Have a Ducky Day

I am honored to be one of the SCS Virtual Stamp Night hostesses. The overall theme of this VSN is Parks and Recreation. The challenges have been fantastic - oh so fun!

Our son Brock was the inspiration for my challenge. Brock LOVES going to the park to feed the ducks. He and his dad go almost every single day. We have a nice park - Leo French Park - that has a walking trail complete with a covered bridge. Brock's ducks (which include various kinds of ducks and geese) know him and often when come waddling over as soon as he gets out of the car, since they know he'll have something to feed them. 

The thing that always amazes me is how Brock isn't bothered when the ducks come up and surround him, quack, quack, quacking away. Brock is terrified of dogs and not too eager to get close to cats either, but his ducks don't bother him one bit.

Anyway, back to my challenge... for my VSN Parks and Recreation theme, I simply asked the participants to include at least one duck on their cards.

I have a lot of duck stamps to choose from (I wonder why???). I ended up using the La La Land You Lucky Duck stamp set for my sample card.

It took 30 minutes to make my simple card.

During the hour that my challenge was live, I made another duck card, too. I used the Your Next Stamp Quackers stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

These are adorable! I'm glad Brock enjoys their company. I love how you colored and arranged your card. I love simple. Congrats on being a hostess. I usually participate in VSN, but this year my mom is keeping me busy. Her dementia is really setting in and I am afraid to leave her alone for too long. Anyway, I love your card. TFS!
