Sharon's Little Sunbeam Award - Week 8


This week Sharon's Little Sunbeam shines on Donna at:

Donna's Designs

Donna has one of the loveliest blogs that I have found so far.  She literally has fairies in her garden.  Don't believe me?  have a look at this post -  Fairy Garden - it was the first of Donna's that I discovered and I have loved visiting her blog ever since.

Donna makes the most beautiful handmade cards.  Many of her posts contain the results of her handiwork.and they are truly stunning.  She tells us exactly how they are made and even lists all the materials, stamp designs and ink colours.  As tempting as it would be to try my hand at this art form myself, for now I just enjoy looking at the results and marvel at how she puts all the different elements together.
It goes without saying that Donna is as nice a person as her blog is beautiful - as everyone who is familiar with my sunbeam award knows by now - that has become one of my foremost prerequisites!

A little while ago I was the winner of a giveaway Donna held to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.  I have never won a giveaway before and found it a lovely experience.  This post gives me a chance to show in detail what Donna sent me - 

My gift was wrapped in this pretty, lightly embossed wrapping paper and came with this very elegant card.  



The giveaway was a CD of Music played aboard the Titanic - contemporary music of the time creating a compilation that is both moving and atmospheric.

 

With it Donna included one of her own cards.  (I hope you don't mind Donna that I am showing it here.)  The subject perfectly compliments the CD.  I love the colours and the play of light.




And finally a poem with the most beautiful words about angels.

 

Thank you Donna.  I though this combination of items was very special and that's how I've come to think of your blog too.

The first two pictures in this post were previously used in a post called Fabulous Fairies

Sharon's Little Sunbeam is my own personal 'no strings attached' award.  It is my way of thanking some of the wonderful people who enrich my blogging experience.  The recipient is introduced in a post like this one and a link to their blog remains on my sidebar for a week.  There are no conditions attached to the award.  The recipient does not need to answer any questions, pass the award on or even acknowledge that they have received it.  All they need to do is bask in my little sunbeam and enjoy it!

Another blog for me to go visit. There are sooo many talented and creative people on the blogs, I only wish I had more time to visit ALL of them. The cards she made are really beautiful!
