One World One Heart 2011

Hello Everyone, I am so excited to be part of this wonderful exchange. My name is Gisèle, and I live in Québec, Canada; french is my mother tongue, so please feel free to leave your comments in french or english. I am primarily a card maker, but have started venturing out into mixed media lately. I have always dabbled in this and that, but started making my cards after an accident that left me with an injured nerve in my neck, which is very painful and causes me restricted mobility. I can honestly say that art changed and saved my soul...I have a beautiful garden with a wide variety of flowers...I love paper, paint, textures, stones, beads, wire, colors... I have learnt so much in the past year from beautiful and generous bloggers...I am honored to offer these 3 cards to one lucky active blogger who leaves me a comment, with contact information. I will e-mail, as well as post,  the winner on February 17th, 2011. Now, I am off to visit all of you across the world..
Bon Voyage tout le monde !!!
