Many of my blogging friends have started to use a little
more colour in their creations, and I believe it is contagious!!

As you can see I`m on the wagon ,too, even I still, stay in my 
comfort zone, of the favorite colours !!
I loved to use my new stencils here, from Tim Holz 
from where both the trellis and the roses comes!
The butterfly is an old Martha Steward punch!

I also used paper napkins, and the sweet bird is a gift from my
thank you my dear!!
The wooden sign is a garden flower stick I painted and stamped.
And as alwayes a little lace is added !

I have a very dear friend Lynne ,-
and she lovingly send me this wonderful comfort gifts ,not long ago.

A beautiful, nature card/ hanger kept in white, brown and blue. I have struggled
to get the colours right, but had to give up,-Lynne`s colours are
softer and a lighter blue, so my photoes does not give justice to
the real tones !!. All I can say is, that it is so very beautiful !!

The lovely stamp, is on a thin piece of wood, and the flowers are 
stamped on a white painted piece of paper ,layered on burlap, which again 
rests on top of corrugated cardboard .
See the driftwood from where it hangs,-it could be one I have send Lynne, once !!
We both love driftwood.

Together with the hanger, were these wonderful sticks with 
sweet words on, They will soon be used, 
and even also a little paper bag filled with metal charms- don`t 
you love the bees ?? 
Thank you so much my  dear Lynne for your gifts and
for your treasured friendship.

From another dear friend  Sherry
I recieved this wonderful birthday card ( in advance )  with a sweet
spring coloured bird on a piece of fabric.

when opening up the card, I found another beautiful bird, holding one
of Sherry`s wonderful dragonflyes!

It is a real lovely summer charm, which can hang in necklaces or adorn
many other things. I love the head pearl, Sherry used, as it looks like eyes and mouth :-)
and the colours on both card and charm so filled with joyfilled spring!

Thank you very much ,dear Sherry, you are always so generous, and kind, and 
always thinking of others !!


To everyone visiting me,- I thank you very much  , it means a lot to me, to read your
comments, and I love visiting back, !!
I have had many warm comments on my last post where I mentioned me missing
bloggers whom stopped to blog, and to comment.
Thank you to all my loyal and sweet friends, and to all of you, that I know visits
whenever time and life allows , you are all importent to me.


Happy sunday,--
hugs and love from Dorthe

Hello my Summer (and all year round friend) Dorthe,

The colors in your tag are so beautiful, light and Summery using the Tim Holtz roses and stencils along with the napkin bird from Marie. Very pretty indeed!
Lynne's gifts are also gorgeous in shades of blue with such an amazing stamp in the collage. I know you will be busy using her little worded tags and metal charms! - Just charming and the little bees are beautiful!
It certainly feels like Spring and Summer on your island now and receiving this pretty
bird card from Sherry just typifies the bird song around you at the moment!

Sending much Summer love and hugs from here,

Dear Dorthe, yes, it was a piece of driftwood you gifted to me!
I love your tag with the bolder colours. Dorthe, would we ever believe that you and I would begin to work with bolder colours?!!! Isn't it amazing and yes, it is contagious and you begin to discover something new. I do not always enjoy what I create with bold colours but I am enjoying playing. Your tag is so pretty with the bird and sweet butterfly.
Goodnight my friend. It has been so lovely to visit you this evening, it is only your Blog I managed to visit, I had hoped to spend time with other friends, maybe another day.
Have a lovely weekend,

June said...

Dorthe, your tag is beautiful. It looks like the colors of summer to me, as the roses are blooming now. You have layered beautiful elements together for another lovely work of art.
Your gifts from your friends are beautiful as well, my dear.
How blessed you are!

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday to you, dearest Dorthe. I wish you health, luck and happiness, sweet friend. I hope you are having a wonderful day with sunshine and your loved ones. My card to you got sent out to late to arrive in time. Hopefully you will receive it soon though.
I have just sent you an email to both of your email-adresses to see if you get them.

Your tag is indeed colorful and very pretty. Maybe we all need a break from working with neutrals only. Lynne and Sherry have sent you some lovely gifts.

Have a most wonderful day :)!

I have been enjoying working with brighter colours myself lately - it's such a joy to create something bright and cheery. I love the pink colour you chose to use Dorthe - very beautiful!
As always, your gifts are lovely... The charm from Sherry is so sweet - what a lovely reminder of summer days!
