Anne's Special Request Card
Good Morning Ladies,
Just look at what our Anne has come up with for her 'Special Request' card, isn't she just a design genius!!
Anne was asked to make a card with the phrase "The Traffic Goddess says GO!" , well I have to say I would have had a job thinking of what to create! You have hit the nail on the head Anne, its an absolutely amazing card, the recipient will be over the moon when he opens this card. As I have said before you can go to a card shop a buy cards for any amount of money, funny ones, romantic ones, age ones etc, but you simply cannot buy this level of personalisation, (i know you can moonpig etc but the cards are thin and cheap) not beautifully handmade like this one.
Anne I think that your cards are going to be constantly in demand at your local garden centre, I hope you have put up a notice saying that you can design personalised cards too, you can charge extra for those cards too. Although card pricing is something I find really difficult, you need to cover your cost and add a little for your time, but thats the hard part. I hope you are getting a good price for yours. People don't think twice about about paying £5 + for a card in a card shop do they! I will always remember making my Mum a Christmas card, I put my heart and soul into that card and when she opened it she said "oh you've made me a card so you didn't have to buy me one" I was absolutely gutted, I wish I had said 'are you kidding me, this card cost loads more than a bought card" but I didn't !! I know that if my children make me a card, it melts my heart that they have spent their time making it, I have never thrown one of their cards away!
I think that Sue and I are off to Pat's today to craft and put the world to rights, maybe we should discuss the Europe debate? hhhmmm maybe not!
Have a fabulous day however you are spending it, I hope that you have all escaped the worst of the weather, we had a few claps of thunder and that was pretty much it, thankfully.
Love and Hugs
