I was making a card for Mojo Monday's sketch challenge and came up with two. I dont know if they will allow two entries but I will try and if not it doesn't really matter as I will find someone to give it to anyway to.. I used papers from K&Co (Amy Butler) and my MS paper punch. Thats about it. Thanks for looking.
I am a bit mopey today. Dang it, I'm really SAD!! IN fact, I can't stop bawling. My little Ping is gone and I know he's "only a duck" but he was my favorite duck (a charcoal Indian Runner) and the runt. I raised all four of them from only a couple days old in my bathtub. And now they are nearly full grown and stay outside and have full run of the pond.
The worst of it is, I don't know what happened. He's just gone. There's no dog pawprints near the water. Nothing. It could have been a bird of prey or maybe a Cottonmouth or a really big snapping turtle....I don't know...and it really bothers me. We got the kayak out and searched the pond and looked under bushes etc but no sign of him.
At one point I thought I saw him. I saw a dark duck happily playing in the pond quite a ways off and thought just MAYBE he got adventurous! But then this duck (merely a visitor) flew off. (something that Ping can't do yet as his feathers aren't fully grown.
I'll get over it eventually...but today I'm sad.
