Splish Splash



The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is Splish Splash!  I happened to be up in the wee hours when the challenge was first posted.  The minute I saw the post...I knew which stamp set I wanted to use.  The duck is from a retired Close To My Heart stamp set, Makin Waves.  I have always loved the images in this stamp set....but sadly they had never seen ink.  Regardless of never seeing ink, they had earned themselves a spot in the keep pile!  Around 2am, I managed to get my image colored, mostly to my liking.  At this point, I am thinking I should really get to bed, so I can manage to get up in a few hours to go to the office.  Something about that day job that really cuts into my crafting time.  My little card was yet to be finished......a few hours later, I grab a couple of supplies and head to the office.  (Looking back, I needed more than a couple of supplies!)  Let me tell you, this card was finished old school!  We are talking dull office scissors and a ruler!  Do you think I remembered to put scissors or a paper trimmer in my box???  Fortunately I remembered the adhesive, or I would have had to assemble with tape!  I missed out on the square challenge last week, so I was determined to get my entry in for this weeks challenge.  Getting the card completed just turned out to be a little more challenging than I anticipated!

So once, I had the card completed, you would think the hard part was over!  Wrong, on so many accounts!  For starters, ever tried to take a decent pic of a white card under office lighting, with an old office camera? No lightbox, no backgrounds.  I am still determined though.  A little copy paper placed around the card blocked out most of the distractions.  No photo editing at the office either...thank goodness for picmonkey!  I hope you enjoy the cute little duck, it turned out to be quite a feat to get him here!

Hi Allisa! I see you are a fellow CTMH consultant!! What's even more interesting is that we have both been consultants for around the same amount of time! Your card is just adorable! I don't remember that cute little duck, so I must not have that set! Glad I found your blog :)
Happy Stamping!
