Perfect Likeness


My lovely new customer who ordered this card for her friend also asked me to make cards for her mum and for her granddaughter. "Mum needs a comb in her hand" she said, "she is always faffing with her hair!". She also asked me to add some anemones somewhere on the card. I had a lot of fun creating them in bright red and purple.
The other card was for her granddaughter. She plays the ukulele, likes art and making things. My customer sent me a picture of the little girl, so I was able to create her paper portrait, right down to the white braid in her hair. I showed her playing her ukulele. Some paper, pencils and a little pot with scissors and another pencil are next to her. A big yellow number seven marks her age.
The Hebrew greeting says "Happy Birthday to my Dear Granddaughter Noya".
My customer seemed very happy with the cards and posted a lovely review of my work. "I just received personalised birthday cards which I ordered from Lisa Isaacs. I can't get over the likeness to my mum! Just fabulous. Thank you Lisa. [The card is] a really special touch for a special 91st birthday. Looking forward to my next order."

Love how your cards are so personalized. Needing to have a comb in her hand made me smile! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Great when people are so happy with the personalized card you made for them!It's worth all your hard work, because the ukulele strings had to be so precise:):) Many thanks for sharing your work with All Seasons! Hope you enjoyed Pesach with your family:)
