Just Ducky!

Okay, Friends... I must say I have pulled an all-nighter - haven't done that in a looooong time, but I was having sooooo much fun, i just couldn't stop! Sweet hubby came downstairs and said "Didn't I leave you in that same spot 7 hours ago?" - YUP, yes siree-bubby, you sure did! :) :) :) He promptly made a "full" pot of double-strength coffee - yes, he's a keeper, that's for sure!
Okay on to the deets of this card - but I must preface it by saying, I made three of these - hence the all-nighter, and still have two more to go (for the five children/families) for Spring/Easter. The darling image is from Sassy Cheryl "Duck Dance" and can be found in her $2 bargain bin - I purchased it a few months ago in anticipation of Spring/Easter cards :)
 I also used Gerda's images from Stamp Fairy for the carrots and eggs. The sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC/tlcCreations via Free Digital Stamps and thought it was absolutely perfect for this card - "Hope your day is just Ducky"!
My sweet friend punched a bunch of MS fences for me, and this card just screamed "use the fence" - LOL - Thank you my sweet friend, KathyCan! While Skype-scrapping with Kathy, we started going through our stash and I found the metal ribbon/bow charm - I know I've had it for over 10 years!
I did have to travel outside to the "scrap-shed" - yes... I have a 10x20 tough shed full of scrap supplies :/ We will be having a HUGE garage sale next month, as everything we have must go - so we can hit the RV retirement road - we are so excited! Anyway, back on track - the card is a center step card - love this fold and followed the tutorial on You Tube by Frances Byrne - great tutorial! Cut the image with my Spellbinder nestie classic circles and then matted it with the Lacey circle - of course, with my Cuttlebug.
"Hope your day is just Ducky"
Love,
Wendy

Oh WOW! Lucky you! my Hubby wouldn't let me pull an all night-er :( he would get lonely in bed and I know at some point come whinging. Love what you have done with this, it is so bright and colorful and just gorgeous, so I can also get why you had to make 5 lol. I love how you have used the egg images as embellishments too! Ohh I just love it all :)) Thank you for sharing with us and playing at Moving Along With The Times :)
