I picked up an order at a recent craft fair for an 8x8 card for a man who is soon to be the proud father of twins. The lady who ordered it had been looking for a suitable card but all the cards she could find were for the woman having the babies, saying she was leaving to have a baby. Solution - a handmade card. She popped into the craft fair again last Saturday and said how much everyone at her work liked it and wanted to know where she got it from. Always nice to please customers.

Gorgeous - and it is nice to see two babies that are different but similar, if you see what I mean. Most twins cards are identical. I am not surprised your customer was thrilled, it is beautiful. Hugs xx
