Duck Pond

This is my blog post at the


Happy Thursday, I hope you are all having a great week so far!!
Today is my day to share my project using  dies from the
Dies R Us online store!

I have to admit, this card is not my usual, as I seem to struggle
with "manly" cards.
But, being it is close to Father's Day, and also being I have "needs"
for "manly" cards time to time,
I thought I would "bite the bullet" and get a little bit creative!



I started by using my very neglected Gelatos and created my
own water color background.
A perfect background for the Die-Namics Duck Pond to "float" on! 
I just love this die, it was cut from a recycled packaging material
that the TH Distress stencils arrive on!
I think it gives the ducks a bit of variation of color!

I kept the card simple to mail, by just adding Memory Box Bamboo leaves.
The exact one I used is not in stock anymore, but you can use
Memory Box Tall Bamboo just as easy or try the "Search'
by typing in the word "bamboo" and see all the choices!!

This is fabulous! Wow! What a great die! I see something different every time I browse there. Just received an order yesterday and already have another wish list going. So hard to narrow down my choices. This is so cool!
