Yes please have a look over at the wonderful party at:


Here I will show you a summerday in the garden card,
all in neutral tones, and with a very sweet image from Graphicsfairy.

I used a paperclay piece on top, from a mould, and the stencils : brickstones, and
 butterfly `s from Thats Crafty,( dinky line- ),where you can also find the mould.

Please click the photos to see the details. 

I also want to show you a precious packet I received from my dear friend

This beautiful little bag filled with goodies, of buttons, old flower , seambinding and the lovely Charlotte wrapped in lace around a big pin.
And isen`t the bag itself stunning !!!

The sweetness below, also made as a hanger .
I love Kim`s way of creating, her lovely shabby style, and amazing
materials she always use.

 the little bag Kimberly had filled with rosemary and other 
wonderful smelling dried herbs.

Here the old button cards, and seambinding.
Can you tell I love it all, .....I DO !!!

Thank you from my heart dear Kim,  you really blessed my day !!

And to all of you I wish a wonderful week, sunny and happy.

Hugs and love
from Dorthe

Oh wow, dear Dorthe, such a gorgeous and intriguing card!! I love love love it! The image is so sweet and beautiful in itself. But the way you adorned it, like she is really enjoying a most lovely day in the garden, is so beautiful. And it tells a story, which I love! The presents you received from dear Kim are so gorgeous too. I saw them already on facebook, but now I see that she added dried herbs, such a lovely idea! Sweetie, I could change the url of your link on my blog, so that's working alright now, now worries :) Wishing you a beautiful evening and sending you big hugs, xx

What a wonderful summer garden you created, Dorthe - the brick work and that gorgeous clay moulding are fantastic, and I just love the soft warm tones of the flowers and butterflies, and of course that charming little girl.

Such a lovely packet of goodies from Kimberley too - I'm not surprised you love them all!

And you are right about the contrast of power/wealth with poverty at the Forbidden City - I had very mixed feelings - there's more about that in the post to come.

The sweetest collage and I am studying all the precious details! I love the detail you created on Laura's butterfly stencil (it's a beautiful and one of my favourite of her stencils but in your hands, wow, you take it to another level!!!) also the brick brings lovely texture to your collage and that sweet image of the girl in the garden.
Such beauty in the gifts from your dear friend and everything you love so much. Cannot wait to see what you create with everything.
wishes to you my dear friend.

Your card is so adorable Dorthe! You've been so clever with it and I love the way you have used all the different media to make some stand out and some to sit in the background. The colours are lovely and you've done a great job with it!

Kimberley's gift to you is beautiful and aren't you so lucky to have received it! ♥
