Cute little Donkey

This little donkey image is a digi stamp designed by Tina Wenke as a thank you for donations to the Stampavie company to go towards helping their US rep Michelle Oatman with medical expenses after she lost an eye in an accident whilst attending to her beloved miniature donkeys.
What a lovely gesture and I wish Michelle all the very best for her recovery.

I wanted the opportunity to practise my colouring so here he is! I coloured him with Copic Markers and finished with a bit of glitter. The background paper is Basic Grey Kioshi and the wording is one of the new stamps out from JustRite Stamps.

The SU Only Orange cardstock has been embossed wiith a CB folder and the flowers and buttoms are from my huge stash

An update on my brother Ian. I visited him over the weekend and he is progressing very well. We chatted over old times lthough the short term memory is not so good yet - he still has some post trauma amnesia. We played cards, watched TV and went for walks with him in his wheelchair. He is in Rehab and having sessions on the treadmill and exercise bike to strengthen his right side. All he wants to do is to get out of there and go home and it is hard to make him understand why he is there and how he got there. I didn't want to leave him but hope to go back down in a few weeks!

Fantastic news Jean! Hopefully he'll continue to get better and better!

Love your cute little donkey! My cousin has Donkeys in her back paddock and they are just so lovely!

Very cute card, that donkey is just so sweet and you did a great job with the coloring. Prayers for your brother for a quick recovery.

Hello Jean, thanks for stopping by my Blog today and leaving such a lovely comment about my PB Xmouse card - really made my day (and thanks for 'following' me too!).

Really love how you coloured this donkey digi image, and love all the embellies. I read about Michelle's accident this morning - how awful and distressing for her.

Eeeawwwwe Jean, This little fella makes me want to chuckle just by looking at him. Beautiful job colouring, wish I had a 1/4 of your talent. Wonderful news on your brother. Hopefully he'll be home soon. Love Leanne.

What a cute little guy - and you're colouring has really brought him to life - he needs a hug - LOL.
Great news about Ian too - what a relief to you all - even though he still has a way to go he's come sooo far!

This card is just darling Jean! Your colouring looks great! Sounds like things are going well for your brother physically and I'm glad he's progressing. I can imagine it's hard when he just wants to go home but still has a lot of work ahead of him.
