Quacki Five '0'

Well My True Love seems to have gotten part of the message at least  and only sent along one duck today.
Huh!!

 Have you ever heard the expession  'Don't count your Chickens/ Ducks before they have all hatched'?
Design papers are all freebies from a magazine but not sure which one. Coloured with my promarkers and silver stickles with a bit of silver washi tape bling. The star I found dropped on the ground along the school run route so it went into my pocket. Cleaned it up and put a bit of sparkle on it.
Where am I suppossed to put another five ducks. I need to start farming them out so watch your postboxes a duck or two could be winging their merry way to you as we speak.

Time for the girls in the Christmas card club to show our last card for the current year . Slyvie asked for cute so I'm hoping that 5 Caroling Ducks are deemed as being cute. (Well they are if you don't hear them singing!). Sorry post is a bit late girls but it is a bit busy here at the moment having to keep all these ducks fed and finding water for them to swim on.

Oh, Anne, you do a heart good with the laughter that you bring! I'm finally out from under my Christmas cardalanche so I've caught up on your fun duck and elf posts! I'm impressed that you can keep two story lines going so effectively and that you can design the ducks so beautifully while tending to that mischievous little dickens!! 🎄Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell

Aquarius said...

Oh dear, and still they keep arriving! At least they are cute for the challenge. Had to smile about the star you just happened to pick up in the road - just the sort of thing I'd do - can't let anything remotely useful go to waste!!!

Liz said...

What a cute card, Mrs A. Your little ducks are simply adorable. Like Val, I had to smile when I read about you picking up the star. :-) xx

Kathleen said...

This card is so cute, Vallery Ann but so is this post. You have a gift for writing!

The ducks are very, very cute and so is the idea to showcase them this way. Love the star and its story!

Suze said...

I think your true love has an idea that you have a lake rather than a pond!

Another lovely card. Love that some of the ducks are hidden when you first look at the card. Looking forward to the sixth day to see what you come up with.

Love how you recycled that star. I can't let things go to waste either.

Greta said...

Oh my--so, so cute, Mrs A!

Christine Harrop said...

I've got a pond you can make use of Mrs A. What a "thoughtful" tru love you have - or should that be "thoughtless"? Anyway, you are certainly keeping us amused and this one is great. Hugs Christine xx

Donna said...

HaHa! More ducks, oh my! You do them so well though. I'm sure they have a good home for you. And definitely cute, cute, cute. Love that you pick things up and use them for cards! I'm not alone. LOL! Hope you have a wonderful week. We are back from the 95th birthday party several pounds heavier unfortunately. Not a good thing before Christmas.

Donna Ellis said...
