Just Ducky

Another one?  Yup, I'm on a roll this week!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for my co-worker.  She has a thing for ducks.  I immediately thought of Duck, Duck, Goose from Saturated Canary.  I colored these cuties with Copics and cut them out using my Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two Nestabilities.  I also used my Classic Circles to cut out the sentiment (perfect, right?) from Create with TLC.  Papers are The Sweetest Thing: Tangerine by My Mind's Eye.  I added the usual - bling, flowers, metal corners - and used one of my trusty Martha Stewart border punches.  Sketch is the current Seems A Little Sketchy challenge (#46).

I can't believe how quickly this week is going by!  Summer is drawing to a close here and the kids are heading back to school.  Not mine.  Not yet.  But this time next year I will be sending him off to his first day of Kindergarten.  He has been in day care since he was six weeks old so I am used to not being with him during the day, all day, every day.  But the thought of school makes me realize just how quickly he is growing up!  He'll be celebrating another birthday soon and it seems like just the other day when I was bringing him home from the hospital.  He's morphed from baby to toddler to little boy right before my very eyes and sometimes I just want to freeze time.  Just for a bit.  I know I can't.  He won't be my little boy forever, even if he'll always be my baby, so I try to savor all the moments - big and small, treasure the memories, and look forward to what the future holds.  I take lots of pictures so that helps!  lol  Here's one from this weekend when he went minigolfing for the first time:

See, SO big!  Anyway...  off to start another day!  Thanks for visiting and hope you have a good one!
