I have a quacky card today in celebration of the start of Spring this week! I really should have put some snow at this cute duck's feet because that's how we're welcoming Spring in Michigan - ugh!  But this little duck is so darn cute he can perk up any cold day.  This is your inspiration for the new challenge today at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Here's the fun sketch that Sally drew up for this week's challenge and it's just terrific! I hope you'll use it and join us in the fun.

And this week Sally Ann at Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor. We love using Digi Stamp Boutique images - they make such wonderful cards.  The grand prize winner of the challenge this week will receive a £10 voucher to Digi Stamp Boutique - a fantastic prize.  Thanks for your generous sponsorship Sally Ann!

This adorable ducky is from Digi Stamp Boutique and called "For You Quacky".  It's one of DSB's offer of the month so if you like it, buy it now at a discount :-)  I colored it up with Copic markers, used a bit of crystal lacquer on his beak and paired it with papers from American Crafts.  The flower embellishment was created using dies and a fabric brad from Stampin' Up.

So there you have it - a wacky, quacky way to usher in Spring.  Now head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday for a lot more inspiration with more images from Digi Stamp Boutique.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love that gorgeous image and the bright colours. Fingers crossed we have escaped the snow in my part of the UK this year although this time last year was a different story.
