I have a lovely client who will send me a list of cards she needs like this:
3 x Father’s Day
I like it because it gives me a starting point for the cards but still leaves me lots of room to play around and be creative. I used to get pretty stressed out with special orders but I think I've finally found my groove with them and now I kind of look at them as just another challenge card.
This next card isn't for a special order - it's just for a couple of challenges. I started out by using the design from Freshly Made Sketches. This adorable Simon Says pup has been sitting patiently in my stash for ages and I thought this was the perfect time to get him inky. The JUGS Wild Card challenge this week is paper piecing and since this guy is pieced (all the way down to his collar and tag) I'm going to enter him over there.
