A card with a very beautiful image, that I think comes from a blog called Artefachts with wonderful freebies.
I placed a beautiful scheleton leave  I found, apun her, and gorgeus lace fabric ,and handmade paper,too
The little hearth is decorated with a bird transfer, lovely embroidered fabric-and the beautiful poem from Emily Dickson-don`t you love it?

3 beauties from my garden, :
an almost white peony

Madame Alfred Carriere

And a very old wild rose in our garden-so beautiful and fragile,
and so quickly gone.....

Tomorrow it is Sct.Hans evening  -a heathen celebartion of midsummer- where we have bonfires all over, and meets in every town ,to see the "witches" being burned- singing midsummer songs, and maybe eat with family or friends. If the weather is not on rain, it is a beautiful evening, in the danish summer.
And friday it is my birthday, not to be very much celebrated- --one dear friend comes for dinner-and that is very cosy, and what I prefer :)
I hope you are all in good spirit, and feeling happy.
And I wish you a beautiful rest of the week.
Love and hugs Dorthe

Dear Sweet Dorthe
One is truly blessed to be the receiver of these beautiful art pieces. They are both so delicately and lovingly made with love and kindness. The card is heavenly and the image so gently revealed under the skeleton leaf left by nature on the ground. The melody of the little bird is heard from afar!
Your roses would gladden any heart so sweetly fragrant too.
Have a most wonderful midSummer celebration and bonfire followed with a special and most Happy Birthday!
One more sleep to go as Julia says.
Much love and joy to fill your heart,
Suzy, xoxoxox

Dorthe - I hope you had a wonderful special birthday- may I sent my wishes to you today - just a little late!

Your newest creations are lovely - (they ALWAYS are!) The heart is fabulous - to die for - love the bird transfer and the leaves - it is gorgeous!

Thanks for your sweet comments earlier - you know - when we were in your part of the world just a while back - we thought the same thing when we were over there - that your country was absolutely beautiful - we loved every minute.

There is a whole big world out there my friend - so much to see and experience - I want to do as much as I can - while I can~~

Hugs to you~
