Happy Birthday Mr Duck. . . . . . . . . .xxx


Good morning my little paddlers. Hope all is good in your bit of the pond and that your extremities are not frostbitten.
Busy few days for moi. Mince pies had to be made (72 so far), presents bought for Mr Duck (Birthday and Christmas, bad timing by the parents I say), food shop Plus (call it this as its a normal shop Plus the last of the non perishables for Christmas), last of the Christmas card making, charity shop and of course, the four letter word, work.
Should find out at the weekend if they are keeping me on so fingers crossed. I've got another couple of stone to lose so it would be nice to get paid to do it hahaha!
I have persuaded Mr D to try one of those 3 bird roasts this year. He has been resisting as he's a traditional Turkey guy. He has tried using the cannibalism excuse (one of the meats is duck!) but resistance was futile. . . . . . . .same when I see a SB die I want.
Nigella will be coming out on Friday. No this isn't another scoop revelation from the trial. I mean my Christmas cake, a Nigella recipe hence the nickname, will be coming out of the freezer where she has resided since last year. She will be fed a little more brandy (probably needs it at the moment, poor love) before topping with the white stuff. . . . . . . icing in this Nigella's case.

Anyhoo, this won't get the lady a baby as my darling late Mum used to say (think its some Malaysian saying) so I'd better get on with the card.
This is Mr Duck's birthday card. He actually asked that I put it on the blog bless him.
Please excuse my colouring on Wellington as I'm not a colourist by any stretch of the imagination.



Ingredients 
A3 white card
Navy and red PMD card
SB Fancy Lattice
SB Bracket Borders
SB Decorative Labels 28 
SB Decorative Labels One
Docrafts Wellington Stamp Pack (bargain £2.50 instead of £9.99)
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Coloured Pencils
Red pigment ink
Red organza ribbon
Red satin ribbon.
Hougie Board.
Foam pads and tape.

Throw it all together with a spoon of kisses and a pinch of love.

I've done a list rather than one of my lengthy explanations as you are all clued up folk who can see how its put together.


Righty ho, at work again today and tomorrow so see you in a couple of days. The big 100 posts at the pond is almost here too. . . . . . . . and they said it wouldn't last (or rather they hoped it wouldn't lol !)

  3. Hi Ang, The colouring looks good to me and I love the cute bear image. What a busy life you lead, just think of the sitting down after your 3 bird roast with a box of chocs and a drink of your choice. - always the best part of Christmas.
    So hope it's good news on the job front. Will keep my fingers and arthritic toes crossed for you.
    Love Val x

  6. Hi Ang, and happy belated birthday to Mr Duck. We might have been twins as it is mine today [!]. Had a good visit home then back to the food bank doing parcels this week but a day off today and friends are coming to lunch - think packing food parcels and wrapping gifts for the children is easier mind you!! back to the warehouse for a couple of days then home again - and you think your life is hectic!! Anyway it is a lovely card you made for Mr Duck and I hope you both have a relaxing Christmas and New Year and I will be back for a paddle in a couple of weeks. Best wishes Jackie

  9. No wonder he was proud of his birthday card Ang! I will be doing my final shop very very early on Staurday morning and then that's it! Finito! If anything forgotten then that's tough. Actually the village shop (well, the next village's shop - we don't have one) is actually very good, if a bit expensive. Hugs Christine xx
