Collage Obsession and Christmas Card

Hello Everyone from a cold and dull NE UK Coast. It seems to have got quite cold all at once so my thicker clothes and thermals are out of their hiding places already. Thank you for calling in. It is always warming to have visitors.

At Moo Mania and More the theme is Poinsettia and you don't have to include a Moo at all if you want to join in.

I made a card for my hairdresser as she loves poinsettias and is so lovely. She comes to our house to cut my hair so I don't have to go to the hairdressers at all. The photograph isn't good as the light is awful here so far today.

I printed out this sheet that I designed 'way back when' from a flower by Carey. I tried to find an addie for Carey but it seems like she has disappeared now. When I used to do PSP tutorials I had permission from many artists to use their work-some are quite well known in the crafty world now. I think maybe people like Carey closed her website when they became expensive to run--I know I did. You can use this sheet if you like to build your own poinsettia.

At Collage Obsession the theme is Smile and there is a photograph as inspiration if you want to use it--I used the theme of the photograph which was an astronaut. I am joining this at Art Journal Journey as well where their theme is collage for this month-thanks for inviting me to add this Valerie :)

Difficult to smile I imagine when you are floating down to earth and wondering what might happen on the way down.

Have a great day everyone.

Love Chrissie x
