Feeling ducky!

I LOVE these adorable little ducks! I remember when I was a little girl my dad came home with some ducks! He was amazing like that often bringing home some sweet thing for us to learn to care for.



My adorable little image is "The Ducks" from Serendipity Stamps.

I am excited to enter the challenge going on at Serendipity Stamps Blog where the theme is Circles and Dots.   : )



I applied random patches of pastel chalk to my paper and then I cut out the circle die.  I sponged the lower portion of the card with Limeade Ice ink from PTI and Daffodil Delight ink from SU.  Next I stamped my sweet little ducks and added color with my Prisma pencils.  Because I stamped my image over the inked background all my eggs were yellow.  I wanted them to be colored so I stamped and colored some new eggs and fussy cut them out to glue on top of the yellow ones.  I really liked how it looked because it added some sweet texture! Finally I added some random dots from the scrap of my original chalked paper.  My sentiment is from Simply Spring Borders from PTI.

I spent about a half hour searching for the maker of my circle die cut but sadly I have come up empty! I thought it was Elizabeth Craft but... If you know what who the maker is I would love to edit my post to add it.

I think that is all for me today.  I am hoping to get some time in my crafty space today because word has it there is a very special Birthday Party HOP going on in honor of one of Blogland's sweetest and most talented neighbors that I don't want to miss.

A reminder, if you have not already heard the news, Darnell is cooking up some April Fools fun! be sure to check out her idea HERE.



Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Oh this is the cutest card. Clever idea to cut out eggs and pop them on top. Love that circle die and how you've popped on the small dots on the top right of your card. However.... the star of the show is those cute ducks and how lovely was is that your dad brought you some home when you where small? x

I loved the way you used these sweet ducks! Such a pretty and spring colored card! Sorry I can’t help you with the die.
We had one lithe duck for a while growing up, not a happy ending. Thanks for joining us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog, Patti. God bless you!
