A donkey wish

  Wow!  I am back after a major computer problem.  My registry was not working properly and would not allow me to access any program.  It required me to restore the computer to original settings and let me say this to you: back up your stuff!  That was the worst part and then reinstalling programs.  It is still a little wonky.  I was doing a lot via the iPad but not crazy about the cutting and pasting on it and redoing photos.  So...here am I!
This is my version of a masculine card.  Hubby will understand as he used to use this word a lot to refer to people that weren't so bright.  It became larger than life because we found a little stuffed donkey while in St. Martin and started to take it with us on our travels around the world.  So when I saw this donkey stamp, I had to have it!  He might be reading this so pretend you never saw this card honey!  At this point you are probably thinking we are rather odd!  Yeah, maybe a tad.  I like to think of it as having fun!

The challenge at Paper Playtime is to create a masculine card with a stamped sentiment.  I used this American Crafts set paired with Basic Grey pattern paper and a touch of Simple Stories. 
Hope you will join us!
