Sweet Little Donkey Card

Good morning fellow card enthusiasts! This weeks challenge at Card Makin' Mamas is titled "On the Farm" and it's the perfect challenge to use the Sweet Little Donkey image by Meljen's Designs. Many of you may already know that I grew up living in the country. My grandpa raised cattle and I had many neighbors who had donkeys. My sister and I always begged my parents for a donkey....but it was to no avail. It's not like we needed one, we just thought they were cute and therefore we should have one. Evidently that wasn't a convincing argument! Oh well... now I have my own sweet little donkey digital stamp and no feeding is required.

The design for this Sweet Little Donkey Card comes from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge. I've colored the image with my Copic markers using warm gray colors and the patterned paper is from the On Trend collection by Crate Paper. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

My Sweet Little Donkey Card is entered into the following challenges:

Here is a photo of me with a cute donkey taken while I was visiting one of my neighbors.

  1. Andrea, at first I thought that you had gotten your wish. I grew up on a farm and we have every kind of animal but a donkey. My dad didn't want them or pigs. LOL. Anyway, your card is darling and I have always loved the sweet image you used on your card. I love the paper and color combo. thanks for joining us this week.
