Hope your day is just ducky...

This is the card I made for my granddaughter's 12th birthday, which is in a couple of days (she's already seen it, so it's ok to post). It was not done with my Silhouette, but just some simple measurements, cuts and dies.

I just love these little duck dies. I cut the mama duck out of some white cardstock and inked the edges with a little gray ink. I also colored her beak and feet with a gold alcohol marker.

The baby ducks were cut out of yellow cardstock and I added some darker gold ink to the wings and edges of the cuts.

In this somewhat blurry photo, you can see how the wings are lifted up and given some dimension with some pop-dots.

The dies (unbranded) cut holes for the eyes, so I simply added some black cardstock behind the holes.

The flowers were made with a punch and some enamel dots for the centers and the vines were made with a Cheery Lynn die.

The clouds, fence, hot air balloon and label shapes are all unbranded dies.

My computer is back in the shop - it has been experiencing some screen issues where the darkest parts of the screen show up as a pixelated red color when it is "awakened" from sleep mode. This is the second time I've had it in for this issue. aaaaarghhh. I am now working from my husband's computer, which means I don't have access to all the photos on mine, nor do I have access to my Silhouette Cameo software. double aaaaarghhh.

Oh well, this too shall pass. Hopefully.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

What an adorable card Cheryl! What a bummer that your computer is in the shop, I know how frustrating it is! Technology, . . . can't live with it, can't live without it . . . or is that supposed to be men? Never mind, you have still managed to produce, and post a real beauty for us! I hope your computer is returned to you soon in full working order! Have a great day my friend! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx
