Dearest friends- I`m so thankfull for all your kind and sweet ,well wishes send to me
those last 2 weeks ,where I have been under the weather with a nasty flu/ cold-that still
haven`t left me ,-only been a bit better,- as my fever has gone, and the coughing is not
as persistent those last dayes.


This morning when visiting  NANCY`s
14 HEARTS  (free tutorials )
she made some sweetest little hearts  (go to check it out)-and for the first
time in those weeks, I was inspired to make my own little creation.

As I`m still not in my shop / workroom, I had to deal with the little materials I have inside here,
so the heart is not at all like nancy`s . But you inspired me dear friend, thank`s for that!
I used a Paper Whimsy image, and a piece also from a P.W. sheet called :The Riddle.
The butterfly is punshed with Martha Stewarts punch-and the little hearts stamped on 
a tea bag paper.

You have all made me smile and feel good ,reading your greetings,
and I feel blessed with so many dear friends.

Love and hugs,Dorthe

Dear Dorthe...I'm glad you seem to have "turned the corner" and are feeling better - and wanting to CREATE! That's a very good sign - the new heart is a beauty - love that butterfly up by her lovely face! Stay WELL, my friend...XOXOXO Tanya

Liebe Freundin Dorthe!
Ich hoffe, Dein Wochenende war/ ist schön. Du warst kreativ, das lässt ein wenig hoffen, dass es Dir besser geht.
Vielen Dank für Deinen Besuch auf meinem Blog. Ich freue mich immer so sehr über Deine lieben Worte.

Die letzten Tage hier waren grau und auch voller Regen. Nun ist es Regen und Schnee. Ich hoffe, dass die Sonne bald für uns scheinen wird.
Ich wünsche Dir weiter gute Besserung, dass die Lebensfreude wächst und Deine Seele lächelt.
Wirst Du morgen wieder in Deinem Studio/ Laden sein? Oder geht es noch nicht. Ich hoffe, es hilft Dir beim Gesundwerden.

Allerliebste Grüße und Küsse zu Dir und ich sende Dir viele Knuddel :)
Deine Erika

Dear Dorthe,
You poor dear girl. I so hope you are feeling better soon. We are a pair as I have been so sick with the flu too. I am doing a bit better, but now, I have pleurisy in my lungs and it is going to take time with rest to heal.
Thank you for stopping by with your well wishes too.
Sending you hugs for better days ahead.
Get well soon my friend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Dear Dorthe,

It is a nasty flu.We have had it all here in the family.I really hope, you will feel better real soon.Coughing is so tiring.


Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.
Hvor er det irriterende for dig, at du sådan skal blive ved med at døje med forkølelse og sygdom. Nu må det da få en ende! Jeg vil ønske dig alt muligt god bedring og en rigtig god kommende uge.
Min hverdag begynder for alvor igen i morgen, mandag, hvor det er tilbage til studiebøgerne.
Knus, Emilie.

Minna Perälä said...

Iam happy you are feeling better now!
We got a terrible flu too after coming from Island. I am much better now and hopefully my husband also soon. I love your little heart. The colours beige and light blue go so well together. You Inspired me with your altered tins a while ago so much, that I have been burning several tinboxes at our fireplace this weekend. It´s exciting how every little box cover look different when you take it out from the owen

Have a wonderful week!

Ak ja Dorte, den influenza er så svær at komme af med, jeg føler det har varet hele januar, og selv om jeg er blevet rask har jeg stadig mine "snot ture" hver morgen og hoste når jeg går i seng, jeg hørte i radioen at det skyldes den sidste sommer hvor vi fik for lidt sol, og det skal sku nok passe. sødt hjerte du har lavet, jeg blev helt forbavset, jeg er jo ikke vandt til papirarbejde fra dig. knus morkaren.

Draffin Bears said...

Dear Dorthe,

So glad to hear that you are feeling a little better and it seems to be a horrible flu and everywhere.
So many of my blog friends have had something similar.
Must have been lovely back creating and adore the sweet heart you made.

Do look after your sweet self and hope you feel really well again

JoAnne said...

Sending healing wishes and love your way Dorthe. Keep feeling better! xo

Astrid Maclean said...

So glad to hear you are at least feeling a little bit better dear Dorthe and your heart is so, so beautiful! I love that sweet paper Whimsy image and what you have done with it is just stunning!!! Hopefully the weather will soon get a bit more Springlike in Denmark too. I think everyone in our parts of the world is just longing for some sunshine to make us feel better..... Hope you'll keep recovering!!

butterfly said...

What a beautiful little creation... I do hope it's the sign that you're on your way to feeling better, and ready to return to full crafting energy. In the meantime, thank you for your visits and lovely comments - so kind to take the time when you're feeling unwell. Wishes for a speedy recovery,
Alison xx

Bente said...

Heia Dorthe. Så godt at du føler deg bedre. Den er tøff, denne influensaen i vinter.

Nydelig hjerte du har laget.

God klem fra meg

Nita Jo said...

Dorthe, I'm so sorry to hear you haven't been well. Hoping you have a complete recovery very soon! I have not been blogging much this past year, and I have missed keeping up with your blog. I see your creativity continues, and am enjoying catching up with you! Best wishes!

This year's flu and colds are quite nasty. I am glad you are almost better, it's been quite a while. Take care and enjoy making more beautiful hearts. xox

Terri said...

YAY, yay yay!!!!!
I was beginning to get really worried!
I am so glad to hear from you that you are at least starting to recover. I am hoping that you only continue to get better and that your cough heals completely.
Wonderful that you felt up to a little art time. Your heart is very romantic! I love the softness of it.
Can you send me your address again?

Good evening my dear sweet friend,
It is fantastic to see that you have been feeling up to creating again and I couldn't think of a more appropriate choice to get you back in the creative spirit again!
What a darling little heart with such a gorgeous image embellished with that sweet butterfly, some string and netting all in pretty tones of blue and brown.
"Go slowly - come back quickly" goes the saying and sending much love and big hugs with it!

Netty said...

so pleased to hear you are feeling a lot better Dorthe.
Loving your beautiful heart. Hugs Annette x

marda said...

Glad you are feeling better, despite the persistent cough..hopefully that won't be for much longer. Your heart is just perfect. I'm enjoying Nancy's 14 hearts tutorials too. But you're ahead of me.. and I'm not sick!!!!
Keep on the mend.

Sandy said...

Hi Sweetie I´m so happy that you are back.
You made a wonderful and lovely heart.
Absolutely gorgeous.

Dear Dorthe, the heart is really delightful! Well done my friend.
I'm glad you feel a bit better.
Be careful and please do slow.

Lynn said...

Happy to hear you are feeling better Dorthe, very pretty heart, great way to get back into creating again :)

Mom E. said...

I am so glad you are continuing to improve. My daughter and her 8 month old are still in the thick of this flu...not fun...Your blue heart is gorgeous...all your work is so inspiring. I may have to get myself a few new stamp cutouts! I don't have any of those!
But YOUR ACTUAL heart is also beautiful. You are such a thoughtful sweet gal, I can tell by all of your posts....Hugs to YOUR HEART, from mine!

Jayne said...

So glad you are on the mend Dorthe. That heart is just beautiful. Jaynex

Shane Pollard said...

Hello dear Dorthe

Sending you love and healing thoughts from New Zealand.
Nancy will be thrilled she inspired you to create such a sweet Valentine card!

Keep warm and rest - don't forget the lemon, honey and garlic!!!
Shane ♥

The Rustic Victorian said...

Hi Dorothe,
It is good to hear your improving, it takes weeks to feel normal, we had it too.
Soon it will be spring and warming up. Your heart is so pretty, I will have to visit Nancy.

AppleApricot Wen said...

Hello dear, I'm happy to hear from you again. But I do hope you'll feel much better soon. Your heart is gorgeous. I love the idea of stamping on tea bag paper, that's great recycling! We drink herbal teas here almost every day, so that's a lot of papers in the trash which could far better be used in crafting. That's one of the things I find so inspiring in you, that you use things others might just throw away or neglect.

Wishing you a wonderful and healthy day!
Hugs, Wendy

Thanks for the visit. I love your interpretation of Nancy's heart. Hope you feel better!

mette laumann said...

Hej søde Dorthe

Har du været syg søde ? Håber du er ok nu .
Gode tanker til dig og masser af kys og knus herfra .

~*~Patty S said...

happy to hear you are feeling somewhat better dear Dorthe!

the heart you created (isn't Nancy wonderful and generous!!!) is precious in every know I looked extra close at the heart tea paper AND the tuille/netting you used is extra special too!

I hope to create something again soon ... hugs to you!

Mosaic Magpie said...

Glad to hear you are a bit better...continue taking care and get plenty of rest...that flu can hang on for a couple of weeks.

Jillayne said...

Wonderful to hear you are feeling better Dorthe - you were ill for a long time and I was beginning to worry that you had the terrible flu that has been going all around North America.
Your little heart is lovely and doesn't look like it's lacking anything at all - so very sweet. You always make such beautiful little things Dorthe!
