Quack over the Eight!

After last nights debacle so much for a Silent Night. Well, The Doc was out like a light after the first verse but  the ducks were having so much fun and as warm as toast under the duvet that they decided to go onto rendering the full repertoire of 'Lulaby of Broadway'. (most famous version is by Doris Day 1951). One of the darn ducks  was ever so slightly out of tune, not by much but that's all it took!!
I sent today's  lorry load of ducks straight out into the forest.

Stamp by Penny Black 'Caroling Ducks' coloured using my Graph'it marker pens on watercolour card. The tree die is by Leane Creatief  Art.nr 45.8930 . I die cut several out and then drew round them to create the background forest. I drew in the detailing freehand using a black lead pencil.   Coloured four of them up to put in the foreground. The sun was made using a 1.5 circle hole punch as a mask. Silver glitter glue on the ducks hats , trees and snow to give a bit of sparkle. ( Getting those ducks to stay still was a nightmare. Unfortunately I didn't manage to lose any.)
I'm already dreading tomorrow.

Mm, ducks in wood should do it, hopefully Mrs A.
Another suggestion is to put the lot on a slow boat to China with plenty of coal to get them there!! Hope the carolling is sweeter tonight and you are out like a light!
Christmas hugs,

Adorable! Such a fun card and I can almost hear them caroling. Thanks for the cute jokes, I'll share them with my grands. They just roll their eyes when I tell corny jokes now! And you know what - I always loved Doris Day.
