You make me SMILE all over my face

I'm so proud of myself for waiting till today to post this I was so tempted to do another post last night lol. Ha so I can resist temptation after all - though maybe not all temptations unless you don't count chocolate lol.

I was on a bit of a roll with my challenges last night, they've been great fun and got me doing different things, like actually getting one of my new stamps out of the wrapper rather than just admiring it lol.

I'd like to enter this card in the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 115 this was to use the sketch from their site along with a Penny Black image, I actually stuck to the sketch almost exactly lol, just changed the ribbons so they only went over the pink paper. I love this duck stamp, so cute, one of the slapstick ones and I think I must have got it in the sale cos I've seen it elsewhere for more than double what I paid :) always makes you feel better knowing you got a bargain. It was only when I went to type up the supplies that I noticed that the papers (some of my absolute favourites) are from a collection called 'Ducks in a Row' - how spooky given the image I chose lol.

I would also like to enter this card in the challenge on Alphabet Challenge Blog this week is Q for Quotes, I'd bought this set of stamps by Inkadinkadoo probably atleast a month ago, and thought it was about time they saw ink lol. I LOVE this saying, the bottom of the stamp says it was by Ian Hobson, age 5, unfortunately I couldn't squish it in to include it. But what a cute saying. And think it goes well with the image of the two ducks hugging away lol. And before I waffle on too much longer.... here is the card :) 

And now for a close up lol

Supplies: (OK deep breath, lots to get through lol) 'Loving and Hugging' Stamp by Penny Black, 'Kids' Quotes' Stamp by Inkadinkado, 'Ducks in a Row' Papers by October Afternoon, Flowers by Petaloo, Buttons by Ladybug Crafts Ink, 'Cupcake Posies' shaped Buttons by Doodlebug, Double Dot Ribbon by Bo Bunny
Extras: White Card, Pink and Turquoise Ink Pads, Copics and Promarkers

This is the first time I've entered either of these challenges so wish me luck :)

OK well I have a load of application form related stuff to get read through tonight so I'll have to leave this as a quick post as I had best get on. Hope you like the card, I love it, even if I do say so myself XOX
