My friend Bonnie needed a very special card for her father for Christmas. Evidently he really likes the western artist Bill Jaxon and for Christmas they were getting him a signed print but wanted him to think all they could get him was a post card with a personal note from the artist. Bonnie's mom asked Bonnie if she could do something special to present the postcard to Bonnie's dad and Bonnied told me "I told her...hmmm, I probably can't but I know someone who can!". And that is how I got commissioned to do the card.
I generally decline special orders, or any orders for that matter *okie doesn't like to think of papercrafting as orders because then it is a job and no fun* because I am always afraid it won't be like the person wants and they will complain or not like it and all my hard work will be for not. I really need to remember that the majority of my friends and family are NOT papercrafters so anything I do is awesome to them...it sure would help alleviate stress!
When I gave Bonnie the card she was quite pleased and as a thank you she had made me one of her famous bundt cakes that I love so much. Of course I can't show you a photo of that because Chuck and I ate the cake! LOL
