You know what they say about rain..... Nice weather for ducks!
Lets face we had plenty of rain this morning considering it was mean't to be a scorcher!
Well look who visited our garden this afternoon - a duck!
Unfortunately a bit worse for wear duck, she had some feathers missing from her back and some from her neck and seemed a little bit muddy.
At first sight I wondered if she had been run over as she was limping a little, my neighbour Mary said she would ring the Swan Sanctuary as they are local and the man came to collect her and explained that at this time of year Male Ducks do tend to get a bit randy (ooh er!)which results in lots of feather plucking and hence the reason she was walking like John Wayne!!
He did assure us she would make a full recovery so I do feel we have done a good deed for the day which makes you feel great!
I did manage to make a card after the Duck saga and used the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday and just had to use my freshly purchased Nora she just has to be the cutest CC design ever I love her! As soon as I got her I knew I had to use my Magnolia background stamp and I am pleased with the result she looks like she hasn't a care in the world don't you think?
Unfortunately it was late in the day so pic is a little dark
There is lots of stickles on the flowers and butterflies and sparkle on the papermania shimmer dots, I tried to capture this here and as you can see failed miserably!!!
I will also be entering my card for Simon Say's as the challenge this week is Things with wings and I spy 3 butterflies on my card.
Hope you have had a lovely weekend and if you run the marathon you deserve that medal cos you must be stark raving mad!!!
I break out in a sweat just watching I definitely don't have enough puff for that sport!
Enjoy your evening!
