breast cancer fundraising.
I'm going to try and entice you guys to buy this thinger
by adding elements to it bit by bit,
and by customizing it to your taste as much as I can.
And it's a series of auctions!
my piece up for auction looks like a card in this photo...
...but it's actually a canvas on wood
(renewable resource archival-quality wooden canvas)
It measures 6 inches by 6 inches
and is decorated with:
- Watercolour paper,
- Heat-embossed vellum
- Hand stitching
- and heat-embossed pieces on all 4 sides.
I made little wee embossed flowers for it
(from the Stampin' Up Birds & Blooms die).
They have paint-distressed snaps in the centers...
...but left it customizable,
so what would YOU
like to see on this?:
I'll be making a couple different flower options and
sending them to the winner...
....so if that's you, then
you can choose which flowers you like best
and keep the rest to switch out for a new look to the canvas,
or use however you like.
If you don't like flowers, then
you can put whatever you'd like on it. :o)
If you'd like this wooden canvas
to come live at your house,
You can bid on it in the comments
-just say how much you'd like to donate, and be sure to
leave your email (or send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
The bidding ends on the 23rd, so until then
I'll keep adding details to this project to try to entice you. :o)

I know my family is far from being the only one to be
fighting cancer in its different forms,
so thank you in advance for helping however you can!
to get screening for early detection,
P.S. This wooden canvas has a secret box compartment hidden
in the back too. (I'll reveal photos of that soon.) :o)
