A quick little card to show you, using an image by Mo Manning.
I've had a busy week with my Mum and Dad visiting so haven't been crafting but this is a card I made a while back for a Mo challenge that ended up getting changed around because of the blog hop we had. Its all good. We need spare cards for times like this! lol
I'm using paper by DCWV and all my coloring is done with Prismacolors.
Punch is Martha Stewart and the die is a nestie that I cut into a bit to make it look more "bone-like".

Ps) my 15 baby ducklings that I ordered will arrive this week sometime. I will take pictures of the sweeties and share them ASAP.
(I do have eggs waiting to hatch too, but that will be in about two weeks)
Meanwhile I am still trying to root out all the snapping turtles from our pond which is proving a gargantum (sp?) task. This "safe" trap I have which doesn't kill the turtles is apparently not as foolproof as they let on.
I caught one small turtle yesterday (about 7 or 8 inches long) and left him in there as it's supposed to draw more turtles into the trap but this morning when I checked the trap the fish I put in was gone and so was the turtle. So if that dinky turtle got himself out well.....man, I could scream. We have 8 ducks left .At least 4 or 5 of my "old gang" had "gone missing" one by one and of the 8 we have left, 4 limp with turtle injuries.
A snapping turtle will, unfortunately, kill even adult ducks. I've seen them so I know.
As much as I want to "have a heart" and be kind to the turtles, I'm feeling my options dwindling as I love my ducks. Especially as new ones arrive on the scene.
Sorry to go on and on...I'm a bit obsessed. lol
Have a great weekend everyone!
