Darling Donkeys

Wow, this was so fun to create! I had not played with Darling Donkeys till I created these cards…I made some mistakes in the video, but that is LIVE events! These cards are so cute, and I taught a technique with the Blending Brushes on page 70 of the new Spring Mini Catalog. All Supplies will be listed below.
