First I want to show you these beautiful surprices ,that arrived from my very
Martina and I have been commenting on each other`s blogs for years, but the last half year,or so, we have also become close friends via e-mails, and I am very happy to have met this sweet and wonderful woman.

Look what a fantastic card she made me , with the girl in frame and covered with
Diamond Glace , beautiful with the butterfly and flowers, and shimmering "air" around her.

And the box, so gorgeous , you can`t see it here, but the flowers is treated so they
look almost like porzelain, and also here a sweet girl in frame ,and that beautiful old
silver brooch flower,- and bird on a branch.

Inside Martina have added a lot of wonderful laces, for me.

AND ,here was to celebrate my birthday with lights ,champagne and glasses :-)
Isen`t it a the sweetest greeting !!
Thank you, my dear ,sweet Martina, -your surprice gifts made me very happy, and I love your
beautiful sunshine gifts .

Now ,-from another very dear and very close friend  LYNNE
came a beautiful ,lovely note book . I am so in love with the romantic front ,and the painting
in the softest blue, and the stamped , bird related words.The birdstamp is 
wonderful ,-such a "fat" cutie .

The card is just adorable and lovely with the bird and text stamped on balsa wood, and the 
laces, making it so textured and beautiful.

Here is a close up from the note book, with the gorgeous flover ribbon and sweet feather.

My dear Lynne also added a huge bundle of lace and some wonderful  bark and
wooden charms in a little see through box, to me.
I`m so grateful my friend for your beautiful gifts, and for our friendship, growing every day !

I know this is a -for me-very long post, but I so much,also wanted to
show you what came from another also very , very dear and for long time, close friend,

This card is absolutely gorgeous, with Suzy using wool, papers ,fabrics ,embroidery,
and much more. I love it ,dear Suzy.

The sweetest tag-card with a serene look -beautiful!!

Also an image for me to play with -isen`t it lovely.

And here one of the stitched gifts for me, A stunning heart ,oh it
is so beautiful,- my dear friend, thank you Suzy--so filled with eternal beauty and romance.

Look at some of the amazing details, Suzy added.

The other gift ,this amazing artist friend made me, is a wonderful "doll"
So filled with gorgeous fabrics and laces to form her dress and wonderful wings.

My camera does not capture the beauty of the materials, and this angelic beauty.
So richly equipped ,in browns and dark reds, tulles and velvet -flowers and ribbons.

And on top of all this gorgeousness, Suzy also gifted me this old wonderful magazine ,-

I love it , look what fantastic old images,-exatly this period is so lovely ,and I hope to get time to read 
some of it ,as well as dwelve over the drawings.
Thank you my dearest and treasured Suzy, you so spoiled me, and filled my day with beauty .

The last photo today, shows this sunshine card, created by dear JULIA,
 Julia, pressed the flowers and added them to my birthday card, on top of
lovely papers and stamps. I love the little piece with the D on. It is very beautiful, and the pressed 
flowers still so lovely in colours .
Thank you sweetest friend, for your wonderful card, and your dear words.

I hope you were with me to the end of my post, to capture the beauty, all these wonderful
friends have created .
I feel so blessed knowing them, - and you, all.

Love and hugs ,Dorthe

Dear Dorthe, Happy Birthday and what beautiful gifts from talented friends. You are so blessed and so deserving. Each and every treasure is precious.
Hope your mother is doing better too!
Thank you for the 4th of July greeting. We are enjoying a nice holiday weekend.
Sorry you had some problems commenting before. There are still many glitches in blogland and I also have them here too. Still not receiving comments to my inbox and finding them on the dashboard instead. It has been so long and no fix in sight.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and blessings always.
