  29. Your friend will be thrilled with this Claire :) Really stylish for a male card, monochrome always hits the right note and such a great image.

    I popped over to keep an eye on your xmas card tally too - you have done so well to make 61!! I think I have managed about 12, so everyone else will have to make do and get a card made from a quickie kit! :D

    hugs

  32. I know how you feel about comissions, it's always nerve wracking isn't it? Fortunately out of all the ones I've done I've only ever had one not liked!! Was asked for a trendy teen card for Christmas but then she didn't like it, too modern lol! Anyway I came over to admire your card, it's fab so I'm not surprised it was well liked! Lovely to have you playing at Sweet Stampin' too x
