Happy Thursday, everyone!  I can’t believe it’s May already!   It certainly has started off wet!  Hope you and your families are safe and sound, wherever you are….there has been some unbelievable weather out there this week!  Great weather for ducks…..and that’s why I put one on my card today, LOL!  I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch created by Karren….and I just love it!

My friend needed a baby card and I thought it would nice to make one that wasn’t the typical pink or blue (plus I didn’t know the gender, LOL!), so I used some textured Pistachio Pudding cardstock with Birthday Basics DP, along with the little duck from the retiring Storybook Friends:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Storybook Friends Stampin Up

This little image is so cute!!  I did flip the sketch so he wasn’t looking out into nowhere, though!   I added two little ribbons, colored the image a wee bit and added the sentiment.  I cut all the sentiments apart in this set because they are so interchangeable and fun!  I added an embossed border using Delicate Designs EF and it was done!

Just a couple of views of my yard during yesterday’s deluge:

  1. Adorable card!
    What creek are you near or is all of that rain? I use to live next to the Brandywine. People would have to come home in boats when it would rain like that.
    Stay warm and dry!

  10. Yikes. That water is scary. I LOVE this cute duck card though. Green was a super fun color choice; pink and blue are boring! :)
