    Greetings! I picked up your information recently from White Fence Farm. I would love to have you make me a 12” x 16″ 2 subject Color Pastel for a Christmas present to my husband. I have the paperwork filled out and the prints ready to mail you. Would you be interested in this order? Can it be completed by Christmas? Is it easier to email the prints to you? Thank you for your time and attention to this wonderful present.
