I love DUCKS! I always wanted ducks, but unfortunately I have never lived on a farm. Still got time to get my farm and have my ducks! I take pictures of ducks all the time. Like this weekend during our little hike.

 Participating in this hop finally gave me the incentive to use the CTMH Duck Stamps I bought a couple years ago. And here are the results:

I made a set of five individual cards using the CTMH Duck stamps. I used TOMBO markers to color them, and then using my Creative Circle Cutter, I cut them out into circles, as well as cut two shades of blue glitter paper and white bling paper as mats. I found some old bubbles and rain drops embellishments I had laying around. I inked everything with a cat eye. I used pop dots to pop up a few of the bubbles.

Now, head on over to Beckie, to see her quackeriffic project she has to quack you up.

Love the cards Barbara! The duck is so cute! Reminds me of Big Bird from Seasame Street, but the baby version!!

The glitter card is very effective as the bubbles and the colouring you've done is fab!

Well done!
