Grow Your Blog & Giveaway

 
Hi blogging friends, 

Today I am joining the Grow Your Blog party at Vicki's place.  If you are new to Donna's Designs I hope you will take a few minutes to look around.  This is a great time for us to get to know each other.  I have been married for over 20 years.  My darling husband and I have a love for Ocicats.  We currently have a chocolate-silver named Cheops.


I started stamping in 2008.  For me creating cards is about more than just rubber stamps and ink - it's about sharing a part of yourself and your creativity with others.


Donna's Designs has been featured in Artful Blogging, Creating Vintage Charm, Romantic Homes, Gatherings, Rubber Stamp Madness and Old Fashioned Living.  

On my blog I share with you my passion for gardening.  As you stroll through my gardens you will see native plants which attract butterflies and hummingbirds.  As you tour and take in all the architectural elements I have incorporated into my gardens; whether it is the gazebo, arbor, trellises or the pond, I'm sure you will find something you like.



I also enjoy sharing my vintage teacups and china.  I have been collecting these pieces for many years.  I do hope you will consider becoming a follower of Donna's Designs so you don't miss a thing  :-)

For this special party I am giving away a pair of vintage style rose earrings in blush pink.  Aren't these just romantic?  


All you need to do to enter the drawing is leave a comment on this post by midnight on Friday, February 14, 2014.

I will pick the lucky winner on Saturday, February 15th using random.org.  International bloggers are welcome to enter.

Thank you Vicki for hosting this lovely party.  Please stop over to 2 Bags Full to visit the other participants.

My door is always open so please do come back to visit!  I would love for you to "like" and follow Donna's Designs on Facebook.

Aunt Marti said...

Donna, welcome to the Grow Your Blog Hop! I volunteered to help Vicki as a party volunteer. Vicki will stop by sometime I am sure, but with more than 600 blogs participating it will take her time to visit everyone so she asked for volunteers to help today. I offered to help. I am so happy I did because I have found your blog. Your cards are stunning, as is your garden!

quiltgirl said...

What beautiful cards! Your combination of color and texture make me want to savor them slowly, like a good chocolate.

Hmm, now that I think about, it may be time for a leisurely cup of tea and closer look at those cards. I'm going to put the kettle on and I'll be back. Thanks so much for sharing :)

Thank you for visiting my blog. It was lovely to meet you through the Grow Your Blog party. I love your designs and those earrings are superb. Unfortunately I'm allergic to anything but gold now, so I hope they go to someone who can enjoy them.

So lovely to meet you Donna through the GYB party.
From one gardener to another can I just say your blog is simply stunning and I share much of what you love too.
Wonderful that you have had such a great response.
I may not be too late to be included in your lovely giveaway of those pretty pink vintage earings.
Tomorrow will be my drawing day too!
Suzy
