Rubber Ducky You're the One - TSG67





Rubber Ducky, you're the one....

Sorry, I couldn't help myself ;) I just got back from camping for a week and after a very adventurous week, I finally got a chance to sit down and stamp :) I pulled out this sweet duck that is from the Polka Dot Pals set by There She Goes.

I made this card for today's challenge that just happens to be a sketch by the very talented trendsetter Pam :) To find the TSG67 challenge, please follow this link.




The little duck has been water coloured and then popped up in amongst the die cut waves that I made by using the die from the Cat's Pajamma's. I sponged the background behind the duck with some baja ink and then stitched around the circle as well as all the layers of designer paper.



I wanted to use a sentiment on this card but I was running out of room because this is a little 4 1/4" square note card, so I pulled out a scrap of shrink plastic and put it to good use. I then attached a jump ring to my little sentiment charm so that it can swing freely from the taffeta ribbon :)

So on a totally different side note...remember how I mentioned a very adventurous camping trip? We were camping at my parents cabin on Quadra Island for a week and right in the middle of that week, this happened...



Why yes, that would be my sweet little 6 year old sporting a rather trendy shade of pacific pointe on his brand spankin' new cast ;) Little mister man skidded across a soccer ball and landed in a lawn ornament and broke his right arm....for the 3rd time in his short 6 years of living. I'm hoping that our next camping trip will be a little less "adventurous" ;)

Oh dear, he's broken that arm three times? Poor little guy! He can probably just about set and cast it himself by now! Glad all is well, and that you found some time to craft! Your card is so colorful, and so much fun!!! Thanks for sharing it!
