Quack! Quack!!!

Okay, this is a TEST! It's NOT a test of the Emergency Broadcast System (I hated those interruptions when I was listening to my favorite music on the radio as a teenager!) It's NOT an Algebra test, or English test, or Geography test. It's NOT a medical test either.

It IS a test to see how well you notice details. LOL!

See this card...

Is it the same card you saw on my blog yesterday for the Twisted Tuesday Challenge?

The correct answer is NO!

It IS the same duck (colored the same way)... and the same papers, and the same sentiment. But the card is completely different.

Okay, maybe I should explain. Barb - you know Barb... she's the lady I tease so much here in my blog. She's really very nice (cough! Sputter!!!) But I digress... so, on with my explanation.

Barb opened an Unidentified Image Card Swap on SCS a couple of months ago. I joined! (Of course!) Barb sent the participants all the same image with the instructions to make cards with those images and send them back to her. Fortunately she sent 6 images and we only need to make 4 cards... because I made the card you saw on my blog yesterday and truthfully, I didn't like it at all! The springy Wanna-Be Easel card bugged me!!! Soooooooooooo I thought to myself, 'Self, you can't send this to Barb. It's horrible!' Therefore, I made the card you see on my blog today and I liked it, so I made 3 others to send with it to Barb.

Oh, and since confession is good for the soul....... I must confess and apologize publicly to Barb (cough! Sputter!!!) I lost my first set of 6 images that she sent me - caused a bit of a stir since the day I discovered that and told her I had lost them was April Fool's Day and no one believed me. But yep! I lost them. Still haven't found them. So Barb graciously sent me a second set of the images so I would't be eliminated. Didn't I say earlier, Barb is a nice lady... and a good friend!

THANK YOU, Barb!!!

Hey Jeanette - you're right - Two different cards! BUT love both of them! Such a cute, cute image. Don't know which I like better as they're both so cute.

Barb said...

OK--first, I need to pick my jaw up from the floor! ;-). Then, I need to thank you--cough, sputter--for the kind words.............. And, then I need to deal with Melina!

Seriously--I love both of your cards and I think no matter what you did with this image, your card would rock! Great Job--can't wait see this cutie in my mailbox later this week!

Hugs--my FRIEND!
