Isn't she adorable!!! I absolutely adore Sarah Kay. I must have them all!!!!! Actually, this one is my daughter's. Last time I visited her we traded images. This reminds me of when I was growing up on the farm in southwestern Missouri. We had baby chicks every summer. And now, behind our Florida home, we have a retention pond. It has so much water fowl that is so much fun to watch! Well, we currently have ducklings. Mama duck started out with 13, but she's down to 9 as of this morning... darn turtles! There must be 25-30 turtles in that pond as well, and they love baby ducks! But they are growing quickly (the ducklings), so maybe most will survive. But that's what this image reminds me of.
This is for MvsS challenge to make a mother's day card. My mom has been gone for years, but I'm going to give it to my mom-in-law. She loves watching the water fowl, and she was raised on a farm in Iowa. I colored the image with my Copics and sponged it with chalk. In the upper left corner I put a little sunshine :). Using last Friday's sketch challenge, I have three layers, including the image. The image was too large to actually layer, so I cut it with Nestabilities rectangle, embossed it, and cut the second layer with a smaller scallop rectangle. The paper is Basic Grey (can you tell I like BG paper?). The flowers are Prima and the pink rhinestones are from Kaiser (I also love Kaiser pearls and rhinestones... I want them ALL!!!). I really think it turned out really cute, but it could just be the image that I'm in love with ;)
