Sir Christopher Wren and his creations

For the Three Muses challenge this week
I have always considered Sir Christopher Wren to be one of England's greatest architects and to my mind infinitely better than today's practitioners! 
I found this lovely background image on the internet showing many of the towers of Wren churches in the City of London together with the dome of St. Paul's; the portrait of Sir Christopher is also courtesy of the internet; and, as he was reputedly a freemason, I have added the square and compass to represent this.
Font is 'Caslon Antique,

A Welcome Letter

For this week's challenge at Three Muses 
For some reason I couldn't post the image directly from my computer but had to go via Photobucket.
Credits to Pixel Music for the background which I turned into a giant postage stamp, and to kingkongphoto123 on Flickr for the main image. 
The letters etc. are from a CD of vintage ephemera I bought a while ago.

For the Collage Obsession challenge this week
Clarabelle hoped that she had finally saved enough to buy the new shoes she had been longing for for ages.
Would that shoes only cost $3 nowadays!

Saint Paul's

This card was made for a forum swap which was for a shaped card. I know that it has already arrived with its recipient so it's safe to post it here.
I took an old photo of St.Paul's and created the effect of a charcoal drawing in PSP. I printed it on the front of a 300gsm A5 (A4 folded in half) card and then printed it out four more times on matt 160 gsm paper to create several decoupage layers. I then printed the sky photo (one of my own) on an A5 sheet to create the background/insert.
