For long I have wanted to make a prayer flag, but had untill now not taken step
to do anything about it !

Then today, when visiting NANCY`s   14 Hearts no. 8 day-she made 
the most beautiful and romantic heart prayer flags, and that got me going.

So here it is ,-made from an old piece of  table cloth,on which I 
pieced the "flag" ,- on top of that a heart made from a paper napkin.

Under the heart I embossed this line of hearts, on handmade paper,
and as you see below, I was again true to my loved dried leaves.
that i love to use .
The cutest girl is a Paper Whimsy  image, and I needed a tiny piece of driftwood,too.
I stamped the : with love- and gave the leave and heart a coat of  Golden,
so it is resistant to touches and dust.

If you haven`t visited Nancy`s blog yet, go have a look ,at all her wonderfull all free tutorials,
there will be a new one every day ,untill 14/2.

Thankyou again for all your loving help,  with my problem,that luckily is solved
you are such lovely friends.

I wish you all a most wonderful weekend 
and welcome new followers , you are so appreciated,all.
Hugs and love,

Beautiful, Dorthe, the prayer flag turned out ever so well. I love seeing you using your "signature" bits, the driftwood and also the leaves, they make your pieces instantly recognisable. xxx

Dear Dorthe
You are so good at taking an idea and making it very special.
I've always admired everyone's prayer flags too.
Yours has the beautiful 'DORTHE' stamp on it – with all the subtle layering.

Wishing you a restful weekend and I hope the weather lets you have a nice walk to enjoy nature!
