As I am running my shop, here where I live, all year round, I have already
for more that a months been creating for christmas, which
means mostly dolls and santas--
But in between I get so exited about doing 
something in paper and fabric, too, -so when I a few dayes ago, visited Sandy
and saw her most beautiful christmas ornaments, I was so inspired and had to
make my own version of the angel wings she showed.
Here it is ! 
I used the same lovely girl image ,as on some of my cards,
and hang it all on top of a tag, from where you can take it off again, if you prefer the wing
allone , when decorating.
Thankyou dear Sandy, for being such an inspiration ,to me and many others (i`m sure) ,
your art is just amazingly beautiful.

Well thought you should also see one of my santas!

Here he is, standing 45 cm.high, dressed in lovely red coat,
and real fox fur.-ofcourse he brings little goodies!

Tomorrow I`m off, to spend the weekend with my daughter and her 
dear family. She invited me, as a late birthday gift, to  hear and see
MADAME BUTTERFLY  ( only the two of us )
in the Danish Opera House ,and I`m so exited about it, as I have, not been in
this new building yet.

Dosen`t it look fantastic! (photo lend from Wikipedia)

So dear friends, see you again monday , when home again,
I hope your weekend will be happy, and filled with 
many moments to treasure.

Hugs and love, Dorthe

Hi Dorthe, Wishing you a wonderful time with your daughter. How fabulous!!
Your Christmas creations are gorgeous and I think holiday is on the mind of most everyday.
I have been creating Christmas since last July. LOL I think I will just try and keep it going year round, put aside for the shop and then hopefully be prepared next year. It seems I never really get complete all that I want to do. Oh well, that's life!!

I adore your santa. His face is darling. And the wing tag just speaks to the heart. Your talents for gorgeous are incredible my friend.
Have fun with your daughter.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

My Dearest friend, Dorthe
What a sweet card you made inspired by Sandy - I love her wings!
She has inspired me also and mine is almost finished too!
So much amazing work you have put into Father Christmas - the details in his clothing, fur trimming and toys held in his hands as well as the wonderful bright expression in his eyes are all just fantastic - like your imagination too!
Sending you lots of Christmas creation hugs and love,
