Emergency Birthday!

Happy Friday,

Now Today's card is made especially for a good friend who had a birthday yesterday!  Now I know I am the worst at remembering birthdays, anniversaries etc and rely on my mum to remind me however I am sure I didn't know it was Mrs Ducks Birthday yesterday.

So a card for Mrs D, well it had to be bright and contain the striplet, it had to say something right but it also had to be my style.  Hopefully this fits the bill! pun intended!! lol

 A quick pots as written late on Wednesday night so hopefully it is self explanatory!

Happy Belated Birthday Mrs D,



  1. I'll bet Mrs D loved this card. I might have to give in to temptation & buy the striplet die this weekend as i'm going to the Great British craft festival at Bolton.


  2. Such a lovely card for Mrs D and i just bet she is doubled up Quacking at the Pun , i love how you have used the die and sentiment is just lovely.

  3. Hi John. Beautiful CAS card : ) I love the deep blue and cream combo, very elegant. The striplet is perfect for this type of card isn't it. I'm sure Mrs Duck loved it. Take care.

  4. A super card John and just right for Mrs Duck. May I ask where you got the stamp from [and please don't say it was one of your ebay bargains and you don't know] the words are so right. best wishes Jackie

  5. Hola John
    Mrs Duck did indeed love it by email last night. As I said, the way you have split the die cut is inspired and I too love the sentiment.
    I didn't advertise the big day so don't fret.
    Have a great day and thanks for the dedication of this super card.
