Commissioned Synchronised Swimming Card

Hi Folks.  Hope you are all well, those poorly or sad I hope things improve for you soon.

My card today is my very difficult order for a Synchronised Swimmer's 60th birthday.  I have said in the past that this lady always finds really difficult subjects for me to deal with.  This the fourth card I have had to make for her over the three years I have known her.  She only gets me to make them when she can't buy such a thing in the shop's.  I am not happy with it at all, but she is so that's the main thing I suppose.  At least my other difficult customer I make for all the time!!!!

  15. You did a fabulous job with a difficult subject. Wonderful image. Thanks for sharing with us at 613 Avenue Create this week and hope to see you again soon.

  16. The most important thing is that your customer is happy about it,and I must say your card orders have some really challenging themes. But since she comes to you each time she can't find a suitable card herself she must be happy with your work and obviously she recognizes the importance of a personalized card...

  17. What a clever thought of everything. An oval pool! Brilliant idea!
