Kickin' It for Michelle

Happy Thursday everyone, and thank you so much for coming by today. This post means a lot to me as it concerns a fellow crafter who is so amazingly talented! Michelle Oatman of Donkey Smiles needs our love and support. She experienced an unfortunate accident in June while tending to the animals on her farm. A bungee tie snapped into her eye, resulting in its removal. She is awaiting surgery, and eventually a prosthetic, but in the meantime has been surrounded by so much love from the crafting world.You can read her story and update HERE on her blog.
Michelle and I were both Guest Designers at Club Anya, she was such a hard act to follow! With amazing details and flawless creations, I instantly became a fan of her designs. It's always nice to peruse her blog and visit her farm updates, as well as see how beautiful her cards are.
My card was made with an adorable freebie image that our friends at Whimsy Stamps has designed for Michelle, as well as  a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. You can find more details HERE as well as the link to download this image. PLEASE join us in this card drive for Michelle! Her address and more information can be found at A Spoon Full of Sugar's blog HERE, the card drive will continue all month long.
In addition, her fellow designers over at Stampavie is also giving away a free digital image, all they ask is that you consider making any monetary donation via PayPal to help with medical expenses. All information and that image can be found HERE at their DT blog.
I do hope you join us in supporting Michelle! And, as her blog is so sweetly named, I leave you with a donkey smile. :D


Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!♥
