Today was my first day in the studio in the new year,- and after cleaning the mess a little bit, I created this heart and cart for a wonderful friend. The bird image is transferred to cloth and the pocket holds driftwood from my beach.

the card is created with cardstock from an old photo album,and I also used the -see through-paper that stayes between the pages- on top is a piece from an old ledger book and a real old photo- the leafe is a dryed baby oak leafe.


This first one from my sweet friend from The Nederland   Yvonne   It   is the most beautiful heart made as a card to open up.

Se the gorgeous rose she made and added outside with the fragile and lovely lace.
And inside the dearest angel, and her sweet wish, -with more laces ,flowers and bling.
It is so fabolous,and I love it  Yvonne- Thankyou dear-from my heart, you are a fantastic artist

Isen`t it pretty with all the little details.

Nellie I have known for many,many years now, and we are good friends.
This wonderful woman and fantastic artist send me one of her soldered hangers,with the sweetest little angel.Only the soldered piece messures 18 cm, and then comes the old fragile beautiful fabric .

See the beautiful quote she wrote on the back.
Thankyou dear Nellie, I treasure it so much.

And this darling little baby boot- very old and worn is from a dear danish friend Solvejg.
She found this lonely little sweet thing in a shop in Copenhagen ,and brought it back to here, to give to me for christmas. Do you think I love It ??? I surely do.
Thankyou so much Solvejg

How are you doing dear friends here in the first   week in the new year ?
I hope good, and sends you hugs and love.

Kære Dorthe.

Hvilket bedårende hjerte du har fået lavet dig som den første ting i det nye år. Jeg kan rigtig godt lide, at du har brugt så mange forskellige materialer. Det er virkelig interessant!
Jeg har fået årets første eksamen overstået, hvilket var en dejlig lettelse. Nu vil jeg slappe lidt af, inden jeg skal forberede mig til den næste.

Varme knus i den kolde tid til dig fra mig.

Rhonda said...

Well, Dorthe, you must clean your studio more often because that heart creation is BEAUTIFUL. Sweet work. Your card is awesome, too!

Your gifts are so lovely!

Happy New Year and talk to you soon!

Kære Dorte, dejlige inspirerende vintage billeder, men den lille knapstøvle du har fået af Solvejg er da ikke til at stå for, jeg har et par sko, fra samme tid, der ligner den. v.h. morkaren.

Hi Dorthe- you are certainly starting out the new year in great style with your newest creation. I love the little pocket that holds the driftwood- such a special touch. Driftwood makes my heart sing!

You've received such wonderful gifts this year- I know you treasure each one-- and your friends.

It will take more than a little clean up in my Sacred Yarn room--- I'm in the middle of making 30 some nests and I'm slinging yarns everywhere!

Love you-
