You quack me up

This week's challenge over at Less Is More is 'Humour' so out came the 'humorous' stamps but lots of them needed a fair bit of colouring and time just wasn't on my side so I opted for one of my very favourite Penny Black stamps, plus one of their sentiments:
I've never used these two stamps together before, sigh - why ever not 'cos they do look as if they've just shared a good joke. I usually use 'You'll always be my friend, because you know too much' - which is another great favourite of mine but Chrissie had already used that one for one of her DT cards. Odd though, Len just doesn't 'get' that one - but maybe it's a girl thing to share :)

I used:

- white DL card stock

- Penny Black 'Loving and Hugging' stamp, stamped using Memento 'Gray Flannel' with just a tickle of Pro Markers

- a snippet of lovely cheerful yellow backing card, which my colour swatch tells me is SU's 'Daffodil Delight'

- sentiment is also Penny Black called ''...Quack me up!', stamped with 'Gray Flannel' again

- then the bottom right corners were rounded with Fiskars 'Corner Rounder' scissors

Super fast card, made just before heading off for a hair chop yesterday. I know, my hairdresser has a little independent salon and stunned me when she said she'd be open on Bank Holiday Monday - which suited me down to the ground.

Of course, if the 'chop' didn't go to plan I could be sitting here today with a brown paper sack over my head. And I sure won't be saying 'You quack me up'! I might be quacking in indignation though :)



  1. Glad no paper bag on head was featured in your post! Mine occasionally works on the Long Weekend Mondays as well! Small world!

    I think your card is so cute and would love it with either sentiment. Anyone of the femal persusion would get the other sentiment...that's for sure! teehee

    I just accidentally deleted your comment on my Rudolph card. Sorry about that! But maybe I should delete the whole thing cuz I just realized that I broke the rules!!! I linked to 8 hallenges...whoops!!!
    Got a little carried away. i posted 2 cards back to back and the other was carefully only linked to 4...Ah well...

  2. A perfect pairing! I'll bet you use this sentiment and ducks together again and again!

  3. Your ducks quack me up....tell Len he's not alone. I ran the sentiment past my husband and I got a "lights on nobody is home" look....hmmmm it must be a girl thing. Glad your hair day turned out well. Have a super holiday....

  4. Nothing beats a happy hair day. Your little ducks are positively delightful. You're setting me a bad example...you know I love these ducks! Perfect sentiment to go with the image, and I think either sentiment would be great with these little guys. TFS

  5. Love this card, great stamping and they do work so well together. xx Flora

  13. Love it! Quackers!
    I should imagine you may need a plastic bag rather than paper, but I am sure it is fine! Don't use plastic bag though unless you cut holes in it....which would render it useless ey!
    Shut Up Sam!

  15. My gosh this is just adorable.

    Regards diane
