Pink and Blue


Good Morning all !!! Well the weekend is fast upon us !!!! And it being Thursday we have a new challenge for you over at Lily of The Valley Challenge Blog.

The challenge this week is to use Pink and Blue !! This was a little difficult for me as I am not much of a blue person lol

Today I have used Coffee Break as my image and one of the sentiments from the  Mixed Circular Collection  . A must have for any crafter.

I have colored my image with copic’s and the papers are from MME. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaf die is from Magnolia.

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I have used some pearls and a flourish from my stash. The border punch I have used is from SU.

I do hope you will come and join us over at Lily Of The Valley Challenge Blog .




Also a reminder that starting next week there will be lots of new things going on. Lily Of The Valley and Wild Orchid Crafts have teamed up to show you some really great new images and new products so be on the look out.

I am still working lots of hours and not much time for crafting at all but do try to squeeze some in as I can. Besides working I have been working in the garden in the evenings, oh I so can’t wait for everything to get done. We have gotten cucumbers already and the green beans and tomatoes are almost ready. Going to be good eating real soon.

My grandson is still gone at his mothers, I really miss the guy to be honest. It sure is nice and quiet though but after having him around for over a year I so miss him. He gets his license the 28th of this month and grandma has a nice surprise for him when he gets back. I do hope he will like it.  Not to bad for a first vehicle. He has no idea, but grandma has a job lined up for him when he comes back too to help pay for the insurance. OMW !!!!! I about flipped on what the price is for teenagers!!!!!!!! Then next you will see my youngest grandson Nathaniel here, he is the little water dog. Rachelle bought them a pool and he loves it. From the time he gets home till he goes to bed he wants in the pool lol. Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend that is coming up.

  1. Oh Donalda, love the pink and blue together..

    And your are such a great grandma, your grandson will be shocked to say the least when he sees his new toy... He will love it. And yes, I know what it costs to put a new driver on your insurance..OMG!!!! Talk about sticker shock.. And I am afraid when son #2 get his license. He just got his permit yesterday.. now that can be scarey..

    Have a great day

  4. This is gorgeous Donalda. The colours are so pretty and the image so sweet. Perfectly coloured and embellished as always.

    Grandma is going to be mighty popular!! I dare not show my son this photo or he'll be packing his bags and you'll have 2 boys to look after.
    Hal gets his provisional license in October and he's already talking about a car, but yes the insurance is extortionate!

    Nathaniel is such a cutie!

    Love & hugs

  5. Well - I think you're a very special Grandma, it looks a real beauty & I'd love to be watching when he is given it.
    Love the pale bluees on your card - the ribbon & the pale flowers are just so soft & balance the pinks beautifully. The swirl is striking & I like how you've used that olive green in the patterned paper for the punched leaf.
    Your little grandson looks a contented chap.
