Caroling Duck!

Hi there blog friends.

I have been absent for a few days with sore throat and now a cold so haven't felt like crafting :(

However I have had a fabulous weekend - yesterday I went to Exeter WestPoint craft show which was fabulous! Jenny Mayes from Hobby Art was there. I first saw Jenny on Create and Craft along time ago and then I saw her at Japonica craft shop in Exmouth. Her stamps are fabulous and she is so enthusiastic, talented and very helpful. So I bought some of her new stamp sets which I'm sure you will see shortly.
 Inkylicious was also there so I bought some more of those stamps and will have another go at using their ink dusters, so watch this space!
It is brilliant for inspiration going to a craft show but also frustrating when they make it look so easy!

Today I went out for lunch with hubby and youngest son for a triple celebration - mine and hubbies birthdays are in January and we also celebrated my youngest son getting his English language exam results - A STAR!!!!!   Super proud of him and now he doesn't have to resit that exam in the future as you can't get any higher than that!

On to today's share:


Items used:
Penny Black 'Caroling Duck!'
Kaisercraft Christmas papers
Pink Petticoat sentiment
Wink of Stella pen
Glossy Accents
Ribbon, gems and button from stash

So I will end my waffle and wish you a fab evening, thanks for stopping by TTFN.

  1. I know what you mean with the people at the shows making it look so easy! Sweet little duck card and I like the little "fa la la" greeting to go with it.
