Duck Noel

Hi,

Well after last weeks fun and games, hopefully this week will get back to normal !!.  H has a party this afternoon, oh joy !!, although i do have one very tired and irritable 5 year old at the moment, i think the first year of school is now starting to take it's toll on him, so roll on another 3 weeks and then he can chill and hopefully be a more 'Normal Child' !!

Although today's stamp is called 'Duck Noel', i'm thinking i should rename it 'Duck A L'Orange', as you may need sunglasses for this one !, Winter Wonderland's challenge is 'Monochromatic' and i wanted to make a card using a different colour !, i was drawn to the ducks beaks and webbed feet and thought oh orange would be good, then i remembered i had some 'My Mind's Eye - Colorful Christmas' papers with unusual colours. It also gave me a chance to play with my new (well i've had it about 3 months) 'MS - Skyland Snowflake' - I'm going to have a play with this, as you can turn it into circles, so watch this space !! 

Today's Card And Challenges :

Winter Wonderland  - where the Challenge is 'Monochromatic'

52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Secret Crafter - where Challenge No: 92 is 'Christmas'

Crimbo Crackers - where Challenge No: 18 is 'Anything Goes'

Just love this stamp - the ducks/geese really make me laugh, they have the greatest of expressions! Fabulous card. Missed Goodwood this afternoon, was too busy drooling over boys in tight lycra!! Hugs Sxx

Cute! And it's so much better to see the ducks "run around" than being Christmas dinner, too!
