You quack me up!


     Hope things are just ducky with you cause they sure are here.  This week at There She Goes I am the featured Trendsetter and today starts off with a brand new challenge.  I'm sure that lots of you know by now that I LOVE blue and yellow as a color combo.  Well that's the theme I chose for this weeks challenge.  Use any shades of blue and yellow plus a neutral.  I've chosen black for mine cause I'm just stuck on black matting at the moment.  LOL


     This little ducky and sentiment are from one of the latest TSG releases "Lucky Duck" and I can tell you that I am just as much in love with this set as the bear one so you'll be seeing more quakers around here.  I used last week great Mojo Monday sketch.
     So gather up your blues and yellows and hop on over to the TSG blog to play along with this weeks challenge.  You just might be our lucky winner and nab a $5.00 gift voucher to the TSG store.  Be sure to check out what my awesome team mates have created to inspire you too.
    I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Robyn's Fetish--anything goes
Catch the Bug--anything goes
Creative Moments--things with wings
Twisted Tuesday--animals and flowers
Make It Monday--anything goes

     Happy Monday!
Supplies:  Papers--My Mind's Eye "Blue Floral", Recollections, Georgeia pacific, Copic Xpress-it Blending card; Stamps:  There She Goes "Lucky Duck"; Ink--Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black; Tools--Nestabilities Standard Circels, Classic Scalloped Circles, Classic Ovals, and Lacey Ovals; MFT Sentiment Strips; EK Success Corner Rounder; Miscellaneous--Wal-mart buttons, Kraft Outlet Bakers Twine

The black matting does totally pop, so I understand your latest love. Totally adore that sweet little image and love all the layers and shapes you used here. Great detailing with the paper piercing, too!

Ros Crawford said...

This is just so cute ... I can't help smiling at that little duck and your sentiment is perfect!

Bonnie Irvine said...

Adorable!! Love the sweet image and fun sentiment. The mix of colours and patterns is gorgeous and the black matting is so crisp. I love how you vary the shapes of the layers and the way the matting varies from straight to scalloped to open and lacy. It makes the card so much more interesting. One of the smartest moves I've made lately was to buy a couple of your cards. I've learned so much from studying them. The quality is amazing, Tracy. Love 'em.
