What Gets You Quacking?

Hi everyone! I just haven't had a lot of time to craft this week and it's driving me nuts because there are so many fun images at Squigglefly that I want to color! And to top that off there are even more images coming tomorrow! Aargh! What's a girl to do?  Well, this girl is going to show you THREE CARDS today since they are still new in the store.

First up is this card I made a couple of days ago with the oh so cute Coffee Duck by Monica Estill.

I used Copic markers to color and then lightly flocked the duck. I thought the sparseness of the flocking made him look disheveled and sleepy which is what I was going for - I mean why else would the duck need coffee? The word "coffee" is part of the image, but I added the sentiment myself.  Now that I have uploaded the photo I see that I neglected to draw in the apostrophe.  The font I used didn't have punctuation marks, and I meant to draw that in before I took the picture.

Monica has such an imagination! I love the things she dreams up to draw! One of my favorites (and one I was going to use for this week's Button Challenge if I ever get time to finish it!) is Tandem Ladybugs.   But not to worry because Pat Martin had the same idea as me and she beat me to it, so go take a look at the darling card she made with the ladybugs HERE.   If that doesn't make  you want to run out and buy the image I don't know what will!

Next up is a valentine using another of Lynne Stansbery's Punny Valentine's set.

This one is from Set Six which comes with 11 images and sentiments!  What a value this is because you can use these images for more than Valentine's Day!

Ready for another one?  This one comes from My Punny Valentine Set Four, another great value with 9 images and sentiments.  

Well hopefully I'll get lots of cards made this weekend with the new images!  Enjoy your Friday, and thanks for looking!
