Quacked Up.

I think I'm losing the plot here.
My True love has sent me another seven ducks disguised as a Wreath this time. I'm nobody's fool though and spotted them right away!


It is ever so kind of you all to come to my rescue and take a few ducks for me. Kathleen has said she has 4 water butts going free.( I took the liberty of sending three on ahead of your offer Kath so another duck is on it's way!! )
The post office is beginning to smell a Rat/ Duck with the amount of Parcels I have been taking down each day.  Maybe My True Love will lose interest and give up before day 12.
The stamp is of course by Penny Black 'Caroling Duck' coloured with my promarkers and a green  glitter glue.  The bow is from Spellbinders  S4-578 Set, zig zig circle and sentiment die are from Sizzix 659733 set. Foliage is by Crealies from their CL CS 16 set of leaves. Gems from my stash.

You are certainly having fun (or hassle) with these ducks. I hope none of them are destined for the table though!!! Great card idea too.

Great card. Good news that you are still managing to find somewhere for all those ducks. I wish you luck on your True Love losing interest! I can see lots more ducks arriving soon.

Donna said...

How clever! A wreath made from ducks! An aperture card. I always forget how cute they can be. Well as the days go by you could acquire a lot more ducks I'm afraid. Not sure I have an answer as to what to do with them all. Have a wonderful weekend!

Valery, I am quacking up over these ducks. You are so inventive and I love this story. This wreath is adorable.
I can't remember what jokes I've sent you now. I have a few more but they may be repeats.

What did the janitor say when he popped out of the closet?

Supplies!

This is one of my favorites.

Donna said...

A caroling duck arrived at my house today. Is that something to do with you? I popped him in the pond with my other two but they want to know if he is going to sing all night and keep them awake?

Definitely some quackery going on there Mrs A, with this duckathon! Think this true love of yours needs the boot, right into a butt full of duck perhaps 😉
Clever card indeed! I’m wondering how much planning you put into this, as it imaginative indeed.
Hugs Shaz in Oz.x

Hi Mrs. A, a super fun card love the ducks all around the wreath, is it me or am I the only one who noticed that only one is full bodied, what have you done with the rest of those poor ducks? Stuffed them for Christmas I suppose! :-) Have a wonderful week... Megan
