GUESS WHAT I GOT IN THE MAIL....





I am soooooooo excited! Yesterday afternoon my Alota Rubberstamps Sweet Little Donkey Stamps come!!!!! As soon as I had a second I mounted them on my foam cut them and got out my INK!!! How adorable is he??




I colored him with my Copic Markers, then I used stickles on the flowers and the butterfly. I love it, and the stickles qualifies me for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge.
For the card I chose one of my all time favorites, only the best for these Donkeys! DCWV Glittery Nana's Nursery Girl papers. One because the are just adorable, two because the extra glitter and bling fit the challenge!
One pattern is matted on a light green and sewed down with a blanket stitch. I then used the pattern with the cute baby words and names on it as a band across the bottom and sewed it down. I cut my cutie with my circle Nestibilities and then matted a green scallop card stock that I inked the edges on. Oh and when cutting the circle, I cut out the butterfly first and made sure to not cut it with the circle so it would fly over the circle. Does that make sense?
I added stacks of Prima flowers with Doodlebug Glitter brads. And it is all on a pretty pink card stock base.
Now there are soooo many wonderful Donkey Sentiments with this set, but my favorite is simply "Donkey Hugs" Well the front looked so finished I decided to pretty up the inside, so I used the same papers and created a decorated mat around the sentiment for the inside. Giggle Giggle...
Now here is one more thing I just have to share. Look at what one of the smaller donkeys are in the set..... Yep a stamp for the back of the card! It reads "Stamped with Love and Donkey Kisses"! Perfect along side my normal backside stamp that I have used forever.
Ok.... so I will be grinning from ear to ear today! And I have so many more Donkeys to color and play with!
Don't forget this is from the same two sheets of rubber that is part of my Blog Candy.... Click the link on my side bar for the info!
Well gotta run, Hubby is screaming for me, ready to get to work! Hope you have a great Friday and get inky!
