Sending Donkey Smiles to Michelle


This one is for Michelle!

Directly quoted

From A Spoon Full of Sugar:

“We would like to share some sad news today, some of you may already know from her blog, our design team member Michelle had an accident about two weeks ago, which has left her with the loss of her right eye and a long road of recovery ahead. In an effort to cheer her up and raise awareness for what happened to Michelle we are holding a card drive in her honor. We have many generous companies and individuals helping us with this special card drive and we hope you will help too!

Two of Whimsy Stamps lovely Artists Melissa Jenkins and Ann Vento have teamed up together to bring us this very special donkey image and matching sentiments, these are all available to download for free from the Whimsy Stamps store page.”

Inside of card:

Because she has suffered such an extreme eye injury,

I have made this card complete tactile!

It’s full of textures to feel and touch!

The papers are all embossed with Swiss Dots

and Birds and Swirls.

The image is colored (with my trusty Crayola pencils)

then popped up on one of Penny Duncan’s Nesties.

The border punch is Swiss Cheese,

just for more texture and depth.

The ribbon is from Offray

(I think I got it at Walmart).

Oh!  The papers:

I found them online and don’t remember where…

I had them in a file on my computer for awhile, so I must have saved them before I learned how important it is to keep track of where everything comes from and who I downloaded it from… I know better now! (-:

My little boy, Joey, also wanted to participate in this card drive!

Please take a second to take a look at HIS card here:

It is the very first card he really made ALL BY HIMSELF

and he is so super-proud of it!
