Little Love Duck

Pin It

Happy Thursday!  It’s time for the new Meljen’s Designs challenge.  This week we have a super fun and super easy challenge for you – ANYTHING GOES!      

For my project this week I used the digital image Little Love Duck.    He is so cute and makes me think of spring.  Check out those cute rain boots. 


As is my habit lately, I made 2 of this card too.   Since they both are the same, I’ll save you from having to look at both.  1 is for my stash and 1 is for OWH or my daughter’s school fundraiser.

I got some good news this week.  I finally can return to working out.  (Insert  happy dance here!  or should I say insert a Jazzercise dance here?)  I had foot surgery at the end of September, got a stress fracture over the holidays, and then injured myself by tripping up the stairs.    I can finally go back to working out on a limited basis.  Hurray!  I am so happy to be heading back.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

What a cutie this is, Cheryl! Great combination of colors and papers, and that little duck is totally adorable. Great idea to make two of these to meet your crafting goals more easily -- I think I might have to take a page out of your book there! Thanks for sharing this with us at Tuesday Throwdown. I hope you'll join us again next week! :-)

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
