Collage for our Hospice

Our local Hospice is running an Art Auction to raise funds and asked for A5 size pieces which will all be displayed at an exhibition running through October and then sold.  Its a great idea and I really enjoyed creating my "Beautiful" collage - I've got an invitation to the preview of all the submissions tomorrow night and might even put a bid on a piece of art someone else has created.  Everyone wins - and most of all the Hospice which does such marvellous work for people with cancer and their families, will benefit financially.  What a wonderful outcome.  Hope you like my effort.

Blue flower card

I love it when I can hand someone their birthday card and really go to town with a lovely flower on it!  Here's one I made using Distress stains (Broken China, Dusty Concorde and the fab new Picket Fence) touched with Glimmer Glam in champagne.  Really pleased with the way the flower turned out and thought the TH metal leaves just finished it off.  Thanks for looking.

Oriental card and box

A card I made for a recent Oriental theme swap.  I really liked this challenge and found some lovely images to use along with loads of tickets and bits brought back from Japan by my DIL.  Unfortunately, I'm finding it difficult to keep track of my pics so will have to get my son to help me sort them out when he can, then I can upload some more.  So pleased I remembered how to add them here.  Thanks to anyone who takes a peek.
