Fundraisers and Free Sunflowers for Ukraine

Hello there, friends. 

We are all watching the attack on Ukraine with immense pain, horror, and a crushing sense of helplessness. I have been wracking my brain to figure out how to help, even in a small way. Perhaps starting with my drawings, and extending to YOU, we can make a bigger impact and help people feel supported from all over the world.

We CAN contribute encouragement and hope to the Ukrainian people. 

 HERE ARE THREE WAYS TO HELP 

  • Four of my Sunflower-themed digital images are all now available for FREE to anyone who wants to download them and create cards, flyers, or posters. Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine, and we are starting to see them pop up all over the world in an effort to show our support and love. You’ll find two bouquets and sunflowers both detailed and simple. There is something for everyone to color and create a card or image to share. 

We are starting to see beautiful, uplifting creations from all over the world.




Download and color — this image is great for any and all skill levels of colorers and crafters.


Sales of both versions of Peace Offering are being donated to Sunflower of Peace, a non-profit organization committed to helping Ukrainians affected by the Russian military invasion with medical and humanitarian aid. It is a USA-based 501(c)(3), working with a global network of established organization and institutions that are committed to helping Ukraine in the current situation. Learn more or donate to them directly at

Come along and see what our kind-hearted and hugely talented designers — The Bloom Brigade! — have created to inspire you with the Peace Offering Digital Stamp Set.









Lastly, here is a little peek of me at work on my painting of Peace Offering


I hope you enjoy working on your cards, flyers, posters, or sharing on social media, and may we all do our part to bring a sense of hope to those who are suffering.

Bless you, and thank you for showing your support of Ukraine!

Thanks for offering the free digis, Marcella. But also for creating this lovely folklore stamp set and this fundraiser.

Here is a link with a card made with this lovely image to my blog:

A awesome gesture Marcella.
All your images are so beautiful.
IG is turning blue/yellow and the people of
the Ukraine know that we care and thinking, praying and
hoping for them.
There are only two countries between our country and the Ukraine, it's scarry. The first refugees have arrived and received shelter in our city. My heart is heavy with sorrow, it is only women and young children, their husbands and sons are fighting for their country.
We all feel so helplessness, trying to give as much as we can and pray that there will be peace tomorrow.
Thank you so much for what you do Marcella, thanks to the Bloom Brigade for there beautiful cards, stay safe and hope you all have a wonderful day.

Marcella, thank you so much for offering the free digis as well as the Fundraiser digi set. They are beautiful and although we can't do much to help from afar we can make cards of encouragement.
