Simon Says Colour Create a Pink Elephant with a Spoon Full of Sugar for Michelle

Some days it feels good just to be thankful for the small things in life!   Best matey Julie came to play yesterday with Alex and we had a lovely time.  I wasn't nearly as creative as them.  Alex made 5 cards before she departed and Julie certainly made at least two even though she left much earlier - I hadn't even finished my first one when they left!  The day did, however, ignite my crafting mojo and I managed to make a card for poor fellow blogger, Michelle.  You can read all about Michelle's terrible accident and her recovery on her blog.
Now the reason my donkey looks like a cross between a barn horse and a kangaroo and his head is too big for his body is because I drew him myself but I'm hoping his toothy grin and unconventional position will put a smile on Michelle's face when she receives it in the mail!
A Spoon Full of Sugar are promoting a card drive for Michelle and they have a cute little freebie digital donkey on their site kindly donated by Whimsy as well as loads of prizes if anyone needs an added incentive for this great cause.     I used Martine's great sketch over at Simon Says and coloured my donkey brown (instead of grey) for the challenge at Pink Elephant this week.  Colour Create also want chocolate with warm pink and white so I'm going to enter the card in all four places before sending it off to Michelle tomorrow.  I figure the more challenges I enter the more people will find out about Michelle and send her something sweet.  Some days it feels good just to be thankful for the small things in life!
