Most people will by now know of the accident resulting in the loss of an eye suffered by Michelle Oatman. Various organizations connected with Michelle have suggested ways to support & help her during this time. For further information visit the A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog who are holding a Card Drive in Michelle's honour - asking members of the crafting world to create a card & send it directly to Michelle. Details of how to participate are included in this posting.

I have used the Donkey image from the special digital stamp set Meljen's Designs & Raindrop Echo Designs have made available through Whimsy Stamps for crafters to use when participating in the Card Drive. I based my colour scheme on the inspiration photograph provided by the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
