Sentimental Sundays~ Cute and Cuddly

Hi Guys!
 Are you having a good weekend? Gettting any time to craft? Or are some of you still shoveling snow?
The challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays is an easy one:
Cute and Cuddly
Now some of you may take exception to my duck card and say that there's nothing cuddly about a duck but I can assure you otherwise! Why just a few days ago I was feeding my ducks and one of my big white Pekings just flew into my arms! It was very sweet and cuddly of him. Unfortunately this display of affection caught both of us off guard and we both sort of shrieked/squawked  and jumped back.

So anyway! My recipe:
Image: Penny Black
Colorants: Prismacolors
Papers: DCWV
ribbon and buttons: from my stash

Here's a close up of the sentiment:

That's it for today!
I would like to join in on these challenges:
Shannons Sentiments: Spring Colors
Creations By Gill: pets (yes, ducks are pets!)
Totally Gorgeous: Spring Has Sprung
Alphabet Challenge: U for things that go up in the air (birds go up, yes?)
Fairy Fun: Spring
Fuzzy Wuzzy: Animals with sketch

Cute - and cuddly too!
When we go to a sea nearby on hot summerdays, there are always ducks running around... they´re so cute! And very pretty! I´d love to pet them, but I don´t dare - they´re not used to close human contact - but I love watching them :-)

Oh what a fabulous card Dorcas, sweet image and colours.

Julie said...

Being a lover of ducks I am inclined to agree though I think if one had tried flying into my arms I might have just freaked! I so struggle with mixing patterned papers,if only you lived down the road you could share some handy tips with me. Have a great week,Julie.x

Hey Dorcas. How are you doing sweetie. Just poppin in to say "Hi" and to say that I love your card today. I love the clouds and have tried to make them myself, but I am not having much luck with it. Is there something that I am missing I wonder. I am gonna go back and look back over the tutorial here again. Thanks for making it for the visually challenges people like me. Lol. Love this duckie. So beautiful.
