Donkey Refuge Digital Stamp

First of all I'd like to thank you all for your many sweet comments on my dog bite! It's really nice to know that you care and aren't just here for the freebies only. I always wonder if many people read the blog as well. :) Thank you so much!!

Today I have a little story for you:
While on the phone with my girlfriend, she casually told me about a Donkey Refuge she visited, and how she sponsored a donkey named Penelope for a year. Well, I couldn't get this out of my mind...and the more I thought about it, the more it tickled my funny bone. Who does that? Well, I guess a few people do...but it would never have crossed my mind! So, I made up a Digital Stamp of Penelope.

Meet Penelope:

Isn't she purrrrdyyy? Don't ya just love the "Love Me" Tat on her hindside?  Lol...

And here's where she lives:

This one's actually custom made for Adie and the 'new addition' to her family.

If you'd like your own donkey refuge image, check it out in my Etsy Shop!



  1. Doesn't creativity have a funny way of reaching out to us....the image is adorable. Glad to hear you are doing well after a bite!

  2. Oh, she's so sweet....thank you! We actually do sponsor a donkey....his name is Joe, and we did it as a birthday present for one of our grandsons...he gets to visit and feed Joe as often as he likes (grandson is 5) and I would recommend....only £15 for the year!
    Please know that I didn't become a follower just for the freebies, although admit that's what got me here....but just love your style!

  3. Hey thanks for the freebie!!! Nice job.

    Anne-Marie, I think that makes a wonderful present...I can imagine he just loves going to feed his donkey! We have a grandson who loves going to the pet store...maybe he'd enjoy this too? I'm so glad you enjoy visiting! :)
