my burned duck!

hi there,
DAG-GONE IT...you know when your card is going great...but it still needs something...and then you start looking at different "things".....well thats what I did and messed up!!! had been trying punched corners, flowers, pearls, buttons....naaaaaaaaah - none of them were working for that upper corner....and I had two things left - but both were stick-ons.....one was a round yellow sun face and the other one......wellllllll.......it's now stuck on the card!!!  wasn't thinkin it was THAT sticky!!! don't like it....but there's no getting it off....
so there ya go....oh well....it is what it is, right!  LOL

loved this image because this is exactly what happens to me if I'm not lotioned up with #53 sunscreen applied two inches thick!!!

this is going into Isabella's challenge. The winner will receive a $6 gift certificate to Isabella's.

colored with Copics, sentiment is from me, stash sky dp, cardstock from SU and a cute litte starfish and an "ugly" sun both from KC & Co.

sure hope to make it to the beach this year and thanks to all for the book suggestions!! going tomorrow (finally) and pick out one....

have a blessed day,

What a great image Linda!!! Love how you used it on your card too~ I have a folder full of those ..... slightly off embellies hehe can't bring myself to chuck them perhaps we should have a challenge to see who has the worst!!!!

OMG, what a fantastic image.... such fun card...

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

Terrific job, Linda! I had to laugh too. And I don't think the sun is ugly at all - the color matches perfectly with the towel and sun hat. Did you color them to match the sun? Anyway, I love how you colored the entire scene. Great clouds too!

Anne said...

Linda this is stunning, and the sun matches the towel perfectly for colour, works a treat!

Jennifer Scull said...

oh you give me such a giggle sometimes! :) I think it looks wonderful as always!
I am in the process of just pitching those things I know I will never ever use. or donating them to my library for their scrapping nights. that gives me more room for pretty pink Primas! giggles!

Hi Linda,
I like this card. The image is fantastic. I'm not too sure about the sun but I wouldn't say it spoils the card - I think it's fine.
We all have drawers ful of stash we might never use - it's what happens when you keep all your magazine freebies.
Hugs,

I think this card is just ducky! This works but I do agree that it is hard to find the perfect sun for a scheme. Gotta love those stashes!
