Little Donkey!

No, not the 'Little Donkey' from the Christmas Carol! It's only May!
Hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend? Just a short post today but with a little card I made this week with a Whimsy stamp
The stamp is a Meljen Design from Whimsy and is called 'Sweet Little Donkey' - and he is rather cute & cuddly isn't he?
In an attempt to challenge myself to use colours and colour combos that are out of my comfort zone, I've used brown tones with lime greens - but I think they work ok on this?

I've coloured the stamp with promarkers.  The backing papers are K&Co.  I do love K&Co papers, the quality, colours, etc., and they seem to be 'classic' designs that don't go in and out of fashion.
The flowers are from punches with a little pearl centre, and a simple Marianne Creatables swirl die cut and the sentiment from Whimsy.
Hope you like him!
And thanks for all the lovely comments and support I've been receiving on here - my little blog is just two months old now but has been great fun, and your support in dropping by to look at my creations and leave comments is really great - thank you! And to all those who have joined as followers - a special thanks for joining me on the crafting journey!
