Spring duck...

This spring duck is all decked out with her basket of posies. I think she is so
adorable in her colored dress against the white embossed backdrop.

I finished my sweet spring duck during my weekend up north to visit my friend Alexa. This weekend entailed lots of $$$ being spent at a fun stamp convention and then hours of stamping in her "creative cave." I really hated to leave because I had many more ideas in my mind and was having too much fun!.

  1. Since I was lucky enough to see this card "in person", I know how fabulous it is first hand. Yes, two friends getting together and making cards and sipping wine (and maybe a lemon drop martini or two) is truly a perfect weekend. I was so inspired, being with my talented friend, that I continued with our recreating all of the Go-to-sketches challenges in last spring's magazine and finished making numbers 56 through 61. I am very pleased with the results. Thanks for joining me at the Stamp/Scrap show.
