A Doting Aunt

A friend and regular customer of mine has been sending customised birthday cards to her niece and nephew in Australia for a number of years - well, almost since they were born actually. It seems that she didn't order a card for her nephew's first birthday. I hope he will forgive her for her error! She recently travelled to Australia and sent me this wonderful photo of (almost) all the cards together. It's not the best photo, but there is a lot of love in it! Her sister has carefully saved the cards and my friend put them all together for a picture. I am delighted that they are treasured. Coby and Orly have a younger sister too. I have provided links to her cards as well, though they have not been included in the main picture.
Coby: TwoThreeFourFiveSixSeven (not pictured), Eight (it seems that I forgot to blog about it!) and Nine.

Orly: OneTwoThreeFourFiveSix, Seven (it seems that I forgot to blog about it!) and Eight.

Jordy (not pictured): Birth, OneTwo and Three.

Another young lady, Aimee, was turning 12. Her grandma didn't give me a specific brief, so I simply made her a colourful card showing her age. I added some bunting, music notes, stars and a heart. 
The same grandma ordered a card for her grandson. I have been making Manchester United cards for him for several years now - he's obviously a loyal fan - and each year I try to come up with something a little bit different. It's getting hard! This time I cut out a striped scarf  in Man Utd's colours, and added the team crest and a football. The Hebrew greeting on the card says "Happy Birthday to Nadav my dear grandson".

They are all wonderful! I love how those first kids have been receiving one of your cards every year. They can show their own children one day. :)

So gorgeous to see all the cards together, Lisa. No wonder you are an international hit.

Hello Lisa, hope everything is well with you? Hope you're taking a vacation or working on some special projects, and the reason why we haven't seen you at All Seasons. Hope to see you there soon with new energy and creativity!
Love the last card, it looks like a nostalgic classic - what a gift!
