Sending Donkey Smiles :-)

I made a card for Michelle a few days ago and thought it would be nice to make her a little photo album too :-)

There is a lovely appeal on the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge asking us to send Donkey Smiles to Michelle :-) ,,,

I used the lovely Donkey image by Tina Wenke for Stampavie created especially for Michelle's appeal. You can download the image and donate to her fund in the Stampavie DT blog.
I coloured the image with Prisma pencils and copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink.The papers are Basic Grey Granola papers which I think go really well with this cute donkey :-)

The flower is a selection from my drawer, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist and stickled with my fave star dust stickles :-) The 'My Little Donkey's' was stamped using a Hero Arts Mixed Letters set with Rich Cocoa memento ink ,, this was then inked with the stormy sky distress ink too :-) The ribbons were in my drawer and the twine is American Tag hemp twine :-) I looked EVERYWHERE for some of this and completely missed it in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,, they have LOADS of it is all colours !! I need new glasses !! :-)

There are 12 blank pages inside for Michelle to stick her photo's in :-) I thought she might like to take a few photo's of her beloved Donkeys when she has to go in to hospital ??
I am sending this album and this card on Behalf of the Simon Says Stamp company. i hope Michelle likes them !

This week we thought that seeing as we have all been basking in sunshine it was time for a yummy cocktail ,,, non alcoholic of course !! :-)

Now ,, doesn't that look cool and refreshing ,,, this is known in my home as a Blue Lagoon ,, named after a gorgeous bay on the Maltese sister island of Comino and the sea really is that colour !

Would you like the recipe ?
1 tot Blue Curacau
1 tot Vodka
1 tot Gin
1 tot Cointreau

mix with ice and top up with bitter lemon :-) ,,,, OK ,, so it does have a little alcohol in it !! :-)

and this is a photo of the Blue Lagoon ,,, lovely eh !! :-)

As usual our lovely Boss Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a trolley dash around her fabulous Simon Says Stamp store to the value of $25 !! with so many fab items arriving almost daily there is just soo much to choose from ! :-)

For my card I went right out of my comfort zone and made a rectangular card !

The image is a lovely Penny Black Chicky Night I coloured the image with copics and added stickles here and there :-) The paper is Basic Grey and the sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp Exclusives sets :-) The ribbbon and charm are also from Simon Says Stamp the gems are kaiser Craft and the fancy border is a Tim Holtz Scrollwork die.
