My first ‘proper’ customer!

Well there you go, it just goes to show that if you try hard enough, you can succeed! I have only been making cards for a very short time, when my husbands line manager asked if I could make him a card for a forth coming wedding! Now this in itself was a new thing for me( not the wedding – I am married) but making a wedding card. I have made plenty of cards for birthdays, Easter, etc but not one for a wedding… and this was my first commission!

Well the long and short of it is that I managed to put together a truly beautiful card – well I thought it was lovely anyway. I even had the confidence to make a box for the card using my Crafting Companion Ultimate Pro, this was something else I was proud of, I only hoped the customer would be pleased too.

And he was.

I had a text from my husband to say he was gobsmacked (the customer – not my husband!) .More than that my husband said the card and box would cost him £4.50 and he gave him a Fiver!

On top of that he has asked for another card for a new baby girl (it is due in 5 weeks) and has already given my hubby the fiver for it…

It does so much for my confidence and just proves how far I have come since beginning last December.

Until next time…
