Magnolia Ducky Duck and Sally the Monkey Cards

Happy weekend everyone. Well, it's not so happy for me, because my husband and I attended our friend's funeral yesterday. We haven't attended one since my dad's funeral back in December. Since yesterday is past, I think we should all wipe our tears and start fresh again. Let's not talk about sadness, but look forward for the bright days. Today I have a couple cards to share with you. Sometimes I wish I have an extra pair of hands with all my new stamps, lol. There are more projects coming up soon with the new collections. Now, I am posting the two cards using a couple animal stamps from the new Princes and Princesses Collections that you can purchase from Magnolia-licious. Since we are going to start fresh, I used some bright colors on them.

Here are the finished cards using the Ducky Duck and Sally The Monkey stamps.


The first card is a friendship card using the Ducky Duck image. Because this is such a large stamp, so I wanted to make this little cutie as the focus on this card. As you notice I didn't put a lot of details on the card. He is colored with Copic Markers.

Here is my second card. If you look closer, I added a sheet of vellum on the DP. Because this image is holder a blank piece of paper, I just wanted to use this Magnolia Sentiment on this card to match the blank piece of paper Sally is holding.

OMGosh Cabio, these two cards are screamin' cute! This Ducky Duck is just so cute and I love the layout you used to focus on him! Sally The Monkey is hilariously cute with her binkie, and that cute monkey die-cut border on the bottom. Two fun and cheerful cards!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend Cabio! You attitude is wonderful - about putting a smile on your face and moving on! That certainly doesn't stop the grieving, but it helps to push through it! Otherwise, your cards are both fabulous! That little duck is so beautifully colored and the orange ribbon really fits the bill (no pun intended!) Love the bright sunshiny colors you've used on both. Just fabulous design work...hugs...Barb <><
