Whimsy Sweet Donkey

Well I guess you have seen that I have done a little spring clean up to my blog. I needed to make it fresh and new. And since I had just gotten the new Whimsy Sweet Donkey Rubber Stamp, and just finished coloring it - it seemed like a fun new header for my blog. Life is changing for me, and a clean fun look here is a good start.

And while I had the image colored - I decided to make a special card. Just to play and have fun. And boy did I play with this one :0)

Here is my card 0
Used my Copics of course - and the papers are My Minds Eye Lost and Found. Sewed all the pieces down. I had this wonderful mini wood fence that just had to be used. This is one of the embellishments that I buy, so excited to have it, and then am afraid to use it cuz once it is gone it is all gone. (insert shocked face here) But I have decided that I need to use! USE! USE! If I run out of something, then I will just replace it with something new. Common you know I will -

Then I got the new leafy branch die from Memory Box. OH So love this die. Heck I am loving all the Memory Box dies. I ran this through twice, once with brown card stock and then again with green. I clipped all the leaves and glued them onto the branches. I then punched out some Martha Stewart flowers,  folder the petals up and dotted and shaded with pink copic. Now I have no idea what this tree is in reality. But when playing it is a real tree...

The Sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps, Fanciful Birthday Notables 1. Die cut with a matching die.

Here is my card from the side - lots of depth -

And you can see I have done the inside as well -

Man I had fun with this one! Hope it made you smile.

If you were looking over my blog changes, you may have noticed that Stampavie is no longer listed under my design teams. I have decided that it is time to step down and have a break. I also will no longer be working as the Sales Rep for Stampavie. No worries, all is ok, just time to move on and "re-fresh" things.

Looking forward to playing with new things, and some old things. Getting to know new companies and at some point probably looking for more DT work possibilities. But today... I am enjoying my new Whimsy Digital spot and surfing the web for other fun images.

Have a great Day  - and see you tomorrow for my first challenge card on the Whimsy Inspirational Challenge Blog! 

HUGS and -

Love your card and he's such a fab donkey too. And what a coincidence - I am starting to showcase all my old and neglected stamps and my first post is a donkey that I am sure you will recognise :).
Love your new look :).

Hugs, Mette

I love your new blog look and the card is wonderful. Now, all of us Georgia girls would readily recognize your Dogwood Tree and it was the first thing to catch my eye when I saw your card. Love it. It's just past the time of year the dogwoods bloom and they are so gorgeous.
