Lovely flowers

I absolutely love flowers and taking photographs of them.  I have visited quite a few flowers shows in the last couple of years and taken hundreds of pictures.

Here are a few of my photo's from last years Chelsea flower show!

Christmas Pattern - Tigerprint competition runner up

I'm trying to finalise some ideas for Christmas cards this weekend, so I will be able to get them printed and photographed in time for selling.

Last year I entered Tigerprint's Christmas Surface Pattern and Icon Design competition, which I was chosen as a runner-up and I was so excited about!!! Tigerprint are a design company based near Leeds, who design greeting cards and stationary for Marks and Spencer.

The design below was the design they selected as a runner up. 

The Judges comments were "This snowflake design is a beautiful and intricate design, which captures the delicate and hand drawn quality. The design is very commercial and on trend for Christmas 2011.
Well-done Liz "

Take a look at the results page here

The two other designs that I entered are below.
