A Summer Get Well Card

Good Morning Everyone Happy Tuesday!! It is time for another Going Grey with ScrapCreations this week. This weeks theme is to think SUMMER and of course to use Basic Grey!! We have an AWESOME sponsor this week.........

One lucky winner this week will receive a 15.00 gift card to The Whimsy Store...How AWESOME is that, so come on over and join the fun at OUR BLOG!!!

For my creation today I used this darling image Strawberry Fairy in the Meljen's Digital Collection. When I think of strawberries I think summer!!! I thought this image was perfect for the challenge. I used the fun Basic Grey Paper Nook & Pantry.

This card I created today is for a wonderful Blogging Sister Michelle Oatman AKA Donkey Smiles. She 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 of recovery ahead of her as well as learning to live her life with only one eye. She will have surgeries and continued care and therapy as she continues to heal.

ASFOS blog is hosting a card drive for Michelle with some wonderful sponsors. Please if you get a chance make Michelle a card. Whimsy stamps is offering a FREE DIGITAL (created by Melissa) you can grab this SWEET image HERE. She REALLY loves Donkies and this image is PERFECT for her...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. Please visit HERE for more information on this special card drive.

Here is my creation I made today for Going Grey challenge and for Michelle. Hope you enjoy!!!
