Whimsy FREEBIE and A Card for Michelle

Hiya everyone.  I have a very special project I would like to tell you all about today.  Recently, fellow blogger and Spoon Full of Sugar and Just Magnolia Challenges Design Team Member, Michelle Oatman, (aka blog Donkey Smiles), was seriously injured in an accident on her farm. This accident resulted in the loss of her right eye.  Michelle has a very long road to recovery ahead of her as she learns to live her life with only one eye. She will have surgeries and continued care and therapy as she continues to heal.

My Whimsy DT buddy Debbie has organized a card drive in honor of Michelle which starts today on the Spoon Full challenge blog. The members of ASFoS
and JM along with some guests will take part in sharing their cards and asking
others to make a card or donation for Michelle.

There are many generous sponsors helping out with this event, including Whimsy Stamps.  One of their Designers - Melissa, has created a totally adorable donkey image and Ann, another talented designer from the Whimsy family, has created some super cute coordinating sentiments. These files will be offered as a FREEBIE on the  Whimsy store page HERE for the duration of the card drive. 

Please check out  the A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog for details of the card drive and what you need to do to be in with a chance of winning some fabulous prizes.

We would love to flood Michelle's mailbox with well wishes from around the
world. So if you have time, please help this special cause! I can only imagine
her grief at this time.

To help spread the word I'm entering this card into the following challenge...

Just Us Girls - Sketch
Simon Says - Check it Out
Crazy for Challenges - Two or More Ribbon

Thanks everyone for popping by!
