About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Just Ducky

Another quick card to enter into 2 challenges:
1. Die Cuttin Divas:

2. CASology:

Here is my interpretation of the combined challenges:
The base is a simple white cardstock base. The next two layers are shimmer paper from DCWV. The blue die cut waves were cut from the Cricut Cartridge Paper Dolls for Everyday and were inked in Stampin' Up Ballet Blue ink. The blue paper is from recollections. The hexagon wave paper came from my scrap box and the hexagon was hand cut.  The ducky was a free stamp from Bugaboo Digi Stamps adhered with foam tape, and colored with oil pencils. The yellow hexagons in the corners are also something I pulled out of my scrap box. It was part of a border I cut from the Theresa Collins Basics cartridge. The sentiment was hand printed on the same paper as the die cut waves and inked with the same ink.
Kinda cute don't' you think?
Have a great day!
