Lucky Ducks

I’m playing along with a sketch challenge at Basic Grey today.  This layout uses their Jovial line. Everything is BG except my son’s name (Jenny B stickers), his age is cut from a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die, and the date is on a Hambly overlay.  This was almost ten years ago and I still remember how thrilled he was to see that present on Christmas morning.  And how LOUD it was… all those ducks swam around the pond quacking nonstop while he ‘fished’ for them.  Time flies!


Here’s the sketch:


And a few close-ups:



All the presents are from one of the Jovial papers. I cut them out and popped some on foam tape and left the rest flat.  Everything is edged in black soot distress ink.

I’m also putting this in today at Paper Issues for their Holiday Madness theme and at Anything Goes where the current theme is Anything but a Card.

Thanks so much for taking the time to pop by.  Have a great day!


Your comments are very much appreciated!


  1. Hah! You want to talk about controversy? Tila Tequila was born in Singapore. Her family quickly emigrated to a few places then eventually ended up moving to a small town in Texas. The fact that she is ending up with a ha ha ha tape is no surprise to me. That internet marketer is crazy, but you gotta love her. She keeps the attention coming.
