Gran

A new customer wanted to order a birthday card for her gran. She loves baking and cooking for everyone, my customer told me, and she loves her family - the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Delving further, I was told that Gran's speciality are her jam biscuits, ginger biscuits, apple cake (and lots more!).
I have shown Gran wearing an apron and proudly holding a big plate of biscuits. Her favoured apple cake is next to her and behind her is a small photo of nearly all of her great-grandchildren. I added her age too, and the greeting "Happy Birthday Gran / Safta" (Safta means grandmother in Hebrew).
My customer wrote to tell me that "Gran loved the card!"
Another customer requested a special birthday card for her granddaughter who was turning 21. I decided that bunting, some heels, a glass of champagne, lipstick and stars were the right thing for a 21st birthday card. The Hebrew greeting says "Happy Birthday to my dear Granddaughter Karin".
Lastly, this was a simple but sweet design for a small card. I hope the lady who received it liked it.

Each one is wonderful, but of course the Gran one really spoke to me ... love that you included the grandchildren photo on the "wall". behind her.

Beautiful designs. I love how Gran is still baking at 91! I hope to still be so active at that age too.
