Maybe some of you know that I was the lucky winner of dear Wendy `s  beautiful giveaway .
Today I recieved the packet from her, and just take a look at all the 
delightful and lovely gifts , which were inside !


Everything packed with love and so gorgeous ,in blue tones .


See , how sweet .... they are all !!


Wendy created this adorable card for me, with the most dear image , so beautiful
adorned with lovely fabrics, laces and one of her tattered wonderful flowers,and the birdie !!
I love it dear Wendy.


The sweetest ,lovely heart was inside one of the bird packages, so
very beautiful in romantic fabric of blue roses, and with another
gorgeously tattered flower, and on top one made from a ribbon!
What is more to say than BEAUTIFUL !!


And look at this tattered cross , isen`t it also beautiful,
and the button in the middle, a lovely ,lovely idea.


More wonderful tattered and chrocheted flowers , I can`t wait to
use them for something lovely. 


What a beautiful work my dear, I can`t imagine you almost
only stared doing this kind of artwork , and admire your skills
very much.


One of the giveaway pieces was a great and beautiful Brocante magazine from The Netherlands,
-the one on top- but sweet Wendy also send me another one . They are filled with 
wonderful homes, and ideas, and even I can`t read Dutch ,I understand some words !!

SOFT VINTAGE , AND CHRISTMAS !


This vintage ,and neutral coloured card, was created for one of my  friends !



I love the images of the two sisters so much, but don`t remember from where it is, 
also it was already printed out, and therefore it will take lots of time
to refind it again in my files , hehehe.



This other with lots of  christmassy feeling, also was created,
for a Danish friend,- whom luckily, after 14 dayes 
of waiting, recieved it last week !!


I loved to make the snow, with a Tim Holz stencil !!

This coming sunday we are having a big fleamarket , here where we live,
we have gone through all the savings of older furnichures, glasses,
toyes, fabric rests ,pearls, pictures, and much more.
I hope to see a lot of happy people ,wanting to buy something!!

As most of you reading this blog are far,far away, and therefore
really not able to come,- I will just wish you a lovely week, and
a restful and happy weekend.

Hugs and love from Dorthe

I HOPE YOU CAN TOLERATE A FEW MORE CHRISTMAS CARDS , DEAR FRIENDS!!

I`m in such a moode to create for christmas already, so I
will show you a few more cards .

The first one on recycled cardboard is kept in the nature tones,
of cardboard, sepia and white, with a touch of silver !!



I used a snowflake stencil and plaster on the background,
and a little music tissue paper,-- crumpled papers behind the image, to
give the 3-d effect, a little lace and the cross !!



This is stamped with the beautiful stamps from  Artistic Outpost,
which are so lovely I think, I coloured the stamps after with watercolours!


Also here I added the magic of glitter, a little snow and the sweet image, which
I don`t remember where I got!!! Maybe some of you knows ? The big star is a 
die-cut and the smaller ones punshed out !!


How about you, have you started creating something for christmas ? 
I is so enjoyable this year ,for me, as I don`t have to create for my shop !!

Have a wonderful week, and see you soon !!

Hugs and love
Dorthe

CARD FOR CHRISTMAS !!


Yes I know it is early, but I like to start creating my 
christmas cards early ,this year !! 

I have had to face ,-dear friends, that now ,as I`m a retired, I simply
can`t afford to send heavy packages around the world for
christmas, with gifts, - so from now on it will be a beautiful 
card!! I so hope everyone, with whom I normally,  "exchange " gifts,
agree with me, and think it is ok !!!


This card is mainly papers, with a tiny lace, 
a  gloss photo , stenciled snow, and 


a little glitter ! 


I loved crumbling up old papers to give texture and let the
image kind of fly!! 


I hope you liked it !!

Thank you alwayes for your lovely visits and sweet comments, 
they make my world brighter  and lovely !!

Welcome also to new followers, you are so very welcome.

Hugs and love
Dorthe

I MADE A LITTLE NEW JOURNAL .

Following Sandy`s  beautiful blok I read about this tutorial created by 
another wonderful artist  Karla from http://karlascottage.typepad.com/creating_an_art_journal_t/
If you click the link it  will take you to her blog, to let you read the deatils and see some wonderful examples .
The tutorial is wonderfully photographed and explained!


This is my first attempt 

I choosed to make a book with a closing flap ,
as you can see I used only old fabrics and laces ,and the sweetest
little metal  heart with an angel ,a gift from a dear friend.


The book is bound with lovely seambindings!


This is the backside.


And here opened up on first page, showing the still empty pages!



This is the back with the flap opened up, the beautiful paper I used inside is old 
wall paper.



And here you see the spine .
I loved creating with Karla, and can`t wait to fill all my empty pages.

It woun`t though be the coming week ,which will be spend with my grandkids,-
speaking of experience, there will be no time for creating or blogging while they are here :-)

So forgive me for not visiting you next week dear friends.
I will return and follow up ,where I left !!

Hugs and love from Dorthe
