Very Nearly Stumped

I have been making commission cards for many years and have covered practically every subject under the sun and believe me I have had some weird and wonderful requests over the years but this one very nearly had me stumped and I just had to share it with you. The brief was "card for a teacher who is moving to a new job at one our local primary schools from a school in Aberdeen about 5 miles away"......easy peasy I thought..I will look out my Nitwit Kindergarten Collection and " could you add something about canoeing onto the card...as she is really into CANOEING".
I spent most of the afternoon pondering how I could incorporate canoeing onto the card and I must say I don't give up without a fight...finally the penny dropped and this is what I came up with......

After all the excitement of yesterday...as you can see it's back to the day job and this week I must make a start on making up my sample Christmas cards...now that is a challenge as at the moment I have no ideas in my head whatsoever. Love Kath xxxxxxx

It is difficult when people ask for the most obscure things. But you sure did come up with the goods. Well done, it's so obviously one of a kind and will be so personal.
