client wanted it to have the amount of time he had been at the company, and year est.1995 on it. The idea developed into a vintage style card. It grew from a small A6 size to a large A4 size for other people in the company to sign. Bigger cards like this prove a challenge as I don't have card in tick of that size. So... When it comes to large cards like this, I was able to adapt the idea to look like a book in order to use 2 different A4 pieces of card. Unfortunately the photo doesn't show up all the details and effect of the card, but I was pleased with the results.

Spent the day pricing and cataloging my stock for my impending Craft Sale! Each year I like to make up a DIY kit (aimed at the children). This year is a Snowman. The previous years have been a Christmas tree and Gingerbread man. A great way to introduce kids to simple crafts.
