Recently she had an accident on her farm resulting in loss of one of her eyes - read about it HERE. She will have a long and difficult road for recovery ahead of her, amongst other things it's also quite an expensive journey. :(
A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge blog is organizing a card drive for Michelle, maybe to bring some smiles into her no doubt quite rough days and gather some donations to help Michelle with her medical expenses.
Whimsy Stamps has a gorgeous donkey freebie from Melissa Jenkins with a set of sentiments by Ann Vento for download on their site. If you have any time to spare, please consider popping over there, downloading it and making a card for Michelle, details about where to send it can be found HERE.
My card for Michelle:
The colouring is all done with Copics, including the background. I added some yummy transluscent glitter to details using the glue pen. Makes glittering a breeze, that. Matting for the image was creating using Nestabilities circles and labels dies. Card box is made using Martha Stewart scoring board - it has the envelope making attachment!
The papers are from Websters Pages, distressed with Tim Holtz distressing tool. I would LOVE to have that yoke but alas ... craft spending embargo, aaarrrggghhh!! Then I ran background through Big Shot with a Sizzix texture plate.
Ribbon and bakers twine both from my stash, little butterflies are Martha Stewart punch and buttons from my (messy) button box. Both sentiments I created in my 'puter, I wanted to use Ann's ones at first but I was set on my layout and needed something that would fit it, lol.
