De-duck-tible.......PPA106


Just can't get enough of that rubber ducky from Easy Events! This sheet of DSP from Berry Blossoms had the look of bathroom tile to me so it was the perfect background for my trio of ducks.  Following PPA's recipe challenge I used 1 DSP, 1 punch (scalloped edge) and 1 sentiment (from Pennant Parade).  The bubbles?  A flower stamp from Raining Flowers.  And I love the Calypso Coral with Wisteria Wonder! 

Here's another quacker strutting his stuff:



It's one of the famous ducks that live in the glorious fountain at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis.  While visiting Tennessee, my daughter and I watched the morning parade of ducks from their Penthouse Suite, down the elevator, across the red carpet and into the fountain.  We brought home some great duck themed gifts including a bib for my niece's little guy that says: "I'm de-duck-tible!"

Linda this card is adorable! OMG... you are so clever! The tiles...fabulous but those bubbles... How clever is that! Just adorable.
PS: My daughter met her husband while he was a chef at the Peabody in Fl. I've seen those ducks many times and everytime I 'quack' up at their march to the fountain. Hugs.

You are too clever! Who woulda thought that flower could also be bubbles! Of course I'll never see it as a flower again. Great job!

So adorable! Such a cute baby card & it can be used for boys or girls. Love the coral & wisteria with the pop of yellow. And the bubbles are just perfect. Think the ducks would be proud.

Great use of the ducks. Love the bubbles and "tile" look, too.

Hugs, M

I LOVE when stampers can find many uses for stamps, such as using this flower stamp as bubbles. Yay!

Patti MacLeith said...

The baby photo totally outdoes your card, sorry! But I do adore the ducks!!

Linda, I love that you put a pennant above the heads of two of the ducks! Perfection... but then... so is the real thing in your photograph! I know nothing about the ducks at the Peabody, now I need to go google it!

Love your card Linda. I agree with you about the DP looking like bathroom tile. It's so perfect for your card. My brother and my son both live in TN. I enjoyed looking at the photo of the duck that you took. It came out great! And who is that gorgeous little baby! What a little doll.
