Duckies on Parade.....

Hello everyone: I've been kind of busy this past couple of days with my DH (dear hubby) on brake till next Saturday, plus I'm the taxi service for my grandchildren and now, I'm helping my beautiful almost 19 year old granddaughter Vanessa, shop and prepare some Vegetarian meals. I don't think I could become a total Vegetarian but let me tell you, this salads, soups, main dishes, desserts are amazing and incredibly healthy and easy to make, the ingredients are easy to find so, since I also love my veggies, I've been preparing enough for us too.  Ok, but I digress.....I have a really cute card to share with you that I will link to the LiveLoveCards March Challenge "Cards for Kids" plus a few other challenges, at the end of this post.

This super sweet image is from Lili of the Valley but it's sadly discontinued.  I stamped it onto a panel of Strathmore mixed media paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with my Stampin' Up! markers and an aqua painter, I sponged a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink for the sky.
The little flowers on the corner are stamped and then punched with the Petite Petals stamp set and coordinating punch from Stampin' Up!, the little banner the ducky is holding was stamped with the Teeny Tiny Wishes and the leave on my flowers were punched with the Bird Builder Punch. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and Daffodil are from old Flourishes Easter sets.

I'm entering the following challenges.
LiveLoveCards March Challenge "Cards for Kids"
The Crazy Challenge #243 "We Love Animals"
Come and Get It Challenges "Cards for Kids"
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #143 "Pastel Colors"
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #111 "Anything Goes"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
