Art received

I received this card from my sister Beata for my Name Day in November. It is beautiful and my sister amazes me with what she creates, especially that she only started paper art a year ago or so.

The card came in this lovely envelope:

I received this card from Paper Princess Judy for the New Year but as you will see, it is about the Chinese New Year. How clever is that. The card is stunning, much nicer in real life. Judy made her own background which is quite sparkly.

A colleague from work, Alison, has made this card for me. Amazingly she put white and red ribbon on it without knowing that it is the Polish flag, very special indeed:

Birthday class for Martyna and her friends

Martyna, who created the lovely poppy picture which I featured in the post on 27 December 2011, had a 15th birthday party in January. Her Mum Ala asked me to do a class for her friends who were invited for a sleepover.

I designed this picture for the class but the participants were encouraged to put their own spin to it, including different colurs, flowers, layout etc. The results were amazing as you will see below.

The class took place in the garden, the girls listened carefully but they also had fun:

These were the finished pictures, amazingly beautiful and all different:
