Oh Quacker Tree!

Ok. I will just come straight out with it. My True Love has sent to me another consignment  of Caroling  Ducks. He thought he could get round  me by disguising them as a Christmas Tree!
  No such luck. I can spot a duck a mile off.

Now what am I going to do with another 6 ducks. I have managed to get rid/rehome some of the others . Christine said she would take a few ducks on her pond. Many Thanks Christine your a star.
I still have 2 on the pond, 1 in the water barrel and 3 in the stream. There is also one in the watering can and even one sitting in the birds water bowl.

The stamp is of course Penny Black's Caroling Duck, coloured using my promarkers, gold glitter glue and a gold marker pen. Gold sticker star from my stash along with the gold pearls. The design paper is by Sally Moret.

Disguised ducks are still ducks. He just can't seem to get the point! They are cute though. Today's hats are so pretty in green with gold gems.

I don't always have time to comment Mrs A but I cannot miss visiting just to see if your true love will ever get the message - I suspect not! Clever disguise - just not quite clever enough!!! Take care - and keep them out of the bath tub!!!! Christine x

Another quaker card to brighten my day, it is a charming as can be Mrs. A.! I like the green/gold theme.

Aquarius said...

Clever stuff!! I suppose you can be grateful there are only twelve days of Christmas - unless of course inflation has kicked in this year!!!

Kathleen said...

How brilliant is this, go to the top of the class with a gold star.
Can you freeze them, it will be getting on for 12 months Sunday lunch sorted by the time you have finished!
I have four water buts if you are really desperate.

Suze said...

Good idea for a disguise - but not good enough. Your true love isn't really letting up on those ducks is he

I suspect that Kathleen will have some ducks headed her way.

Great card.

Seven more ducks tomorrow - where will you put them?

Sandra H said...

Lol ooh Mrs A l just love this post and your card is just adorable do not send any of those remaining ducks to the table xx

Carol L said...

Your quacker tree is just too much fun and a delightful creation! Brilliant and oh so much fun! Love this Mrs A :)

Donna said...

This is so creative Mrs. A. Ducks in a tree. I have four rain barrels that could house some ducks if you want to send a few more to Indiana. LOL! And another rain barrel at our house in town so that would be 5. You are convincing me that I might need this stamp. Really cute! Have a great day!

Donna Ellis said...
