Make Way for Ducklings!

ETA:  This card also seems appropriate to share today, April 16, the day after the bombings at the marathon.  I love Boston, and always will.  I even left for 5 years, and purposely came back.  This is one of the cards I have made that I am the proudest of, because aside from all the fun techniques I used to make it, it also has a local sensibility to it.

Edited again to add that I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Travel/Cityscape challenge.

Just popping in one last time today to share this card I made today for a baby shower I'm going to tomorrow.  It's for a fellow Bostonian, so I wanted to do something kind of local, and I thought of the beloved children's book "Make Way for Ducklings."  (On the card, there are only 2 ducklings, because she is having twins.)

This card also gave me the opportunity to use that lovely building stamp I got from StudioMo on Etsy.  (I love buying stamps on Etsy, they're so much more unique!)

I love the way this came out, though it did take me all day to finish!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Aww! Cute card, Gabi! I'm so glad you linked your blog up to the Moxie Fab World Blogroll. It will be great to stop by and say "hello" from time to time! :)

  2. I LOVE this! <3
    My son works for the Peabody Hotel. They are known for their ducks that live there. Everyday the Duckmaster rolls out a red carpet and the ducks march down to the hotel lobby to swim in the fountain there.
    Your card reminds me of those ducks. Too cute! And I love that stamp. I'm going to have to check out that Etsy shop! :)

  3. Fabulous card Gabi, I love those cute little ducks and the way you've stamped the rows of buildings in different colours.
    Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp
