Gato is so excited! Today is the drawing day!





Ok, I really don't think Gato even cares, but she jumped in my tent this morning, she actually was playing hide and seek with the dog. (Yes ... that is dog slobber on her head) The dog never realized she is in my tent and when she goes by looking for Gato, out she pops and jumps her. Now for those that don't know I have a Border Collie... I use to worry that the dog is so much larger than the cat. But Gato usually gets the best of the dog. They really do have a lot of fun, and the dog is really careful with her.





The card today:


I just had to make a donkey card for today! Yes it is the Blog Candy drawing day! I will run the Random Number Generator at 8pm my time in Texas (Central), so check back in and see if you won the adorable Sweet Little Donkeys from Alota Rubber Stamps!





So today is another one of the Donkeys in the set, I just love the big eyes on these sweet donkeys. I colored with my Copics, Spica Glitter pens and Sakura Glaze Pens. I matted with both yellow and orange card stock. I found a piece of pattern paper that matched well, I don't remember the name sorry. I used the same yellow as the card base. All the edges are sewed down with a orange/yellow thread.








This card is a special request for someone that asked me to make them a card, one thing they asked for was the flourishes, so I made sure to add plenty of Quickutz die flourishes, and I just had to add some light green bling on the ends for some added fun. The sentiment is part of the set, and I just love it! Heck it is one of the sentiments I requested to be in the set, so of course I love it! I inked the edges of the card with orange ink.


I am so excited about the drawing tonight! Good luck to everyone that has their name in the hat as they say, and thank you so much for spreading the word!


Hubby is home today and we have outside work to do, he he, today he wants me to drive the tractor while he cuts up a tree that has fallen.... Watch out woman in a TRACTOR! I don't think he will let me have the controls for long -

Hope you all have a great Wednesday and make sure to take some time to get inky and I'll be back later tonight!
HUGS and-

Michelle- I have to tell you, I started reading your entry and very slowly moved the page down, I too am sooooo excited about this drawing. My stomach was in knots until I saw that you were drawing at 8pm. Dang! The anticipation is awesome!
Gato is just so darned cute, I just love my cats and it is like having 4 kids at my house with them.
Your card is magnificent and I am sure the recipient is going to be beyond happiness when they see it. What a fab job.
Have a fun day!

Hello! Adorable (the card and cat!! : ) ))
It sounds like you have such fun with your animals! Almost makes one want to go out and get donkey, a dog, and a cat!! Heehee : )
Can you tell me what the flourishes are called-just quickcutz flourishes? I love those-and they can be used with the cuttlebug-right?? Thanks for the chance to win and also for sharing your awesome cards!!
