Have you looked on Google images, I always seem to be able to find even the most obscure things that people ask for on there.

Ooh I dont know about finding images on google or on the web sorry, I have a Greetings Cards CD that I tend to use if I want clip art or the like

Just an emergency idea in case you really dont find any pictures you like - if you have the stuff to do your own text, I guess you could always make a nice "general" card but think of a horsey/skiing text? Like maybe

Out To Pasture? Neigh!

For the skiiing one, you could cut the front in half diagonally to make it look like a ski slope and just have Happy Biiirrrrtttddaaaaayyy as though theyre going down the slope or sumat?

For the horsey cards could you do something with a hurdle/jump or a horse shoe with 'wishing you luck on your birthday'.

Did you get them sorted Grommie?

Did you only get the order yesterday for today, or did you keep putting it off, if you only got the order yesterday, then its very short notice, you should add extra onto their price, unless its for a friend, and you're not charging them...

Well how did you do, did you manage to get them done in time? Let us know how you did, and possibly describe what they look like, or put up some pictures, if you took any that is!

Thankyou everyone!!!! for your help :mf:

It was VERY short notice I only found out yesterday but I was up at 5 this morning to go to work so I needed an earlyish night but i didnt get chance to do them. I saw her today and she said wednesday now, so a little more time now i suppose to do them do them because thats when Im next into work I wish I never said I would do them really but it may relax me cause I also have 400 catalogues to deliver:mad:as well as my other job Im so glad its part time

I will post some pictures when Ive done them so you can see
