Neutral collage using bits of gifts .

I have enjoyed creating this collage using gifts from dear friends,
and my new bought Cathrine More ,   stamp,
isen`t she lovely !!! The link takes you to That`s Crafty , having a lot of her beautiful 
stamps in their shop . 

This sweet heart was a gift to me from dear Donna , ( inkyandquirky ) thank you
so much , for cutting out this stamp, for me, and for all the other you gifted me too ,
with the  wonderful card ,lovely friend . 
I stamped :Angels are near ,- from the Catherine More set, too.

If you click the photos you will see the glittering golden paper,
behind the dye cut wreath pattern, and that shiny beautiful paper,
was part of my Christmas gift from another very dear friend, Terri.
Thank you so much Terri, for everything .

The last gift came from Karen
She dearly send me some little bags of Prills , the tiny round white beads,
and I fell in love with them, at once, and had to order more for me ,lol.
I was lucky to find a UK shop selling them .
My dear Karen, thank you so much for your gift to me , and for your lovely 
card, too. 

It was so wonderful to use some of the gifts in this little collage, creating a
warm feeling in me, thinking of  my friends .

I will link this to  

Dear Wen invites you to take part in the simply neutrals party if you would like to . 

Hugs and love

You made a beautiful memory of gifts from good friends Dorthe. How lovely to be able to look at it and recall from whom they have been gifted. A very pretty way to display that darling stamp, Donna's heart is another beauty and I have always been in awe of her cutting techniques.
You always know exactly what to do with these given gifts. A sweet post for Wen's Simply Neutrals and so nice to see.
Happy New Year, may 2019 be perfect.. Big Hugs Tracey xx

This is absolutely lovely and your stamp is a special one indeed-she has been on my wish list for a while and I do believe seeing your wonderful work with her has moved her up a few notches! The glittery base behind the cut wreath is a wonderful way to frame her beautiful face. I love seeing exchanged pieces being used to create even more special pieces. Thanks so much for sharing. xx

Hello Dorthe, what a gorgeous angel stamp with so many sweet details of birds and buterflies. You have used your gifts to make something really special. I like the dark stripes at the side, such a vintage effect like mattress ticking. You always stick to the neutrals so effectively.

Happy Hugs for the New Year,
from Jesse XXX

The die-cut wreath is just so delicate, the perfect frame for that vintage beauty, and the tiny beads add perfect pale accents. How lovely to create with all your gifts, a creation made with love!
