Cruise Ship

Hi Peeps.  Hope you are all well and are having some decent weather.  I think ours is yet to arrive!!! I got soaked yesterday going food shopping and it is likely to be the same today.

My card today is another one of my commissioned 5 card order.  I was just thinking that I was working well reducing them when another lady asked me if I would make a card for her daughter's 60th birthday.  Her hobby is Synchronised Swimming and the card needs to show this!!!  Three years ago I had enough trouble with her other daughter's as she works for the local football club and she wanted a lady playing football on the card.  Her Granddaughter's had to show a Radiologist on the card as that's her job.  All three I was told not to make feminine at all as they are not feminine in the slightest.

For today's card I was told it had to have a Cruise Ship on it as the man is always going on cruises. Lucky man that's what I say.  Lol!!!  Also no larger than A5 of course.
