A Hee Haw Birthday Card -

Now only if we had a Hee Haw Birth around here! Lacey is really taking her time! Just goes to show you, they are in control and what she did last time may not be her plan for this time. LOL So I am still waiting for a donkey baby - So until then I played with my new High Hopes Brayden stamps... they finally came after waiting for nearly 3 months! Almost as bad as waiting for a real donkey!
Brayden is colored with my Copics - cut and doodled around the edges. I used a cream colored card stock as the base with a BoBunny green dotted paper and a Happy Birthday pattern paper from Imaginisce, front and back of the paper. I inked the edges of everything. The sentiment is also from High Hopes - fits well.
I ran a pretty satin ribbon across the middle, with one of my MIL crocheted flowers and Martha Stewart frond punches. A jewelery spacer and mini brad to hold it all together.

Now not only did I decorate the inside of the card as well... but I colored up a second Brayden image! I made him holding the birthday cake... I love how you can put what ever you like into his "hand"! Same papers are used inside as the front, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Was fun to make a card just for fun, and especially a card with a Donkey theme -
So what are you working on this week? Me I am trying to get ahead just a bit on some DT work. Sticking close to home, this swine flu thing has us not eating out and just running around like normal. All of the schools in our area are closed, and there are many sick people that are being tested. There are 6 confirmed at this point here in Texas - I know three are in the area, hundreds being tested and are sick. And now sadly I hear on the news this morning that there is one death to a baby in Texas. I feel so sorry for the family - I don't think everyone took this too seriously at first, but now things are looking like they had better start.
Hope things are healthy where you are and you are well -
HUGS and-

Hi Michelle, I just love this stamp, its gorgeous and so cute. Great card as always, beautifully coloured and cute papers too. This swine flu thing is really scary, the young couple who have it here in Scotland live about 20mins away from me! It was so sad to hear about the baby that passed away, a tragedy. Hope you have some donkey babies soon. Hugs Dawn Marie.xx

Hi Michelle, love these donkeys (just gone mine yesterday too and I thought 2 months was long LOL). Agree this swine flu thing is getting serious - just hope they can get a handle on it soon. No cases near me but you just never know do you?! Good excuse for you to stay in and craft a bit more. Hugs, Fran x

Absolutely great card Michelle, your colouring is just wonderful. What perfect stamps for you. We've got two confirmed cases of swine flu in the UK...makes you think doesn't it?
Hope the baby arrives safe and well very soon :-)

Michelle- this card is adorable- I love the front one, he is a hoot!

I too feel sorry for that family. We got our first confirmed yesterday and she lives in my county- and she got it while visiting in Texas. We have a few more being tested as alot of people went to Mexico for spring break! Ugh......... it is a bit scary.

Love this card Michelle. Is there a better way to find these stamps on High Hopes. There is no category for animals so where would these be
