Well today is the birthday of a very special guy. He is the son of a special friend of mine and I just knew I wanted to make him a special card. Have I used the word "Special" a bit too much? lol Well only they (and a select few) know how special they are. Anyway as I type this it is his actual birthday but by the time I post this his day will be over. That is basically due to some personal issues I had here and could not complete the card in time to slip it in the mail. Plus I know the mom will see it here so I want her to see it first as her son opens it and not on my blog. Anyway just a little back story on the card. He loves ducks! Frequently he goes with his dad to see the ducks so I knew a card with ducks would be the way to go. But guy cards are so hard for me to come up with since I love pretty shiny things like bling and flowers. I'm also more of a fancy fold type of gal so I knew the card would be one of those and I'm not a huge stamper. I know......the horror!!!! A card maker who doesn't stamp much! I think I'm more of a "Papercrafter Carder". Anyway back to the card. Before the Pandemic I had visited my Tuesday Morning and I had found this stamp and die set.Well I wasn't sure if I'd actually use the stamp part of it as far as the girl and the fence but I thought the duck or geese (whatever those are) could be used for something and they had matching dies. Then in my box of dies I also had this die someone had gifted me. Its a duck in water, no name die and no idea where she got it. I asked but she said it was from a garage sale so sorry no info on that one. So I mixed and matched and came up with this.Not bad for a Guy birthday. I might even do this again if I need a guy card.
Now I need to get this in the mail A.S.A.P.
Til next time..................................................
