Duck Race

We once stayed in a lodge owned by the Forestry Commission and they had a rubber duck race on the river that flowed through the forest. It was great fun, made even more hilarious by the organisers mad Labrador pup which swum down the river with the rubber ducks and every time it caught one it throw it out of the river, onto the shore. The organiser was charging down the bank lobbing them back in. This card made me laugh when I remembered the race


There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

The sentiment was heat embossed


and I added some clear embellishments to the stream and mounted the image onto a piece of blue card before adding to a slimline card base
