Our Teapot Tuesday inspiration this week are the Three Tea-Migos in blue, yellow, and green! It's a party for Tink, LaRue, and Sunshine, too! We are to bring light-hearted, upbeat, beautiful, wonderful, and colorful things. Our cards will be sent to children at Hugs and Hopes Club for Sick Kids for children battling critical illnesses.
I loved the goofy faces on the inspiration teapot and immediately thought of this goofy duck image I have. I stamped him three times and watercolored him with Twinkling H20s in Sunflower, Fresh Oregano, and Evening Primrose, and then shaded the background with Stargazer. I colored their bills with an orange marker and then put orange glitter on them. After I cut my Brilliant Blue cardstock with the film strip die, I watercolored it with the Evening Primrose so all my blues would match. I did the same thing for the circle punches so they would shimmer, too!
The "You Quack Me Up!" sentiment is computer generated. On the inside of my card, I also computer-generated in bright blue ink a duck joke that reads:
"What do you call a crate full of ducks?"
A: A box of quackers!
Can you guess what Bertie is flinging this week?

I hope Bertie's not flingin' eggs!! But since I feel we haven't seen her for a while, I suppose she's allowed go a bit quackers.
Great card, it made me smile, and I'm sure the lucky recipient will love it.

Charlene this is so fun and fabulous you can't help but smile. I love the little joke you put inside. That was perfect. How you embellished the sides of this card with the three different colors is clever and I noticed how you took the three colors to your sentiment too. Very creative!
