With Love


Happy Weekend Everyone !!! I hope you are enjoying your time this weekend. Sorry I didn’t get to make my post yesterday but ended up having a bad day. I think I tried to eat something I shouldn’t of. I guess this is a big shock to my stomach, But it was good going down lol


Today I would like to show you a card I made for the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and the color scheme over at Color Create Challenge Blog.

I have used this darling image I got from a dear friend called Bildmalarna these images are coming to the states and I am so excited. I think they are so cute.

I have made a card for Valentines for one of my granddaughters. The papers are last years SU papers. I have used a chipboard heart and covered it with stickles. The leaf and branch punch are from MS and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and have been punched out with some SU punches.  She is colored with my copic’s and I have used some glamour dust on her wings.. All pages have been distressed with Walnut distressed inks.



While I am off I thought it fitting to join in the challenge over at Whiff Of Joy Challenge Blog. It has been ages since I have been able to participate in challenges as much so thought I would take the opportunity to join in again after ages. I have used this Handsome Oakley here as a Dr. The sentiment is from High Hopes Rubber stamps. I have used some older papers from SU (yes I am going to get rid of these old papers by using them up this year.)  The bottom sentiment is from SU and the sentiment on the star is from Sandra’s Digi’s.  I added a calendar to the front of this as it can be used for a desk calendar if so fitting.  The star is a Maya Road chipboard that I covered in glitter.  I have also used copic’s to color him in.


Well that is it for me today. I have some house cleaning to do while the grandson is home since I can’t push a sweeper yet (that ‘s a good thing lol) so need to get my word done and am just going to take it easy on what goes in my stomach today. Don’t want a repeat of yesterday.


Thanks for stopping bye dear friends and I so appreciate all your comments. Sending Big Hugs ((((((((((((((()))))))))))))))))))


  1. Oh sweetie, I hope you made a note of what you ate so as not to eat it for your card & calendar.. oMG!!! They are both adorable.. I have the same left over papers you have from SU have to get rid of them as well..

  2. both of these are just fabulous!! Hugs Juls

  3. Two fantastic cards Donalda. Love them both.

    Take care,

    Kat xx

  4. Hope today has been a better day with food, it is so easily done when you're hungry, hope it will be easier day by day.
    I think you're a master at pink with red in any form & your pink leaves with just that hint of green so effective. This post is another brilliant example of your ability with contrasting styles. first girlie & feminine then utterly boyish.
    Hope the sweeping got done.
    Much love & take care

  5. Two very beautiful cards Hun.
    Love the pinks and reds on the bildmalarna card, I find reds so difficult to colour! Very sweet and perfect for a Valentines card, your Granddaughter will surely love it.
    Fab boys card (hang my head in shame here, I NEVER make male cards) and it's lovely to add a calendar so it can be on display all year round.

    Hope you are feeling better today and your stomach isn't bad again.

    Take care
    Love Elaine xxx

  6. Hi Donalda,

    Hope your stomach is settling now.

  7. oh no Donalda I hope your stomach is feeling better now its got rid of how fantastically you used our colours this time and I love the calender
