Bespoke time again.

Good afternoon all, how are you today?
A couple of you guessed correctly yesterday, I've always wanted to make one.  I did think once I'd made it I would love to do more but if stuffing certain parts of it is anything to go by I might not be doing another one.

I'm back from a short shift at work, boy it goes quickly.  I've just time to post here before starting the tea and today I have a bespoke card for you that I was asked for recently.
My brief this time was a gentleman who is 60, he comes from Montserrat, was in the Royal Navy and supports Gillingham football club.
This is what I came up with.

 I think that is all bases covered.  Don't you?

After finishing work today I grabbed a quick bite for lunch and then it was time to get the boys, since then it has been "mum, mum, mum."  I wonder why I don't get things done!
I'd like to get around to a bit of crafting later so I guess I better go and start the tea.  The sooner I start the sooner I will finish.

Before I go can you believe a customer asked me today if we had any mince pies!
Ho, ho, ho.....it's coming don't you know!

Great card. Erika. Yes you got it all correct. Love all the embellishments. Do you some time wish you could change your name? I do when all I hear is " Hazel". Xx

Hi Erika,
what a really super card.
I love it, and what a fab design too.
Now I have to make a Cardiff City football one for my sister's friend, shortly.
My they must have wanted to eat the mince pies now, as I remember when I used to by them for the hampers for my club they never had a very long shelf date.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
