Cards for my parents

I made these two cards for my parents in Poland, one is for Mother's Day and the other one for my father's 82nd birthday at the end of the month.

This card is for my Dad and I used his 

photo when he was a very young man, 

taken before he met my Mum.

This card is for my Mum and I used a photo of 

my sister and I when we were little, I am 

the blondie on the left and think I was about 

three years old when the photo was taken.

Wedding hearts

Australian Art Sister Sue Smith is getting married this year and she plans to have mixed lots of mixed media hearts hanging during the ceremony.  I made three hearts to send for the occasion, they are two-sided and two hearts are identical on both sides, while one is not.  Here they are:

The heart on the right has different back

The heart on the right is the same one as above

Small vinyl bag

My friend Margaret helped me last night to make this small vinyl bag with some pages from a vintage children's book.  The pages are sandwiched with glue in between two pieces of vinyl and then sewn into the bag.  The hardest parts are to manoeuvre it while sewing as it is quite stiff, to turn it inside out and then attach the handles.
