A Glass of Wine in One Hand, a Bottle in the Other

A customer asked me to create a card for her best friend's special birthday. She asked me to show the birthday girl holding a glass of wine in one hand and a wine bottle in the other. She also requested Cadbury Chocolate and Maltesers in the background. I included her friend's age as well.
I'm told that Julie loved the card.
An old friend (okay, not so old, but you know what I mean!) asked me to make this card for his sister's 50th birthday. The funny thing was, he had been telling me for years that he was going to ask me to make a card one day, and this year he finally did! Unfortunately he then forgot to take it with him to the UK to give to his sister on her birthday, though I am happy to report that she did eventually receive it, two months after I had made it!
Beverley drives a black cab and enjoys hiking. I created her paper portrait and showed her next to her cab, which has her name on the registration plate. I added some hiking boots as well. A big yellow number 50 marks her age.
"Lisa, the birthday card was finally delivered and well received. Thanks again." my friend messaged me.

Very cute cards. I love how personalized they are. I've been reading a book on paper mosaics and though the period of time is vastly different from our own, your paper work reminds me of the book "The Paper Garden: An Artist Begins Her Life's Work at 72". I am always amazed at the skill of artists who work with paper.

I knew she was a taxi cab driver from the card before I read your narrative. It's like a little game for me. Fun!

Hi Lisa, what lovely cards, I have no doubt that both recipients were equally pleased to be given such special cards. Even if one did wait two months for hers, after all, that's brothers for you!

Great that these ladies may be older in years, but not in heart:) Did you mean to say that Beverly is a cab driver, or is her car the same as the car used as cabs? Hope is week is not as hectic as the previous one! Was impressed you still got a post out to All Seasons:):)
