GDT for A Spoonful of Sugar – Card drive for Michelle

If you’re a reader of my blog you will know that the lovely Michelle has suffered a terrible accident and has to undergo a lot of surgery.  The cost of the surgeries are going to be exorbitant so the crafty world have gotten together to try and help Michelle.  Stampavie have offered a donkey digi stamp for free, although a donation would be gratefully accepted to go towards the surgery fund.

A Spoonful of Sugar challenge blog is running a 3 week card drive, starting today.  There are a LOT of extremely generous sponsors, and even some of Michelle’s DT teamies have donated prizes for the drive. Debbie asked the Just Magnolia girls if they would like to GDT for the drive and of course we jumped at the chance to help Michelle in any way we can.

I have used the sweet little digi donkey that was drawn by Tina Wenke for Stampavie, and coloured it with copics.  I know you get brown donkeys but for me a donkey is grey (I’m thinking Eyeore here lol).


I have followed the fab sketch on Totally Gorjuss challenge.  The papers are Kanban that a very sweet lady gave me to play with a while back.  I absolutley adore these colours together.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I have used Classic Sweet Roses and 15mm roses and spritzed them with Pearl Glimmer Mist.


Please pop over to A Spoonful of Sugar to check out all the info of the drive and to ogle all the prizes (they are amazing) but more importantly to take part and join in our endeavours to help Michelle.

Thanks so much
