Quack

I took that wretched Elf down to the Locksmiths and he has now been fitted with an Electronic Tag. If he so much as makes one wrong move I will know about it!


I was having severe withdrawal symptoms after Beccy's  month of holiday cards ended so I sat and made another card today.
Stamp is one of my Favourite Penny Black stamps which I have coloured up with my promarkers and silver stickles.  The paper is from an LOTV pad called Krafty Christmas given to me by my daughter.The bow was in my stash.
I can live with one duck. The frogs won't mind sharing the pond with him.

He may as well make himself useful!

Aud Sentiments #217 Christmas or winter sentiment.

Oh Dear I see you have L'th back again the year, I do hope that the addition of the tag/lock helps (I somehow doubt it though). I love the card that you've made here and the stamp you've used.

Sounds like those elvesare being naughty again although with being away and poor internet I've missed out on their antics. Nice to see you've got a helper to hold up your card, love the image.

I haven't been following long enough to know the story behind the elf but from the comments it must be a good one! I was having withdrawal symptoms too so I moved on to the Bugaboo challenge. It's only for a week but so far so good. Love that duck. And such a cute sentiment! Have a great week!

Fun post and glad you've got Elf tagged and that he is helping out x Adorable card and what a cute image, with a fun sentiment x

Margreet said...

The elf has been locked well (I suppose), so it is expected to be quiet (???).
Your card is gorgeous. Love it!

Great idea to tag the elf. You would think he would be afraid to make one wrong move now, but time will tell! The duck is adorable and I love the glitter. That is a beautiful frame.

Do you know how to communicate with a fish?

You drop it a line.
