HI Y'all....my baby, will be 34 next month and I bought the Cricut Lite Wildlife cart, just to make him this card ! lol What was I thinking??????? This card was a labor of love and I hope he can see that!! John Allen has traveled all over the southeast to shoot a duck ....I don't get it, but he loves to go duck hunting , so that was my inspiration for this card. We have Mallards at the lake and they are always swimming so close together, so I had these doing the same. (Why is the Male bird,always the prettiest??) The flying birds are actually geese in the handbook, but guess what...now they are Mallards. I looked at MANY photos of mallards and tried my best to make them look realistic( cough..cough) This was the best I could do on such a small scale.I used Camp Out for the trees, Create a Critter for the pond and Heritage for SON. It was actually Sons and I just cut off the s, in case you go looking for it. Lots of inking, popping and a little embossing.I used Tim Holtz distressed embossing powder on the lettering, added some hemp and vintage buttons and was SOO glad this one was made.Oh yea, added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to give it that early morning feel! lol Thanks so much for stopping by...have a safe
weekend !!!

I just love your cards, Joy! And I think your mallards turned out very well. I remember we had some, when I was a kid, and many would eat out of your hand. (They weren't true mallards, they were mixed with tame ducks, but they looked like the wild ones!)

Fantastic card, he should love it. After all it cost $39 to make the card!!!! I've bought so many cartridges for one cut, that's why I bought SpongeBob! Haven't used it since I made the card.....will be cutting out everything on it this winter (it's one of my goals!) so I can say I really used the cartridges.
