Love You . . . . . . . arrrrrrrrrrrh

Good morning my little duckadees. Hope all is well in your part of the world. I'm trying a new thing on my photos in case you thought I had ripped all of the edges LOL !!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about Mr Duck's anniversary card. I think he felt a bit chuffed too that everyone who commented liked it. Thanks for thinking that my handwriting isn't too bad either.

Ita, so sorry you have to endure an op. Hope that all will be well with you soon. To answer Lydia, Kate and Val, yes Mr Duck did get me a very lovely card. He tried to pretend that he had made it himself by spouting technical terms he has heard on C & C, like "triple embossing" but I wasn't fooled. Also, he keeps every single card or letter/note I have ever sent him, in a box.  His choice, not my prompting. How lovely is that?

Now, today's card was just a quick and easy card I pictured in my head and thought I would try. Apologies that it is verging on the Valentine as that's worse than Christmas LOL!!! Wait until the weekend's Easter card hahaha!
The base of the card is a piece of white hammered card (sorry, it was an offcut and I forgot to measure). 
I cut the hearts, innys and outys, using the two smallest dies from a Sissix die set, out of fuchsia pink card and a piece of pink spotty card (think that was off a packet of something so I hope I did good Patricia).
I stuck the larger hearts alternately to the card.Then I Hougied down the middle of the small hearts and glued them in the centres of their opposite colour, lifting the sides for dimension.
The ribbon holes were done with a Tonic ribbon punch and pink organza ribbon threaded through. A two finger bow added to the end.
I then re-thought how to do the sentiment and punched tiny hearts using a Hobbycraft punch and hand wrote the letters.They are stuck on with silicon glue.
And finally, a picture of the beautiful card that Mr Duck gave me for our anniversary. He has definitely upped the anti since I started making cards but I do feel sorry for him having to buy me cards when I make them.


Hope that you have a splendid day. I shall be meeting  a group of good friends for lunch, which is always a good laugh so I hope that whatever you are up to, it makes you smile.

TTFN

  1. Lovely card great photo I am sure someone will be having a go at that background! Tell Mr D he has great taste in cards and I wish I could find a man that treasured what I gave him! Sigh! Has he an older brother?:) Perhaps father! LOL!

  9. Hi Ang,
    beautiful card. Love the colours and design. What a fab idea.
    Superb bow.
    Didn't Mr Duck do well with his lovely choice of card.
    My hubby has the same trouble with buying me cards, he says they never come up to the standards of mine, but he doesn't do a bad job though. I have really had some very beautiful ones.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  17. Good morning Ang, you did good! You did very good!
    I love this beautiful card, great not just for a Valentine, simple card to send to someone you care about.
    Need to get John to whisper in Mr Ducks ear ... John raids my "card" box when I am out to get a card to give me. Talk about "cheapskate" ... He says that way he knows I will like it!!!
    Have a fantastic weekend
    Hugs
