Beautiful gifts from a beautiful soul !!

 Last months I received a package of love and beauty , from a very dear friend
Wendy from   http://appleapricot.blogspot.dk/.


Wendy and I have know each other for many years, and she is a beautiful soul and friend.
Just look what was inside , waiting for me !!
The most lovely booklet , so beautifully crafted ! Look the embroidered -friend- on the 
front and the sari silk closure !!


Inside sweetness of pockets one with a tiny book and a handwritten sentiment , and outside 
the gorgeous butterfly, another with a pencil to add notes in the book 
And flowers , - tiny tag and the beautiful bone cross .


This is the back cover , with the embroidered foliage ,turning
all around the book. I so love it Wen, dear !!


And this lovely friend, also thought I should be gifted her very first macrame
art piece, which is this wonderful dream catcher, - now hanging so beautiful here in
my workroom ,between two shelves , dangling when I pass .


These two cute hand crochet flowers, are from Wen`s clever hands ,too, 
the little one made from the most thin yarn and tiny old crochet hook.
They are gorgeous !


Oh and if it was not all too much already, I also found this  adorable hand knitted ,-
Wen is calling it a pocket message booklet , and you see her so loving message
also embroidered here , -what a beautiful message to be gifted, and to hold maybe
in my pocket or maybe around my arm, - the biggest gift I can receive,  :" you are loved " .



Outside another hand crochet heart and an embroidered button .


Oh dearest Wen, how can I ever express my gratitude , and joy for all
these lovingly created and gifted beautiful things. 
Thank you from my heart ,to you dear friend. I treasure it all so very much,
as I also treasure our friendship. 
I`m also so happy to see you back blogging again.
Loving hugs to you, smiles and kisses.

-------------------------------

And hugs and love to all my dear visiter `s,  you are a very important
part of my life , thank you !!

The beautiful hanger , so lovely with old laces and the two friends,
the pearls, and loving words ,-
and on the back also ,wonderful words , about friendship,
Thank you dear Marie.


You have seen both hearts, so beautiful they are,
and Marie soldered the one  herself.
I love both , speaking their own language 
about friendship.

BE LEAD BY YOUR DREAMS


Anything but Cards is the challenge this time, so I created 
a hanger, by turning a big wonderful White Greyboard from That`s Crafty , on the tip.


I used the big Flower stencil to add texture in every corner, using Gesso ,
sprayed with Infusions,


Added one of Tim Holz paperdolls ,


and painted lovely Embellishments og flowers , and butterflies with Shimmer Paints 
using a little gesso to brighten some of the colors. 



Laces and fabrics were also spray colored with Infusion , and added to the background
together with buttons and the embellishments.


Here you see the beautiful shimmer from the green color . 
I stamped them with : Butterfly Trio stamp

You can find almost all the materials over at 
That`s Craft shop : http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/

Hope you enjoyed  :-)
