Carolling Duck!

If you're looking for WOYWW 134 of 28th December then please go here 'cos Dumbo put the wrong link in her first attempt!!

Firstly, it's just before 7am here - the day after WOYWW. So many lovely people left get well wishes yesterday, I'm quietly shaken. And the great news is that I slept for eight hours last night without stirring, or honking like a goose! I can't explain how much better I feel for that this morning - oh my, fingers crossed!! :)

This card uses another pre-loved stamp that I bought a while ago- I need to go through my own stamps for a little sort out sometime, but being a hoarder doesn't help!

I did love using this image, it made me 'smile all the while':

I used:

- Penny Black 'Carolling Duck' stamped with Memento Black, coloured with Pro Markers and a sprinkling of Glamour Dust on the furry bits

- green backing card from the never-decreasing snippets stash folder

- papers from Hot Off The Press 'Forever Christmas Cards' paper stack

- sentiment by Funstamps 'Small Merry Christmas' - stamped using Dewdrops Brilliance 'Pearlescent Poppy' ink pad

- ribbon from stash

- Josy Rose nail heads

As I used some snippets, I'm entering this into Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge - Week 50 . The playground gates close tomorrow so I've just managed to scamper in!
