My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

16 November 2010

A Special Card

Good morning folks - well how cold is it today!?  I walked my daughter to school just before 8.00 am this morning as she has gym and it was sooooo cold, frosty and misty.  I am not liking this weather at all.

Now my card today is a commission from my Cousin for her daughter, who will be 9 in December.  I'm going to enter it into the following challenges:-

I've used an 8" x 8" gatefold card - the camera hasn't picked up the bright pinkness of the card unfortunately, but you get the gist.

Card Ingredients:-
  • Urban Belles Stamp
  • Kanban Cardstock
  • PM Gems
  • Promarkers
  • Kanban Die Cut Numbers & Letters
  • Kanban Mirri Card
  • Nesties
  • Ribbon from Stash
I always find commissioned cards a little tricky, even though you get a brief of what they like, you never know if they are going to like them.  Although I don't know why I worry so much, as have made loads of commissions and everyone has loved them LOL!

Anyway would love to have your comments on what you think, as they always mean alot.  I hope you have a good day and the weather is a bit better where you are today.
