Post to a dear friend, new blog head, and a rose

Here is a very little taste ,for my dear friend "J" , laying on top in the package I send off to her
yesterday. I hope it will arrive before easter, but ............... if not ,she has to wait till after.

I know I already told you about Karen helping me with a new background on my blog,
but after that, my blog head did not fill out the space,- so I was happy when she made me a new head.
I think she did a wonderfull job, and I`m so very thankfull, and happy for my new look.
If you want a change on the look ,at your blog, visit Karen ,-she is very pleasent to work with, -sweet, and her prices. are very reasonably ---just click on her blog link below-


I have long wanted to make a flower, using the tecknic of burning a thin material over a candle.
And when I two dayes ago saw this wonderfull blog of Linda`s ( go to older pages , to find the beautifull photoes showing how to do)--- with the most beautifull flowers made like that, I had to try the same. And this is how it came out,--it is burned a lot, to show a ragged
and used ,shappy style, ---I turned it into a hair buckle for myself, and Love it.

IT`s soon to be easter, and I wish all of you some wonderfull easter hollydayes,
I`m seeing my mother here for a cosy dinner, thursday, and the we are invited to two sweet girlfriends of mine ,to have dinner ,too, --so the dayes here will be spend in lovely compagny.
I hope you can relax and enjoy, and be thankfull for being here.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

The package looks absolutely wonderful! I also really like the flower with the singed edges!

The new look to your blog and banner is beautiful!

Everything is lovely!

You have made that rose so special, with the little leaves and the beautiful centre, and the material is such a lovely deep colour.
The tag is wonderful, so very creative. I like the way you have overlaid the picture of the eye with that semi transparent paper, so that when you first look at the card, you are immediately drawn to the eye.

Hi Dorthe,
I really like how your flower turned out....sort of shabby chic.
I would probably burn the entire thing up trying to make one! LOL

Dorthe amor (love, sweetie), Your blog redo is beautiful! I love it, Karen just did mine too and I think it is just gorgeous too :) I thought I was following your blog from when I posted about one of your giveaways awhile back, but I must have done something wrong because it turns out I wasn't and never was getting your new post updates :( But I just fixed that and I am now following your beautiful blog :) I love your lovely creations and can now catch up on your posts that I missed all this time :) if you have a moment please visit my lil blog too and let me know what you think of my redo too ;) Have a beautiful day! Besos (kisses), Rose

I really love your new look! I love seeing the wonderful pictures of all your amazing creations at the top, I think it is very personal. I know it's Dorthe! Karen did an excellent job! Love the burned flower, my heat gun is my favorite tool. And one last thing, I bet I know who the 'J' is!! Lucky girl. Have a beautiful Easter with your Mother friend. I'll be traveling to Mississippi, I may be nuts by the time I return after hours in the car with 3 kids, hub & a dog! Lisa
