I originally was going to make a "New Baby" card using this cute duck from the Penny Black set "Buddy and Duck", but found this sentiment worked better inside the circle, so I decided against a baby card. Of course I think this duck works well for a lot of occasions, and I think it fits the sentiment really well.
The duck was colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, then fussy cut. The umbrella was stamped again and fussy cut separately, then attached with dimesionals. The sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set. I paper pierced on two corners and then framed the image panel with dotted designer paper from my stash before adhering it to the card base.
You can see the wonderful prizes we have on offer by visiting the challenge blog, where you will also see what the rest of the team is sharing this mid-month! Some really delightful creations!
Before I sign off for today, here is a text I copied from my teamie Brenda about recent commenting troubles on blogger:
"Most of us have probably encountered the recent problems with publishing comments when we go to peoples blogs.
Well one of my challenge teamies came across a possible solution whilst she was out in blogland, I have tried it on my own blog and it certainly does seem to make comments much quicker to publish. So this is the information she passed on:
In the settings on your blog select 'posts, comments and sharing, select 'comment location' and from the drop down menu select 'pop up window' then save.
As I mentioned above I obtained this info second hand, but I am sure the originator will be happy for us all to share as it will make life much easier for all of us, so please feel free to lift the above and share."
Thanks for visiting,
hope you have a wonderful day!
