But first I want to tell what I experiensed yesterday ,reading Tina`s blog :
From March first , Google Friends Connect is no more supporting  the NON Google community-that means that everyone not having a  blogspot .com blog will not be able to follow  via Google connect- --also maybe it will later disappear from ---which means there will also not be any blog list!

SO IF YOU STILL WANT TO BE ABLE TO FOLLOW ME AND EACH OTHER ,all you have to do is connect to the new followers tool, -that you see on my left sidebar, just on top of the Google one.
Just sign in and create your own account- it is all free-  you simple click "follow me" at the new "LINKY "tool--and after having created an account yourself, you can follow me and everyone else connecting to LINKY.

And now to the Valentine swap, which Kimberly from Art Joy Stuff hosted, and sweetly invited me to take part in.

We were to make 5 ATC`s to send to her, and then she  would mix and match-and return 5 others to each participant.

This is a collage of the five I made and send along.

------------- this is number 6--six because  I made one extra for Kimberly :)

And this sweet package is the one holding Kimberly`s ATC

Here is another sweet plastic bag holding another one, and following are the ones I recieved.

this is from  ERICA from Zunkychic
isen`t it the sweetest little angel

Marlene from Uniquelyella made this beauty- my photo does not show all the lovely glitter.

made this sweet one, with a lovely rose border

And from Sylvia from Little Treasures- this cute clown dacing along-

and from Kimberly this lovely fairy tag--love the flowers and her arrow ,and a wonderful domino charm.
Thankyou to you all, I enjoyed partisipating in this "love" swap- and I love all the pretty ATC`s I recieved.
Thankyou Kimberly for hosting and for your lovely extra charm gift.

to you dear friends.

My Dear Sweet Dorthe
What a wonderful idea this swap! and you have made some gorgeous tags - my favourite is the fourth one as you know how much I love roses but the last little gift to Kimberly is also beautiful.
The girls have made some beautiful tags here - so joyful with such sweet images!
I am sorry to hear about Google Friend Connect. I am still waiting to hear from Linky about trying to set up an account.
Hope your week is full of joy and happiness with some sun rays showing through - if not, my sweet friend, I shall send more than you will need from here!
Much love and many big hugs,

Oh, Dortle, Such beautiful things. I love Valentine swaps!

Thank you for your dear note. Guess what? Jud is on home hospice so he gets to stay here. We will have a nurse, doctor and social worker come here to help us. Eventually we will much our beds downstairs to a bigger room. They will be on call 24 hours a day and come out if we need them. If we have to, we can hire twenty-four hour nursing help. And if that isn't enough, we can put him into residential hospice. So....there are so many options. He also gets massage, music therapy and many other good things. We are so grateful!
It still is so hard and requiring everything I have but it is a sacred time, too.
Big hugs,

Flotte, flotte Valentinscollager/-kreationer.
Og tak for tippet ang. Google Friends Connect. Sikken noget rod. Mon ikke Google skyder sig selv i foden med dette tiltag...?
Ha' en rigtig dejlig uge!
