A thankyou gift , send to The Netherlands

I had for long wanted to make a thankyou gift for Yvonne ----Yitte  to show her how much her beautiful OWOH gift to me ,means .She made it so extra, and I love it-and looks at it with joy, every day.
So I thought a driftwood angel woul be a right thank you choice!

Also I wanted to show my thankfulness-by adding a heart

And I thought she should have a little nature from Bornholm ,too.

Because this gift from her, was so very beautiful and gorgeus.

This book made with much love and beautiful french fabric`s-was the winning piece - but Yvonne also made a wonderful envelope for it- and then she added a most beautiful collage-(shown last year when winning)

Everything she makes is fantastic- and so beautifully made-
go to see her newly posted book,(click her name above) she made in  Nellie`s class-it is a fantastic art piece

Also wanted to show you my blue Clematis , isen`t it beautiful-and so full of blooms just now.

I had the most wonderful time in Copenhagen, and misses my little Mathilde.
But it is also good to bee home again, to create-.
I wish you  a wonderful week ahead, and sends all my dear friends and followers happy spring greetings from a cold and rainy Denmark-also to you living with autumn around the corner .
Hugs and love-Dorthe

Such incredible gifts! You are such a generous guest and artist. And you received such lovelies.

I am going to try again with the napkins. We changed our computer to this "one password" system and all of a sudden, nothing is working!!!

Hi Dorthe!

Absolutely beautiful artwork you have got and made to your friend. I have loved from the beginning I found your blog that "sea theme" that you have in your art. You have found a way to express yourself with an unique, own style. I could fill my home with your beautiful work of art :-)))

Have a wonderful weekend dear friend :-))
