Auction Basket

Hi everyone, hope your day is going well.  Our church is doing a small fundraiser this weekend so I volunteered my cards to create a Auction Basket.  I am happy they are put to good use.

I made a Christmas card in between everything going on here, nothing special but still 1 card closer to Christmas.

My basket is ready to be delivered today at church.  I put 12 cards in it and now all I have left are the Christmas ones, just need to make more! LOL

The scene and Tilda are colored in Copics.  I sprayed goosebumps on the scene to give it texture and shine.  The chipboard frame was covered in silver distressed stain and then embossed with fragments.

My paper and embellies are from BO Bunny.  I made a pocket inside the card for a little Christmas wish.

Sorry this is quite short, my kids leave me tomorrow and we need to spend more time together.

My son Scott (24)Marine Corp. his wife Amber (21) then my daughter Amanda (19) on the bottom center is my missing son Noah (12) hiding behind my grandson Dominic (5) and then my youngest son Elijah (4).
Notice everyone has a dog, all in my house. Yuk, I need to do a thorough cleaning when they all leave.
I love my family. Next year my son Scott and his wife will be done with the Marine Corp and come home to make their own family. They are leaving for NC and I will miss them!!

Thanks for visiting today!
