Sorry about another dark picture....another wind / rain storm is on the way (ugh!) and the sky is getting very dark! Mercy's sketch this week is another "long" card. I had fun with the last one as it is always good to get out of the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card size rut. For this sketch I dug through my Costco DP pack again (I have a lot to go through so I'm trying to use it LOL!) and found this fun baby boy DP. It's hard to believe my "baby" is now 9 years old, but he is all boy and only has two speeds - go and sleep LOL! He is my bouncy child and my little ray of sunshine with a big smile who loves life and lives it to the fullest :D
The duckie is part of a Studio G stamp set I picked up at Michaels. He is too cute and yes, reminds me of the duckie my son played with (and sometimes still plays with) in the bathtub. I coloured him with Twinkling H2Os and used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the blue mat to give the focal image a big off texture. I scalloped the horizontal panel and added a white bow on each side of the focal image. I didn't have the right size sentiment or type of script to work with this card so I added a safety pin for the corner feature. I used to have safety pins with various baby colours on the head but couldn't find them anywhere so I had to settle for the plain ones. However, I like how it finished things off.
We are quickly approaching a very busy time of year, so I greatly appreciate your taking the time to stop by (((hugs))). Have a fabulous day :D
