Penny Black duck

Hi there,
here I am again today with a new card. I've used one of the cute Penny Black ducks and some designer paper in an unusual colour combo for me, light green and light orange. The focal image was coloured with Copics, the designer paper I used is a digital one.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday challenge - "Spots and Stripes"

Penny Black at all Sorts - "Oh, so cute!"

Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice rest of the day!

Hugs, Vittoria

Tilda with blanket

Hello there crafters,
last week I was discharged from the hospital. The operation went well and the metal paque has finally been removed from my leg. I still have pain, but I hope it will numb as time goes by.
It has taken me a while to complete the Tilda card I want to share with you today. It's for a colleague of mine who had a baby girl some 10 days ago whom he and his wife have named Alice. It will go with the bib I'm cross-stitching with the baby's name on it.
I've chosen one of my all-time favourite colour combos for this cards, that is pink and brown. Dark brown always looks like black on my photos, aarghh!! Some nestie dies, optical designer paper, a Martha Stewart heart punch, some ribbon and flowers made the rest. It's a rather busy card compared to my usual standards, but I think it looks nice, and then it will be hand-delivered, so no postage worries this time, hooray!! LOL
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day.
Happy crafting, Vittoria
