Howdy Cute Donkey!!

Coffee of the Day - Almond Roca

Good morning! or should I say, 'Howdy'!!! I am so lovin' this little donkey from Sew Many Cards! He is my most fave of the critters that Angela draws. They are all adorable, but there is just something about this little guy that takes me back to my Texas roots. And the challenge this week is to make anything using a donkey image - so was I ever doin' the happy dance! :) The winner gets free digis from the store, so be sure to play along! New images were released yesterday and new ones come out next week, too! I happen to know that there is a precious freebie up for grabs RIGHT NOW in the Freebie Friday link, so race on over before it's gone for good.

My card uses papers by Flair Designs and Making Memories. All coloring is watercolors with some accents done with my white gel pen. I added some sponging and extra inking on the main image, as well as vanilla craft ink on the card base. The fun trim is from JoAnn's and buttons were some great clearance finds from there, too! 10 cents and 25 cents a card can't be beat!!! and they add such a cute element to any project! a little linen thread bow completes the card! don't ya wanna just rub his ears??!?!

come play along with us! and be sure to check out the rest of the DT projects! you are certain to be in for a treat! :)
