Simply Neutrals #12 , Winter girl, Paperangel, and beautiful gifts !!

The other years I have made winter girls, in fabric, but this year I
chose to do some in white, not spun wool.

She is dressed in old lace, and knit, and holds a little
winter greenery and a heart.

This most beautiful card I recieved some time ago, from one of my dearest friends
I love her style , and wonderful art. 

See  the fantastic details here!! Such a beautiful card !!

Also I received this wonderful bunch of  Relics & Artefacts pieces,
which Lynne bought , --they are produced by Prima ,for Sandra Evertson, and 
you may remember the heart I coated with silver leaves, which also was
a gift from this fantastic stash !!

Thank you my dear Lynne, it was such a gorgeous gift, dear friend.

And latest my handmade roses, not really finished, yet, and a little paper folded angel ,
I hope you enjoyed my number 11 post of Neutrals, and that 
you will visit our lovely hostess Wendy  http://appleapricot.blogspot.dk/ and all the others
taking part in this lovely party !!

Wishing you all a safe and happy week.

Hugs and love, Dorthe

Even my head  is still  filled with the thoughts,and  the difficulty in
understanding ,what happened in Paris last  friday, 
and feeling so much,  with all those whom lost dear family members and friends,

I have chosen to post a little love here on dear Wendy`s
11 Simply Neutrals.

Because only with the heart we can change , what is causing
 fear ,and no hope for tomorrow, in so many countries!!

So here is my little heart of hope,

and my angel ,praying for the many whom lost their lives in Paris,
and many other countries .

And some simple beauty from my everyday,
for which I`m so grateful.

And as my dear friend Suzy, also write,.... I`m deeply
grateful for the many friends I have all over the world,
and I wish you all , piece , safety and blessings.

Thank you again dear Wendy, for making it possible for me
to join this loving circle of people, showing their beautiful world !!

Hugs and love Dorthe

I have made so many paper cards , so now it
is time for using my fabrics and laces, for the last
christmas cards !

This one with the lovely lady in black and white ,transferred
to muslin,and with laces from my stash, is also perfect for,
Wens  wonderful Natural Party

I used a stamp for the text , little flowers,and pieces from
my scratch box !!!

This rock in my garden has been handled with care by
my German  friend , artist Matthiass Masswig

and some of my husbond `s chopped wood, stacked inside !!

Another card ,very simple , with an embossed background,
handcut white woolen felt flower leaves, and a little
silver bling,- can I say simple beauty !!


Thank you Wendy for another week, with SIMPLY NEUTRALS 
and for showing my silver cross on your beautiful blog, this week, sweetie .

Hugs and love ,to you all out there

First I will show you a cross I made the other day.
I had  this wooden cross cut out for a long time , and
finding it late October, naturally made me wish for a 
festive christmas cross, so I started with stenciling on top of
the whitepainted cross, then added silver paint and silver leafe
in the tips, and a faux  Cameo in the center.
The roses are handmade, too 

Here you see the "cameo" with silver glitter around !!

The next neutral is another winter card, using the
wonderful scate die with embossed background, fur,and a glitter
snowflake .

The glitter is not seen real well here !!

Lastly a little angel, created for my very dear friend,
using a paper pulp head ,bought on Etsy, I used an old
handkerchief for her dress, and created wings of papers and lace .

I painted the face minimalistic ,and her hair too.

I hope you like my neutrals listed this week, which I`m
