DUCKS AND FEATHERS


Afternoon everyone...I feel really out of sorts with myself today just can't seem to get myself motivated but the sun is coming out now so hopefully I will buck my ideas up this afternoon. ....it might have something to do with the fact my mum asked me to make a card for a man....and I'm so not good at men/boy cards...

Anyway this is what I came up with....





Its really not one of my greatest achievements but I thought I would show it anyway. The image is a Crafty Individuals stamp that I've had for quite a while and never got round to inking up. I used Distress Inks to age the edges of the image and the cream card. I found a few feathers while cleaning out a drawer the other day and as you can see they have come in quite handy here. The sentiment is LOTV and I just added a brad and some ribbon.

I was going to colour both ducks with Distress Ink but decided against it but next time I think I'll give it ago. The card is for my Great Uncle who always likes to receive a hand made card so I hope he likes this one.

And look what the postman brought me this morning....




I was lucky enough to win Fleur's blog candy and its wonderful....I'm sure I'll have great fun creating something with all these lovely goodies....I can feel a black and white creation coming on. Thank you so much Fleur....

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:~

Divas By Design Challenge ~ # 8 ~ Birthdays
