~*HoPe Is ThE KeY!!!


I read a blog post the other day
and the burden in the blogger's voice
inspired me to create this piece
for her....


I asked her for her address
and I'm sending it to her.

Hoping It will give her Hope!

The collage is about 5X7 inches and is a box lid that one of my most favorite pieces of jewelry came in.  I collaged the sides and used a paperwhimsey background with fibers and vintage buttons and little pearls.  The darling little gal is also from paper whimsey and is cut out and glued on to cardboard.
Outlined with a silver leaf pen.  I wrapperd the sides with ribbon. some new and some old.  I found a darling little key and the word hope on a little metal embellishment which I glued on with ultimate crafter's glue.

OK, I've been looking for the Mother's Day post you told me about. Hmmm.... I'm scratching my head.
