LUCKY DUCK!!!!



Here's another "sneak peek" at what's being released from Stampin'Up! in April. This image and the greeting are both from the same set I featured on my post from yesterday, "Wagon Full of Fun". Isn't this little duck adorable??? I love the way he artist has his head tilted upward and captured such a delighted expression on his face. I envision another card with him standing under an umbrella, peeking out looking up to see that the sun has come out. The outside greeting would say "Heard you've been under the weather!" and the inside would read "Not to worry, sunny days will be here soon!"


I know I've NEVER said this before - but I ADORE MY KOH-I-NOR PENCILS!!!! Seriously! Look at the duck's head. That is 3 different colors - but you can't tell where one color ends and the next one begins because these pencils blend together so beautifully. Just gotta love them!


If you'd like to see a couple of other ideas for this guy, check out these cards made by:
Mercy Kerin - wonderful job of coloring!
Daotz - very cute idea!!!! (Also gives you peeks at other stamps in this set.)
Bev Rousch - look how she used the button!
