"Kickin' It For Michelle" Card Drive

When I saw Michelle Oatman's story my heart went out to her so
I joined the card drive, which you can find over at

Here's a little info from A Spoon Full of Sugar blog, where she happens to be a DT member. 

"We would like to share some sad news today, some of you may already know from her blog, our design team member Michelle had an accident about two weeks ago, which has left her with the loss of her right eye and a long road of recovery ahead. In an effort to cheer her up and raise awareness for what happened to Michelle we are holding a card drive in her honor. We have many generous companies and individuals helping us with this special card drive and we hope you will help too!

We are asking that everyone please create a card in dedication to Michelle and mail it off to her. We would love nothing more than to flood her mailbox with well wishes from around the world. Michelle has shared so much of herself on her blog and in her design team work and this is a just a small way for us to give back to her."

So, this is my little piece I'm sending over to her.  Isn't that the cutest image?  I got it from Whimsy Stamps and it's a freebie there so if you get a chance, please grab it and make up a card for Michelle.

And as you know me, I always make my cards dual purpose but my 2nd purpose wasn't as dedicated (no offence) as the first purpose.  I used one of my favorite blogs:

Stamps:  Meljen's Freebie Donkey
Paper: Crate Paper "Brook Collection"
Embellishments: Misc ribbon, Basic Grey Opaline pearls, Stardust Stickles, pearl ribbon slider buckle from Wild Orchid Crafts UK and Zva pearls.
Punches:  MS border punch & MS butterfly punch
Ink: Colored With Copics and Momento Ink
