Waddle I Do Without You??


I really had fun playing with this image last night! These duckies are the cutest!! He's called the I Dunno Duck and he looks so innocent and sweet, doesn't he??

I pulled out my Basic Grey Oh Baby Boy patterned papers for this card and I just LOVE the combination of soft colours in them. I stamped the Duck in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on Shimmery White cardstock and coloured him in using Certainly Celery for the grass, Barely Banana for his feathers, Apricot Appeal for his webbed feet, Summer Sun for his beak and Sahara Sand for shading. Then I doodled a simple wavy frame with my Basic Black journaler. I matted him twice on the BG yellow and on Certainly Celery. The card base is a 5 1/2 inch square card in Certainly Celery. I took the upper half of the matting which is the BG yellow and ran it through the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder in my Cuttlebug and then used the striped pattern for the bottom. I wrapped some light orange polka dot grosgrain ribbon around the middle and tied a little bow off to the right side. I added three Prima flowers in different colours and sizes and attached them with big yellow brads. I stamped the sentiment 'Waddle I Do Without You?' on Certainly Celery, cut out the strip and used my corner rounder on the ends and since the piece was so narrow, it made sort of a rounded point on each end, which looks kinda cool! I pop dotted our little duckie and he's all set!! I'm really lovin' the colour combo and this little guy!!

Okay, so I've been tagged like at least five times over the last week, so I'd better hurry up and do it!!! I'm supposed to tell you 7 things about myself and since I already played this game once, I'll try to think up 7 more things.....hmmmmmm.

1. I was a cheerleader in high school and I dated the captain of the football team. No, seriously.
2. I am terrified of snakes and I almost hyperventilate when I see one....even at the zoo. I don't care how big or how small they are...they freak me out!!
3. My favourite band is Barenaked Ladies......my favourite male artist is Bryan Adams.....both Canadian! I've seen them both in concert and they are as awesome in concert as they are on their albums!!
4. We are movie-a-holics at our house.....we have 200+. I work in the reference department at my library and there are certain patrons who always have questions about movies, like ..... they know an actor and the basis for the movie but not the title, and they always come to me. And I can usually tell them what movie it is and if we have it in the library collection without even looking it up on the computer! Haha! Just one of the many trivial skills I offer!!
5. My favourite actor is Matthew McConnaghey........I love him for his body, not his acting abilities........at least I'm honest!! *wink*
6. I'm a reality TV nut too and right now I'm totally into the 8th season of Big Brother which just started last Sunday.........anyone else??
7. Lastly......hmmmm........I was bitten by a dog when I was 3 years old. It was a german shepherd who bit my face and tore the back of my ear away from the side of my head. Thankfully I only have a teeny tiny scar left to show for it AND I still love dogs!!!

Okay, that's it for today!! Don't forget to enter in THIS POST to win some of the new High Hopes Rubber Stamps new releases!!!

I am a movie aholic too! I love movies and seek them out. I am terrified of large dogs...as far as I know I was never bitten by one like you were (that I know of) but they just send shivers up my spine!

I love that card! The little duck is posed so cute and the colors are so perfect for him! Such a bright and cheery card!

WOW! that is a lot of movies! I don't like snakes either, they creep me out- they just have that look in their soulless eyes that makes me think they are going to hurt me hehe. Love your card and your cuttlebugging with it!

Another adorable card. I'm a big fan of Bare Naked Ladies... and Matthew McConaughey. Of course his bod is a nice little benefit, but it's his voice that gets me!

Oh my gosh, I think I have found the only other person who watches Big Brother. LOVE IT! I missed the very first show of this season, but did catch the second. We have something else in common too. I was bit by a german shephard as a child as well. He bit a whole in my arm and tore my back up pretty good. Well, here's hoping Big Bro #8 is as good as the past seasons.

I love all your new High Hopes cards. The images are darling. Your work is fantastic. I love movies too, and was also bitten by a dog years ago. It was not a bad bite, just a little nip. I am still leary of little dogs. I like big dogs.
