I'm Quackin' Up! - 3 Cards Made

Howdy folks! Hope everyone is well. Woke up this morning to the sun splitting the sky. It has been a gorgeous day here, nice & bright and a bit windy (we'll put that down to Lesley (aka Pinkles Dreams) who is still here at my bit - pmsl...). I got some good news yesterday about the leak in the roof, it just needs a small repair in the felt and some tiles relined and that's it done.
We have been having a craftathon but somehow I am losing. lol. I have managed three cards, two of which I have used my Penny Black duck stamps which I have had for ages & ages and been dieing to use.

These 2 little ducks I have entered into Charisma Cardz No.7 Challenge which is hugs 'n' Cuddles, ah bless. The backing papers are from DCVW Spring Stash which I had forgot I had and went foraging in the cupboard for. lol.
I used my other ducky stamp for the Cute Card Thursday challenge which the theme was 'Spring' and the Saturday Penny Black challenge which was 'Get Well Soon'.
I used DCVW backing paper from the Spring Collection and the butterflies are from my stash. While making this card my vocal chords got an airing (much to Lesley's and Barry's annoyance) as 'love is in the air' was replaced by the wording on the card. Woo-oo-oo-oo. lol.
Finally this Mother's day card is entered into the Daring Cardmakers challenge - to have a fish or a frog. Well, since I'm a little frog daft I can't miss this one but looking though all my gear I was surprised to find very little froggies there (note for craft fair next week..froggie
YES - I do have other backing papers other than DCVW, but, NO, on this occasion I chose not to use (another note... must try other Princess Tilda is holding Prince Charming in her hands just about to place a big smacker of a kiss on him. Flowers & ribbon from stash.
Oh well, better that making the tea, not one of strong points. lol.
