OCL Blog Hop - The Pond

Hi there OCL friends!  I'm thrilled to be showing you one more card on this BLOG HOP to celebrate our Brand New Release of 11 new STAMP SETS!!!

The card I made uses the stamp set called The Pond.  This set is STINKIN' ADORABLE!  I am in LOVE with it!  There are so many uses for this set.  Baby cards, "hello" cards, scrapping.  Just think of making a page of you and your child, grandchild, niece, or nephew going to visit a pond!



So here you have it.  I wanted to make something simple, as I have been sick lately.  It wasn't coming together at first - but then I had played around with my card and now I really like it!



One depressing fact - I can't find my Lemon Drop Sparkly Fluff!!!  DEVASTATING!  Say it isn't SO!  I was going to fluffify (yes - my new word) the duck.  Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be.  So instead I cut out the front wing and popped it up.  Now I am happy.  :)

And here is the stamp set in full:
