Hello and welcome to some new followers. I'm so delighted you wanted to visit here, and hope that you will enjoy what you see posted! Our day is a bit on the gray, gloomy drizzly side, for more reasons than just the weather. But I don't discuss politics or religion here, will content myself with saying I am a Christian. So on to brighter things, like the card specs: The stamp is Penny Black Overdressed Duck, colored with copics. Diecut with Spellbinders Classic Oval, mat is glitter paper, diecut with a S/Binder Scalloped Oval. The red Bazzil cardbase was embossed with a Darice Holly EF. Design paper is from Graphic 45, purchased last year(?). The paper was some snippets that were handy to cut into the rectangles for this card. The sentiment is diecut from S/binder beaded ovals, stamped in Memento red (Love Letter) with a new Our Daily Bread Design stamp that I received yesterday. Can't wait to play with the other stamps in this Bundle. I'm going to pop over to the Playground, see what Pixie's snippet girls are up to...Penny Black & More has a challenge going on that I think this may meet the requirements of Any Die will Do, so I'm linking there also.
I had seen this delightful stamp at Stamping for Pleasure and thought it was just the cutest image. Found it online along with another PB duck, had to get it! Thanks Sandra, for such enabling!!!
 On another note, let me say a big Thank You to Pam at Pumpys Blog for the chance to win a digi stamp in her 50th Wedding Anniversary Challenge. She did a random selection, and my name showed up. Hurray! It had to be random, because my card was so simple, and she had some awesome entries submitted. If I had looked at the entries, I would have been so intimidated to venture entering my own!!! Maybe if I bestir myself, I can have another card ready later this evening. In the meantime, have a Blessed Day.

  6. Hello Mary,

    Another lovely card, this little duck is such a sweet PB image and you have coordinated the colouring beautifully to blend with your background papers.

    I know I've got this stamp somewhere gathering dust, so I think I should get it out again having seen your pretty card.
