I made my first card for this years christmas!
Some time ago I saw a danish blogger using those lovely deer`s in a beautiful card,
and so wanted to have this die myself, so after asking for help from my 
FaceBook friends,- Lee wrote me an adress ,and I recieved it 
within a week for less that 100,- danish Kr. (about 15 dollars including shipping)

It is called :
Memory Box Dies, Deer Trio !
I used a beautiful card with "velvet" flowers, and added a lovely image,
some glitter and a little lace,and cheece-cloth.
Aren`t they sweet?

Here a tiny beach angel, dressed for christmas.

My dear friend Lynne,- so lovingly send me this gorgeous canvas,
isen`t is beautiful ? See the dried Hydrangea flower in the corner,
and the wonderfully stamped photo. I think Lynne is a master in stamping those -
looking like photoes- stamps- I can say it is not the most easy task :-)

The images "hides" a little pocket in whitc Lynne
sweetly tucket a :Merci greeting tag, to me.

I so love it ,-the soft colours and beautiful composition.
Thankyou my  dear lovely friend, so much, you are so kind to me, and I love
your wonderful art.

And some weeks ago ,when visiting another dear friend- LIZ -I found the most stunning 
french rosary for sale, and as I could not resist it, I ordered it at once :-)

And look what my sweet Liz, packed for me!
Little lovely envelopes, with lovely buttons- a beautiful old german porzelain doll,
the most lovely white cotton lace and the sweetest sprig of flowers.

AND this most beautiful tag, she created, with a religious theme.
I so love Liz`s gorgeous tags.

Here is the rosary!! It now hangs in my window, here where my computer is situated,
and where I can see it every day, ceveral times- it is so beautiful, and I am happy I was the first to
click the.BUY button :-)
Thankyou dearest Liz, for all the lovely extra gifts , you send me, I tresure 
our friendship very much. 

How are you all ?
I so hope life is good to you, and that your weekend will be  happy and 
beautiful .
I cross my fingers that the hurricane Sandy ,which after having hit, The Caribian,
are now  heading to the Eastern North American coast, --will not cause too major damages to the the people living there. And I send warm thoughts to my friends in that area,hoping you will be safe.

And to new followers, WELCOME,- I am happy you visits me,-
and wisches you and all my friends a happy weekend.
Hugs and love

Such a stunning Christmas card and those deer dies are just beautiful! As is the little angel!!! Beautiful gifts you received too!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend dear Dorthe, - here in Scotland it is bitterly cold and I am guessing it will be the same in Denmark, - so stay warm and cozy!!

suziqu's thread works said...

Hello my Dear far away Friend, Dorthe,
Such a beautiful Christmas Card that you have created with those three dimensional deer - Oh the effect looks so great!
Oh what a sweet beachie angel - gorgeous as always and love her!

Isn't Lynne an angel too for sending such a lovely card - her stamping is so well done - it is hard to believe it is a stamp at all!

And the rosary dear friend - well that is to die for - I am so glad it is resting in your window to view every day sparkling at you! Not to mention those little extra treasures in the packet from Liz including that amazing tag! Lucky girl!!!

Sending some sparkling love to my angel too!

Здравей скъпа Дороти, коледната ти картичка е прекрасна и вълшебна. Аз вече нямам търпение за коледа и толкова се радвам, когато видя коледни украси. Много ме вдъхнови.
Прегръдки и хубав уикенд от мен.

Dearest Dorthe
That is such a sweet Christmas card - I LOve your reindeer stamps and all you have done.
I am in love with your Christmas Angel - she is soooo adorable.

The Rosary you got from Liz is very special. I have one which belonged to my mother and another that was my Fathers, they are two of my treasures I hold very dear to me.

I always love it when I find a comment on my blog from you dear Dorthe - it's lovely knowing I have a friend like you all the way from Denmark!!!

enjoy your weekend

Hello dear Dorthe, Your Christmas card is stunning and the deer add such a lovely touch. Your gifts from Liz are so precious and packaged with so much love. I am at the eye of the Storm Sandy and getting ready for it right now. I am praying it doesn't cause terrible damage. Thank you for sending your prayers our way dear friend.

morkaren said...

Hej Dorte, sikken et dejligt julekort du har lavet, jeg sidder også og er ved at gå "så småt i gang" og du er da heldig med alle dine søde venner der sender fine ting til dig, men jeg er overbevist om der går lige så meget den modsatte vej. knus morkaren.

Rhonda said...

All of this is so beautiful! You post the most beautiful creations ever!

I agree with you, Dorthe, I sure hope that hurricane stays away from the east coast.

Happy weekend and create away!

Terri said...

Hello Dorthe,
I am loving your first Christmas card of the year! The little dear are so sweet and really add a fabulous element to your design.
Your Christmas Angel is so sweet! I love that she is made from some driftwood.
All your gifts are lovely as well. You are very blessed with gifts!
Your new rosary is gorgeous! So glad you were the first to find it.
I live in North Carolina, and we are experiencing a cold, windy, rainy day here as Sandy passes by our coastline about 2 hours away. Hopefully she will be merciful and not do much damage along the seaboard up the coast.
Thank you for your good wishes!

Kære Dorthe.

Ja, lige pludselig står december og julen jo for døren, og man skal lave en masse forberedelser. Dit julekort er yndigt, og din engel er så bedårende! Jeg er vild med, hvordan du har lavet hendes arme. Du ved jo efterhånden godt, hvor vild jeg er med kombinationen af det rå og det yndige. :-)

Her står den på eksamensforberedelser, så jeg har nok om ørerne, men forsøger alligevel at presse noget kreativt ind i hverdagen. Det betyder jo meget for mig.

Også en tak for din hjælp ang. pladsproblemerne på min blog. Jeg håber at have fået det løst nu.

Knus, Emilie.

Bente said...

Julekortet er helt nydelig, Dorthe. Den engelen var også kjempesøt. Nydelig tags og de små konvoluttene var så nydelige.

Ja, her har vi fått mye snø og det er veeeldig tidlig med slike store mengder med snø så tidlig.

Ønsker deg ei fin ny uke, Dorthe.
