This card was made for Phindy's weekly challenge, which happens to be:
I could go for some water right now its stinkin hot out and my only pool is reserved for my ducks.(as is my bathtub but we wont go there. lol)
Sentiment: My own
Punch: Martha Stewart
Ribbon: Crafty Ribbons
So how cute is this, right? I decided to make the little girl AA, her hair lended itself toward it, actually I think that's what she's supposed to be anyway. As you can see, I'm still a bit nervous about making the skin too dark. I will eventually get my courage up to make a true black skinned character. But not today. :-)
A close up:
I had trouble copy and pasting my sentiment into the format I needed to share it so that the structure was distorted. I tried several different ways but in the end ditched the project. I think it was due to an incompatible font. Anyway, sorry, no sentiment to share today. :-( Its the thought that counts.

And a little snoop around the craft space. Stacey came over the other day to craft and look at the mess she made. LOL
OK. The mess is mine. At one point she came over to my side of the table and took away my garbage bin. She said, "I'll take this since you're not using it anyway." The cheek!
I did clean up afterwards. :-) Really. But you'll have to trust me on that one.
It was worth it, though.
And a duckie update:
(this is inside the pen which is about 20 feet by 20 feet.)
Yes, the water is murky but is pumped from the pond and this is the South and all pond water is brown.
It's just how it is.
And a nasty snapping turtle I caught the other day. This guy is nasty!!
He will rip a finger off no questions asked.
My fingers came nowhere near him, btw.
OK, I guess I delayed you long enough!
Have fun crafting everyone!
