Happy Hatch Day!

Hi Again!
 You all thought you were rid of me, didn't you? lol 
For last post about hatching click here.
This card was made last month when I thought I had a brood of ducks hatching. Then when that didn't happen I saved it for my next brood. Well one has hatched and I thought well, good enough, I can't sit on this card forever, can I? It may not be the three pictured but there you go.

This digi is a fantastic one (IMHO) by Tammy of A day For Daisies. Some of you will remember it from my blogaversary a few weeks ago. I just think its the sweetest thing ever, (aside from my real ducks of course!)
I have used Prismacolor pencils to color it and the papers are all DCWV. The sentiment is by TLC.
I know, I know, ducks have bills not beaks, but give me a little creative licence, ok? How many people would catch that, anyway?

And check out this little duck button embellie I created with assorted buttons and a feather from a willing pet duck. :-) Pretty cute, right?

Inside finished! tada!
