Christmas Fairy Post Card

Heather my Dear Friend from Canada and I decided to exchange Christmas Post Cards this year! We coordinated opening them together Tuesday evening. Heather especially loves fairy but I had NO idea my pressies this year would have a Fairy theme. This beautiful Christmas Fairy Post Card is pictured above. The thread painting is incredibly exquisite and the silk ribbon embroidery Poinsettia, lovely fairy gown and Dove are truly stunning. Look at her dainty 3 D fairy wings. Heather is truly an artist and you can see more of her lovely art work on her blog at "A Cherish Life"!

I created a Brazilian Embroidery Christmas Tree Post Card for Heather. I used all Brazilian Floss and added lots of beads and put some pressies underneath the tree.

Here is the other lovely things I received from Heather. A DVD called "Fairy Tales" which I plan to watch with my sweeties at our usual Friday Night at the Movie! I am really looking forward to watching it. On the back it say that it takes place in England during WW1. I love anything that would be based in the UK. Please note the Refrigerator magnet. We both have the same feelings about kitchens. LOL

I love Roses and especially Pink Roses and this gorgeous Journal is based on Cicely Mary Bakers lovely garden fairies. The "Rose Fairy" is so beautiful on the front of the journal. Inside Heather wrote me a Lovely Christmas Message and tells me I can use this journal to write down all my inspirational thoughts and idea for creating in it. Heather also wrote me the most lovely poem.

"She sat there on my hand a tiny Fairy thing.

I couldn't believe my eyes and then she started to sing.

A voice as delicate as an angel its lilt caressed my ears like no sound I'd ever heard it near brought me to tears.

I closed my eyes and listened a song so sweet and airy to my memory I commit the melody of the fairies".

By Heather Johnsgaard

Thank you Heather for writing this very lovely Poem into my Journal for me to read. Our Friendship is very special and I feel very blessed to have you as a friend.

Hi Judy,
Love the stitched Christmas tree and how kind to recieve a fairy in the post! The Fairy Tale film is excellent.x

Jasmine said...

How lovely. Both of your postcards are amazing. I'm not a very neat stitcher, but I can make cross stitches well (I think the Aida helps a lot).

You take care xxx

WOW and Heather call those Christmas cards ???
I call them small works of art!
If I got a card like that I would definitely frame it! They are to pretty just to put out once a year!
Needless to say, I think you both did a FABULOUS job!
They are breathtaking!!!

Maureen said...

Both cards are truly great, that fairy one is awesome (borrowed the word from my cousin) lucky you Judy!! enjoy the film.

Heather said...

Judy.... I am so glad you like your card and pressies! I love my card, you did such a wonderful job on the tree... and of course, all the other gifts along with it, especially the Dorset button... I took a good look at it after I had written to you, along with the instructions, and I don't know how you did it, it is truly a work of art too, I am so pleased to have them both in my collection! I hope to get these posted on my blog soon.... hugs my friend!


Both of the postcards are very beautiful, especially the tree. Fairies are so special arn't they! I hope you enjoy yours!
Have a lovely weekend

I like your tree very much but I absolutely adore your Dorset buttons! so much so that I feel like having a go myself. Your work is so neat.

The postcards you and Heather exchanged are stunningly beautiful.
I love them both.
The buttons you made are just amazing.
I love coming here as the things I see here are just so different.

Cathie said...

Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm not sure what Dorset buttons are, but I believe those are the upcycled handmade charms with fun sayings and such the kids like now. Lovely blog, glad to have found you, am following. Merry Christmas to you too.

OMG - Heather's card to you is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen! You are sooo fortunate!! The artist envelopes are a great idea, too; one that I will tuck away for the future! Hugs and Happy New Year, Cathy
