Again another beautiful Tuesday over at Wendys   SIMPLY NEUTRALS BLOG :

This week I want to show you a heart I created for Christmas present for 
some friends, a lovely neutral palette , with old laces, the Madonna
head I made myself , using paper clay, and the rolled paper, is from a
a pastor`s collected sermons ,from 1903 . It was with awe I cut into one of them, to be
reused with joy, to these presents .

The beautiful affirmation is from one of Lynne`s beautiful stamp sets,
available in That`s Crafty !! (link brings you there )

And as Easter is near  I want to show ,this gorgeous cross, which I just received from Kimberly :  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ajoy2bheld

ordered from her web shop,  ---link above !!

Isen`t it beautiful , I so love it and 
Kim`s gorgeous eye for creating with beautiful details!!

Wishing you all a beautiful rest of the week, ---from , today, rainy Bornholm.
But beauty over at Wendy`s  Simply Neutral Tuesday, will 
brighten the grey weather, I know !!

Hugs and Love

Sweet Dorthe,
You paper clay hear and decoration is exquisite! I just adore your composition on this! The sermon is so beautiful with it's script and the poinsettia, speaks for itself!So well done my friend!

Oh So happy for Gustav! How much he will see and learn already! I do not understand the need for no photos unless there is much to hide from the rest of the world. Too bad for this.
I am sure he will have fun and come back with many stories! Lucky him!
sending huge hugs my friend! Jackie xo

Hello Dorthe, Your paper clay Madonna is beautifully done, and you have arranged the collage with so many special touches. I love the roll of handwritten sermon - how wonderfully apt! It would suit for Easter just as well. Wishing you a peaceful heart,

What a beautiful post Dorthe, with your reference to Easter sharing the vision of your Madonna head, the sermon rolled up close and all encapsulated withing your beautiful heart. Another make that gives me a virtual hug.
It's wonderful to see the intricate detail of the cross up close.
It's another rainy day here in Birmingham, hoping to have some spare time to craft this weekend as the days have gone before they have arrived recently.
Dearest of Hugs

The heart is so gorgeous - I love the soft neutrals and the beautiful Madonna head - I'm very impressed that you made it with paper clay. What a lovely cross too - your blog post has been a feast for the eyes!
I hope we have brighter weather soon - we are cold and grey too over in the UK! Looking forward to Spring,

Your heart you created Dorthe has all your special touches. I love your paper clay Madonna - so beautiful and serene as well as the rolled up sermon. It is perfect not just for Easter but everyday!
Kimberely's cross is quite special bearing the beautiful image of the Madonna and child also.
Sending you much love from downunder where the days are getting shorter and the temps slightly cooler!

Dorthe Dear your Heart is truly amazing and this lace heart is as beautiful as you are dear. Each precious element makes this heart a true treasure. Kim does make lovely pieces and this cross is beautiful. We are having more snow and rain. Winter in March is serving us well. Easter Blessings are near...<3
