This was a challenge! But a happy one.
Our neighbours have been trying to have a baby for a very long time. Lots of heart ache on their journey but at last, they are due to have a baby girl next month.
I am invited to her baby shower this weekend and the invitation asked for “a book instead of a card”. So, I thought I would write one!!!!! What was I thinking???? :idiot2:
It took two weeks to illustrate it and I still haven’t bound it yet.
It was tough to make it entertaining and personal to them and also try to make the illustrations ok for a little girl to see. Anyhoo....here is my attempt. You have to know them to really get the humour but one thing is his hair. Nathan was in the SAS for 20 years. He has been medically discharged and has decided to grow his hair and his beard for the first time. The funny thing is that he is actually going bald on top, so wears his hat at all times!
Val has actually seen it and I thank you Val for your response.
I love being a part of the Paintbasket family!
