Kids Say the Darnedest Things! ~ Creative Belli Challenge #85 ~ QKR Stampede

First of all, don't try to type when you're not feeling well... Or at least let someone proof read it before you post!!  lol
Hello everyone!!  Today is Wednesday and that means it's time for another Belli Challenge!  For the next two weeks you are to use butterflies and/or dragonflies on your projects!  How easy is that?  I know most of you use them daily, but, remember just upload NEW projects and not something back dated, we want it to be fair for all!! 
We also have an amazing sponsor for this challenge ~ QKR Stampede (but they also own Eureka Stamps and Biblical Impressions. ) You have to check 'em out, they have stamps for everyone!!!  They provided us with our choice of 3 stamps each, and let me tell you, that was hard..  But since they were kind enough to give us 3 stamps, we will be uploading more cards/projects next Wednesday!!  How great is that?
The prize for this challenge is $30.00 worth of stamps from QKR Stampede ~ WOW!!
We also have a Guest Designer this week, who is Jess Stockmeyer, so check out her beautiful card, and leave her a little luv, too!! 
If you play and upload on SCS please use the keyword ~ CBC85..
Okay, now about my layout!  I chose this sweet little donkey, specifically for this layout.  SHE looks just like my sweet and spoiled, little Ellie.  I colored her with Copics, punched her out with the Marvy Oval Punch, sponged SU Chocolate Chip Ink around the edges.  Then I doodled the edges with the SU Black Journaling Marker.  After that I added the sweet little butterfly (MS Butterfly Punch) right over her nose!  All of the butterflies have stickles on them. This is the pink that I needed for the Stuck On U Sketches.
And now here's the list of things I used:
QKR Stampede ~ Little Donkey
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
The Paper Studio ~ Wood Fence Paper (2 Sheets)
K&Company Scrap for Butterflies
We R Memory Keepers ~ All of the Hardware
Bazzill Cardstock Strips
SU Chocolate Chip CS and Ink
Tim Holtz Distressing Inks
MS Butterfly Punch
SU 1 3/8" Circle Punch
SU 1 3/4" Circle Punch
Marvy Oval PUnch
Spare Parts Antique Brad
EK Success Foam Letters
Thickers ~ Rainboots
SU Chocolate Ribbon
This layout also qualifies for a few other challenges which are:
Stuck On U Sketches ~ My favorite Sketch Site
Allsorts Challenge ~ Recipe 3 ~ 2 ~ 1  ~ I used 3 Decorative Corners; 2 Clips and 1 Ribbon
ABC Challenge ~ O is for One Paper 
Crafty Cardmakers ~ Use something digital ~ the little donkey in the lower right hand corner
Creative Inspirations ~ Say it in Sepia
Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Keep it Simple
Incy Wincy Designs ~ Punch It Out
Little Red Wagon ~ Ribbon
The Pink Elephant ~ Ribbon
Roses On Paper Challenge ~ Pink, Brown and Cream
Okay, that's all I got ~ I hope you like it!
Please go check out the other Belli blogs ~ Anne, Ceal, Chris, Darsie, Deb, Holly, Jenny, Joan, Joy, Liz,  Maria, Melisa, Robin, and Steph.  You won't be disappointed!!
