Donkey Smiles

Good Morning,

Happy Thursday, can you believe tomorrow is already Friday! This week has been super HOT here so not getting much done because of the heat, but have found some time to craft in the A/C.

Today I'm a guest designer over at Cute Card Thursday and thought I would combine that challenge with a card for Michelle Oatman.

If you've not heard about Michelle and her tragic accident, please visit the Spoon Full of Sugar blog. They are hosting a card drive in honor of Michelle and Whimsy Stamps is taking part by offering a FREEBIE image and sentiment set which can be downloaded from our shop page now. We are also sponsoring the drive with a prize. Be sure to check things out, there are lots of wonderful sponsors taking part and we hope to be able to flood Michelle's mailbox with lots and lots of well wishes from around the world.

This is my card for Michelle using the Meljen's Designs FREEBIE Sweet Donkey with the coordinating sentiments created by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.
The challenge at CCT this week is School's Out. I was thinking summer time with this card and went with flowery papers and added lots of flower accents. The image was colored with Copics and then I added some glitter accents. The sketch is from this month's Whimsy Stamps Challenge and the papers are SU!. I've stitched and distressed the edges and framed my image with an Oval Nesties set. I embellished with pearls, flowers and chandelier drops, ribbon, hemp twine and a charm, and a Whimsy ticket sentiment with the Donkey Smiles FREEBIE sentiment.

This card also fits over at:
Crafty Pad: Animal Fun
Stampavie and More: Sparkling
Crafty Catz: Distressing
Quixotic Paperie: Pretty Pearls

Today is also new release day for the Meljen's Designs digital collection at Whimsy Stamps. Every Thursday Melissa will bring you new digital designs! Head on over and check out what she created for this week!


Thanks for visiting today! I hope you're staying cool! Have a great Thursday, see you back here tomorrow for new challenge projects for Just Magnolia and Stamp Something. 

Happy Stamping,
