:0) My First Card with my new visual prospective! :0)

As promised here is "my first card" since my accident - -

It is a Thank You to all of you!!! There is just no way I can express my Thanks to each of you that have been so wonderful the past month and a half - all the cards, well wishes, prayers and donations - - It took me three days to make this card ( have to work in short periods.. ) so if I were to make a thank you card for each of you and send them out it would take me years. I just hope you all understand how much your support has meant to me -

This is the Donkey that Tina Wenke made for me for Stampavie  - Now please don't expand and look to close at my Copic Coloring.. LOL as those flowers were REALLY TINY with no depth perception!! But after 4 prints and tries I finally got one that satisfied me as my first one eyed card. I need lots of practice - but oh my it felt so good to color!! And then I dusted off my desk and sewing machine and attached it to a card!

Here are some details of supplies - The papers are The Paper Studio "Sweet Pea" stack, with Martha Border Punch, Sewing, adhesive pearls in the corner, mulberry roses, Martha frond leaf punches and pearl pins. "My" donkey is cut out with a Nestie and then edged with a Copic Marker for a mat look. The sentiment is a Sizzix Card Maker Thank You die punch.

Thank you Tina for such an adorable Donkey - I adore her! She will always be very special to me!

I have also colored two more donkeys... The Whimsy Stamps lovely Artists Melissa Jenkins and Ann Vento's Adorable Stuffed Donkey and Karen's Doodles wonderfully fun Donkey so you will be seeing two more cards real soon!! :0)

Again.. Thank You all for all the wonderful Support! It means the world to me!!
Hugs and-

Oh what an adorable card you made. I love the stitching and the punches and the flowers and your coloring. Gosh, I expected a simple card. Not from you! That would have taken me three days too and I have both eyes! Hey, no one expects a personalized thank you. You just need to do what you can do and rest. We all want to see you back up to speed as soon as possible.

Bev said...

Michelle, So glad that you have been able to get out and about and especially glad that you got back into making another card! I tried to leave a comment before, but did not know how so tried sending an e-mail, but not sure if that even went. Anyway just wanted to say how glad I am that everything is starting to come together for you again and how sorry about your accident in the first place! Keep the cards and pictures of your animals coming--I just love them! Take care, Bev C.
