Remember this card?

I whined on in my blog post when I first used the die set that the eyes were far too large for the little ducks. And yesterday I stumbled over the reason WHY!

  - Click to enlarge
Them weren't eyes, them were wheels! No wonder the little die set came with so many of them - asses ears are pointed straight up into the air here :)

This made me laugh Di, but I'm sure I'm just as daft at times.

Oh Di, you certainly have me chuckling... but then I am just as guilty of wearing a dunce's cap at times! Now you've found some wheels you'll be able to use those ducks in a whole new way. Can't wait to see your next card xx

Krisha said...

Ah ah ah!!! :D I remember this card so well, I thought they were plastic duck, as those that babies have in their bath! Instead they have gears :D
Fun die set! :)

Kathleen said...

I certainly remember this lovely card but I never thought the eyes were too large in the first place but a great lol and well done you for telling us, you didn't need to but it brought many giggles.

Aquarius said...

Often your posts make me smile but this one was a classic - an easy mistake to make though I'm sure!!

Liz said...

ROTFL! That's the sort of thing I'd do! xx

Lia said...

I could have happened to me.....!! But I like the swimming ducks as well as the ones on their wheels!

Kathyk said...

So, the wheels on the ducks go round and round! Still a cute card - glad you solved the mystery!

Hi Di,
I think we can all relate to something like this in our crafting journey.
That's one of the things that make crafting so much fun that we can laugh at ourselves and others when we get something wrong.
Love this wonderful card even without the wheels, and ducks wern't meant to have wheels they have webbed feet. lol.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

This just made my day. Adorable card. Fantastic story!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Haha, that's so funny, Di! You're awesome! Very cute card!

Mrs A. said...

Oh Di, the asses ears are firmly pointed up in the air here too. Remember the little scottie/westie die I have just done a card with? Well it turns out that the bow is meant to go on top of the dogs head and not on the collar. I thought it was a tight fit!!!!!! What are we like. Hugs Mrs A.

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

Hee hee, we live and learn, indeed! Ever so sweet!

Karenladd said...

Haha! This just made me laugh. I've had the same kind of problem, where I used something incorrectly and thought it was a design flaw. That's why I try to find samples of die cut designs before I stumble along and try to figure out how it all goes together. Good thing you didn't try to use the large wheels as eyes!!

Pam said...

That is too funny! We all do something like that!

LesleyG said...

Teehee sooooooo funny! :)

Linby said...

ha ha ha - well who knew ducks had wheels??????

Donna said...

Will you make another card with the wheels on the ducks this time, I wonder?
We've all done it! X

Darnell said...

Oh, too funny, Di! I honestly thought you were being a bit too picky and I didn't think the eyes were that odd! Shows what I know!! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

Oh my gosh, this is too funny. I only feel that the big duck has zombie looking eyes but even then it isn't that bad.
