NEW PAGES IN MY KHADI CONCERTINA BOOK !


Hello friends , already reached the middle of November 
and Christmas is fast approaching .

All the same I had joy, playing for myself today , creating two pages in
the wonderful khadi paper concertina book, my dear friend Lynne , gifted
me earlier this year ,


Difficult to see the golden touches here , but they are there,
the leaf is a diecut , and the stamped ones,from a fairly new Tim Holz
stamp set. I love the bird sitting on the branch,which is a Paper Artsy
stamp set  from where the text comes, too.


Here a bit of the second page , using embossing text folder ,tulle 
and eco dyed paper . The beautiful WISH piece, was put on a paper bag
with lovelies inside, also from my dear Lynne.
And here below you see two pieces of tree bark, I have saved from a
tour in the wood , it has a lovely soft blue tone . 


I wish you a lovely rest of the week, and have fun with  Christmas
preparations , whenever you start them . I have most cards finished :-)

Sending you 
hugs and love

HAPPY AUTUMN FROM DENMARK


Autumn yes , but also started to create my Christmas cards 
this one in blue and brown colors , a mix I love.


And here a beautiful spot, we visited last week 
and in all autumns glory !!


Last a little collection of pumpkins ,
two real ones, inside my home, and two in
concrete making it cozy outside .


Almost October gone , and only two months till Christmas ,
time is flying so fast , here we have days with lovely weather,
but also rainy grey ones , I guess it is like it has to be . 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend
Hugs and love

MAKING A BREAK IN VISITING YOU

Tonight my daughter and grandchild arrives with the ferry
to visit and stay for some days, so I know I will not
be here , looking for news from you . 




So thought I would tell you and show this collage ,
together with some white beauties from the garden.


Yes a few are still blooming ,


but most of them starts looking a bit miserable ,
so I wanted to have some lovely memories over
winter , until next spring and summer.


Wishing you all, a wonderful weekend, 
and sending you big hugs 
and love.

A FEW THINGS TO SHOW YOU !

Hello dear friends, 
I wonder how you are all ? 

Already first week of September has gone, and I wanted
to show you this heart created for a dear Danish friend ,
for her birthday . 


A little story told , of the love between the
two beautiful people , here taken from a 
paper napkin , and adhered to the fabric.


The rest is old embroideries, all hold together with slow stitching 
and buttons .


I was so lucky to find this old English piece for
almost nothing , I love it.


One of the last  hollyhock flowers this year ,



And a most adorable and beautiful tiny book 
I was gifted for my birthday , from a dear friend , in USA .


I hope you are all doing good, and wish you a lovely weekend.

Hugs and love 
Dorthe

Hello dear friends

Thought I better post something before August is all gone ,
and have just finished this piece using  one of Tim Holz pressed leaf,
-the bird is from an old book , and it is all mounted on an
envelope I once was gifted from Anni , my dear Danish friend .


Also used eco-dyed papers , and gifts from dear Lynne ,
stamps and fabric. 


It is so hot here the last days, more than my head and body
likes to deal with , - but also lovely with a sunny end of August.

I hope you are all enjoying the last weeks of summer , or what period you are
in,  winter ,autumn , fall , all beautiful in each their way .

Hugs and love
Dorthe

Hello from a warm Friday


This card uses a page of my Eco-dyed leaf - added to a brown 
craft paper,  together with different papers,-


stamps , laces, and an image which I crumpled first to give it
wear and tear . 


I kind of like how it turned out .

Some of my roses are blooming again, for the second time, which is 
a beautiful gift , especially in this dry summer we have here where I live.


Today is another beautiful day, with blue sky and sun- not a cloud up there,
and around 27 Degrees C , so not too hot , but still very much enough for me  :-)

Sending you all wishes of a lovely weekend,

hugs and love
Dorthe
