Gratitude Part I

Hello Everyone
In advance let me explain that this is going to be quite a photo heavy post as it is about time I shared with you some of the beautiful cards I received at Christmas.
The order I am sharing is alphabetically.
It might be that some names are new to you so I have included links to their Blogs, it would be lovely if you were able to find the time to visit them.
Gorgeously arty from AlisonalisonSkates, to my eyes always have a beautifully nostalgic appearance to them. Possibly because my Mum loved to ice skate with friends during what I will laughingly refer to as her Salad Days (don’t you love that term!). She still has a pair of her skates from those days.
This beautiful creation was from AnneanneSo many of my friends have such a distinctive style that I can usually tell who has created the card.  I had barely opened the envelope when I proclaimed this card would be from the lovely Annie!annieFrom my lovely friend Darlene.  She creates such beautiful cards with The Stampsmith stamps so it was lovely to receive such a card.darleneFrom my sweet friend Dorthe. A soothing card with a gentle colour palette and pretty vintage image. dorthecardMore from Dorthe as she created this adorable padded fabric heart for me. dortheheartand finally from Dorthe a gorgeous package of goodies for me to use as I wish. I’d call it an Art Kit. The cherub is a piece of fabric.dorthegiftsYou can imagine how lucky I felt when each of those cards arrived, receiving art from so many lovely friends is special indeed.
I still have a few more to share which I will do another day.
Thank You for your visit.  I am trying to catch-up with your Blogs, I really have fallen behind with anything on-line and have missed not viewing your art.
Will return quite soon with another post.
