Start of a new week!! 
Time to show a few new creations!

This is a card for a very dear friend, I so hope she will like it-
the little girl is my last purchased image, from Paper Whimsy-
isen`t she lovely?

A romantic lacy hearth in nature colours,which I love,
even I try now and then to add more colours to my creations,
 this is what I alwayes returns to .

Roses from the garden- isen`t it funny they are from the same bush?
They start as the soft orange ,and ends up white with pink dots- 
Nature is truly amazing!

Photo from my garden, with a chopped wooden stack -some of my husbonds
many and hard works ,here on this big soil.

Sweeties, I wish you all a wonderful new week, filled with 
hopes and dreams, love and happines.

From me a big hug -
Love, Dorthe

ich wünsche dir eine schöne Woche

Hello Dorthe,
You card is so pretty, I love those soft shades of white and cream.
That wood pile should keep you cosy and warm through the winter.

Здравей Дороти, чудесни творения! Много интересни рози, не съм виждала такива преди. На въпроса ти в моя блог ще ти кажа, че не знам точно какъв сорт са тези рози. Не миришат, но пък са много красиви.
Хубава и успешна седмица от мен.
Прегръдки Нели.

Kære Dorte, jeg viste ikke du lavede kort, men hvor er det sødt, og dit "blondehjerte" er meget smukt, har du grønne fingre? Den hvide rose med "blodstænk" er da helt utrolig. Og hvis det er jeres brændestak kommer i da ikke til at fryse til vinter. Jeg håber du kan læse dette, jeg har lige købt mig en i Pat, og jeg er ved finde ud af hvordan sådan en virker. Knus morkaren.

Hi Dorthe,
This is such a beautiful card. I love how you use the soft, muted tones.
I've never seen roses like yours, very pretty.

Now that's what I call a wood pile.
I think you'll be cozy warm when the cold weather comes.


Hopemore Studio said...

That card is beautiful and the heart charming. The roses are like fall leaves they have a second round of beauty. Can I borrow your dear husband I would love to move all the wood we stacked this spring, looks like he is just the man I need...haha.

suziqu's thread works said...

Hello my Dear Friend,
Those images you have chosen to create such a beautiful card and heart are so perfectly stunning. Love them both!
Lucky is the friend receiving these beautiful creations!
That rose is so unusual. Love it when you get so many variations in shades from the one rose!
Oh my goodness that wood pile represents such a lot of chopping and splitting sweetie. Henning is amazing what he achieves with the limited use of his hands.
Hope your week is full of wonder, joy and lots of shoppers buying!
Love you friend,
Suzy with sunshine hugs,

Charlene said...

I love the beautiful card you made for your friend. The yummy laces & trims!!!! And the photo is sweet. What would we do without Paper Whimsy? Have a wonderful week.

Lisa Graham said...

Lovely creations Dorthe! If you were to fill an entire room with your lacy art work it would be like walking on a Victorian Cloud. So so pretty!

Beautiful card!

Erika said...

Thank you, dear Dorthe! I wish you all things too! Wunderschöne Karten hast Du kreiert. Sicher wird sich Deine Freundin sehr freuen :) Und Deine Rosen sind übermütig. Ja, hier blühen auch noch welche. Ich schneide meine Rosen nicht, damit die Vögel im Winter die Hagebutten essen können. Trotzdem blühen auch hier einige noch. Liebe Grüsse zu Dir dearest Dorthe und hugs von Erika

Hello dear Dorthe, your creation is beautiful and your friend will certainly love it. Your use of lace and photos together is pure magic. I adore the heart! Have a wonderful week.


Chenille Cottage said...

Dearest Dorothe,
You have been busy creating such lovely lacey keepsakes. You always add so many delicate touches to each one of your creations. I love your dreamy heart with the precious little lady stitched so sweetly. Your friend is going to treasure your lovingly crafted card. What a beautiful image.

Thank you for sharing scenes from your yard...Your sweet roses and your hubby's amazing wood pile.
You are such a dear friend...I am grateful to have you in my life!
Blessings and hugs across the miles,
Carolynn xoxo

Dear Dorthe,

The card is so sweet and the little girl, so cute and precious.
How pretty your roses are and lovely that they change colour.
the wood will be wonderful to keep you warm in winter.

happy new week

Sandy said...

Oh Sweetie your friend will love this.
So so wonderful piece and dreamy.
I love all your wonderful work.
Inspire me for fabric art.
Have a sunny day Sweetie.

June said...

Hello dearest Dorthe. I love your beautiful heart and card that you have made for your friend. She will just love it!
Yes, nature is amazing and surprises us all the time : )

I sure wish that big stack of wood was at my house Dorthe. We haven't even started to gather ours for Winter. I must show this to Dale to get him motivated.
hugs from here...

JansArtyJunk said...

Wow...your friend will love these!!...I ADORE your make such beautiful are so talented Dorthe!

Hello dear Dorthe
Oh the lucky friend who will receive your beautiful card. It has such a sweet image set in a collage of wonderful pieces of lace - you are so clever!

I love the colours you use in your heart too - the varied shades of white and cream.

Beautiful roses.
I saw those wood stacks when I was in France! House owners in the villages are allowed to have a certain amount of wood from the local forests each year - a benefit of living in a socialist country!

Enjoy your days dear Dorthe

Sarina said...

A lovely card,Dorthe, but the haert is stunnin, love it!!!.Have a nice week, dear Dorthe,


Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Hi sweetie, I had already written a comment this morning but then we lost our internet access for some hours and it was gone. Now I try again and hope for the best ... :-).
The heart and the card are both gorgeous with such lovely images and lots of pretty laces.
That's really an amazing rose. We don't have any roses blooming here anymore. It had been too hot for the last couple of months.
You're prepared for winter very well with that huge stack of fire wood. Hopefully it will take some time until you'll need it.
Have a great afternoon, dearest Dorthe :-)!
Big hugs og mange kys,

Pretty Ragged Threads said...

Both beautiful creations, but the heart is my favorite. Love it.

Dorthe Dear your creations are so beautiful and lacilicious. Roses are so amazing...we have some that turn colors after blooming. Kudos to husband for all his hard work. Blissful week to you...

Hello Dorthe! Both pieces are just beautiful, I always find myself drawn to the soothing neutrals also. The heart is really lovely. Happy Belated Birthday, I hope it was as fabulous as you are! t.xoxox

sharon said...

Your fabric collages are so beautiful Dorthe, you always show your best in whites! Sending hugs from afar!

Gaby Bee said...

Both pieces are simply wonderful, but my favorite is the heart!
Your roses are absolutely amazing my dear!!!

I have loved seeing all your new creations now that I'm back. You got so much done ... you are as busy as a bee:)


Lululiz said...

I am so impressed by your husband's wood stack. It is huge! Even the French would be proud of that, and they all have big wood stacks around here.
You have kept your hands busy, Dorthe, the collage card and the heart are so beautiful. I lvoe your work.
The roses are so sweet, gorgeous colours, both at the start and how they finish up. My roses have started blossoming again as well after I deadheaded them a little while ago.

~*~Patty S said...

You are ready for colder weather and that very fine stack of wood...your husband outdid himself :)

Your color palette is so pleasing Dorthe and the way you layer the precious ingredients that you use draws me in for a closer look ...

The golden piece (a bead perhaps?) on the Paper Whimsy piece adds such an interesting touch....heart shapes always speak to me

AND your roses are proof that Mother Nature is full of surprises and truly amazing - gorgeous!


Hearts Turned said...

Such a beautiful card, sweet Dorthe--your friend will love it!

That's quite an impressive woodpile! What a hardworking man your husband is!

Wishing you the loveliest day, dear friend!


Ephemera said...

Hi Dorthe, truly exquisite creations, the little girl is beautiful as are your gorgeous roses, I adore the fragrance of fresh roses. Have a lovely day. xx

Guriana said...

Dear Dorthe, lovely creations...especially the heart!!:))


mette laumann said...

Hej du skønne
Sikke et arb. Med alt det brande men det ser super flot ud når det står så sirligt.
Hvor fantastisk med med så dejlig en rose lige til at tage med ind at pynte med men det er jeg heller ikke i tvivl om at du lige så såre du kan .
Nu kan vi snart tælle ned til uge 42 så kommer jeg og kigger meget mere på alle de smukke hjerter og fine kort du har gang i .
Kram og knus Mette

Dorthe, the card is beauty to behold. The image is delightful and the way you used it on this card makes it so special, then the heart. Whoever receives those gifts, their heart will melt.
Such beautiful colours in the roses.
Your garden must be very special.

Viola said...

Ooooch, da hast Du aber wieder tolle Creationen geschaffen. Einfach wunderschön!!Und Deine Rosen sehen auch ganz klasse aus! :o)

Vicki Boster said...

Oh my Dorthe-- you make such beautiful cards-- the lace and textures -- the rose petals-- such amazing creations with the most lovely embellishments. I'm sure your friend will be thrilled to receive this art from your heart--
That incredible wood pile!!! Your husband has indeed been busy-- such a big job! You will be thankful for all of his hard work this winter!!


Jillayne said...

Your card is so pretty Dorthe - I love the image of the little girl sitting so quietly. All of your embellishments add such lovely detail!
And the woodpile - now that's a woodpile! We used to have to chop wood for our furnace and I remember how much work it was to bring in enough wood to last for the whole winter - what a job!
You'll stay nice and warm though, on all those dark and cold evenings - so cozy is wood heat.
A big hug back from me,
