Dust It Off Sunday - 11 - High Hopes Donkey!!

Hello! Today for my Dust If Off Sunday post I dug into my High Hopes stamps for one of my first Donkey Stamps. I collect Donkey Stamps :0) ... Ok I collect live donkeys, stuffed donkeys, porcelain donkeys, donkey toys, donkey prints... anything donkey!! But I do love my Donkey Stamps... this is one of my fun favorites, love to use this one for birthday cards!
Common who wouldn't love getting a card with a donkey serving you birthday cake? And love the sentiment that goes with it. This Donkey image actually isn't holding anything, you can purchase all kinds of things for him to be holding up... but the cake is my favorite.

My pattern papers are all My Minds Eye I believe, they are from my scrap folder. I used white card stock with a dark red cardstock mat. Lots of zig zag stitching to hold everything in place. My image is colored with my Copics - and the sentiment is matted with a Spellbinders fancy tag die cut. Love those tags.. I just forget to use them. OH and then at the top right corner- I used bakers twine. I have been really drooling over some of the fun bright colored bakers twine I have been seeing, and then found a link to "The Twinery"  - good thing I made my purchase in December... I am trying to not buy new for the month of January and February. Lets see how I do...   OH and I am hoping to share some of my bakers twine with a few of you... so keep an watch on upcoming post.. wink wink hint hint :0)

Have a wonderful Sunday  - HUGS and

Love this card, this stamp would come in handy right now (if I had it). One of my colleagues who also has donkeys and is very font of them has got a little baby girl; would be cute to have the donkey bring a baby around; but I have to think of something else....
