Magnolia's Ella the Donkey

Howdy -

Being that Hubby and I have had a quiet Holiday at home, and the weather has been cold and rainy a few days I have had lots of fun in my craft room actually having fun going through all my stamps of way back. Finding that there are quite a few that have never seen ink! The shame! This is one I HAD to have - and now that I have used it finally I am sure you will see it more often. And I am also sure you will see why I HAD to have it....

Love this Magolia image - Ella the Donkey  - Not sure if my kids would let me embellishment like this. Probably would do a roll in the mud to get it all off. LOL - I colored with my Copics (colors below)

Then I went for some inspiration for my card - I have been surfing a lot on the net at new sites, old favorites I haven't been to in a long time. Splitcoast was always a favorite and I found a challenge there in the inspiration category that I really liked - IC473 The Perfect Palette - loved the color challenge and the red, black and white inspiration.

Sewed things down - added some buttons and then the sentiment from Alota Rubber Stamps "Happy Birthday"

The pattern paper is from Prima Marketing  - loved the fun saying - Used it on the inside as well.

Copic colors used -

Having so much fun just playing with old stash! The best part of rainy cold weather days! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend - family, friends? Or maybe the love of some fun craft supplies!
