Donkey Kisses!

Alota78 DonkeyKisses wm

Hi everyone,

Today my card combines two challenges…. Thursdays always means challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess which is Joanne Grzelak.

Joanne has challenged us to stamp or create a spring scene on our card.

It’s also challenge time over on the Alota Rubber Stamps blog, our challenge hostess is Marie Carlsson. This time round Marie has challenged us all to play Black Jack!

The idea is to make a card/project by selecting any of the playing cards above. As there are 4 playing cards for each number in a real deck of cards you can use that particularly card up to 4 times. Of course as we are playing Black Jack, the total points you can use to create your card is 21 points. Card/Paper don’t have any value, so you can use as much of that as you like.

I found this hard, so hopefully I have done it right, I always find it hard to limit what I use on a card.

Here are my points total:

  • Alota Image = 1 point
  • Stitching = 10 points
  • 3 Flowers (2 points each) = 6 points
  • Bling = 4 points
  • Total = 21 points

For my card I used Alota Rubber Stamps Michelle's Sweet Little Donkeys #1,  such a fun stamp set.

Here is the inside of my card, the sentiment used here is another Alota Rubber Stamp, this time from the Michelle's Sweet Little Donkey # 2 stamp set.

What gorgeous sweetness - that donkey is just adorable, sitting there smelling the spring flowers.

Frances, this is really adorable.
I love Spring but it is killing me at the moment...allergies. Ugh!

I'm not so sure I want to be kissed by a donkey, but the image is very sweet, and I love the combination of colors!!

A beautiful and cute card at the same time, Frances! So very sweet with that donkey and all the pretty flowers. Great job with that Black Jack challenge, too!
