I love creating hearts and here is a new one I just finished.
As alwayes with my loved old laces and fabrics, and with 
a lovely old image .
I created the lace rose and the flower ,and handsewed it all to 
the heart.

Giving and recieving gifts, are like having and giving
a warm hug from,and to friends, and I love to do that.
This is on its way to someone special.

Also today I want to show you a most gorgeous gift I recieved 
from my dear friend MARIE

Look what she created for me, a beautiful and stunning
necklace. So sweetly presented on her dear tag.

And here it is ,so wonderful with the cross hanging from a
crystal pearl , the old heart where I can tug a photo of my dear Mother,
and the sweet tiny madonna charm.  
I love the pearls and the old watch chains dearest Marie used to
make the chain, and I love wearing my new necklace. 


I dearly hope some of you don`t think, me showing my beautiful gifts from friends, 
is done to boast.... as it is far from that!!!!
It is my way of honoring these generous loving persons and like
that ,also saying thank you ,one more time.!!!!!!

Here another card I created for a birthday "child" from blogland,
I used old and new papers, a cardstock frame , corrugated cardboard,
a rose, and stamp.
I hope she will like it!!

Sunday is already almost over here, we had a dramatically
rain shower, but now the pale sun is back again :-)

I hope your sunday has been and is lovely and happy, and 
wishes you a beautiful new week.

With love and hugs
