Isn't she lovely! I'll have to do some research to see when to expect the arrival of the duckings.
Did I mention there are 9 eggs?
On to the swans. Okay...they're quilled swans...
As much as I love white on white cards, which I tried, but the swans were totally lost on them.
I chose these awesome colours - Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, and Island Indigo. Whisper White rounds out the base colours.
You'll notice the swans don't look exactly alike and that's because when I quill, I let the paper direct me. When I had finished the quilling I took a look at each of the swans, 50 by the way, and they were each unique differently. Dare I say they had their own personalities!!
To complete the cards, I used:
Square lattice and Perfect Polka Dot Embossing folders
Frame, Oval Scallop Bigz Die
Labels Collection Framelits
Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals
The Sheep Story
I woke early one morning and brrrr it was cold in my room, so I stumbled over to my open window, pushed aside the curtain in order to close the window, and I spot something in my yard. It wasn't quite light out and although I have bionic eyes (thanks to laser eye surgery), I wasn't clearly focusing. Anyway, to my amazement there was a sheep in my yard. Um...so what's a sheep doing in my backyard? I do live in the city! Wiping the sleepy-dirt out of my eyes, I'm now really straining to see this sheep and I'm so confuzzled (yes, that's a work in my dictionary)....then...
...it's my rain water barrel. We drained it before winter, leaving it lighter than usual and at the mercy of a big 'ol wind storm. So there it was, blown from it's perch close to my house, and now on it's side in my backyard...looking like a 'sheep'...really. I love that story!! LOL
