just ducky

Morning Girls
Happy Wednesday :)
Our bathroom is being ripped out today ready for the refit.  I'm not at all looking forward to the mess but needs must when things get old and tired eh.  I've chosen a bang up to date suite with a gorgeous black sink, yes, you read it right.  A black sink!!  It's stunning!!!  I'm hoping what I see in my head transpired to the room, I'm sure it will but there's always a little doubt when you undertake such a big job isn't there.

It's time for a new challenge over on The Paper Shelter today.  Can you guess the theme?
Yip, we're going all lovey dovey this week with a VALENTINE theme.
I've gone for non traditional valentine colours although there are hearts on the paper.  Well it's nice to be different isn't it?

papers - Sassy Designs
hearts banner die - That Craft Place
bakers twine - The Ribbon Girl
chipboard heart from me stash
sentiment - my own

That's my bit of inspiration for you :)  Hopefully you'll have time to play along.

  3. Awww.. how cute is this image! I love those little duck lips and isn't she so coy and blushing? Great papers too on this great Valentine card.

  4. Love the non-traditional colors, but lots of hearts, in-keeping with the theme! ... and of course I love the heart banner (got it - thanks!). Those duckies are adorable! Good luck with the renovations. Ours took 4 months - though we ended up doing two at once! Well worth it in the end. We ripped out the originals (from 1961!)
