Follow The Leader?

You would not believe how fast the snow is falling here in our part of New England! We have gotten 19 inches in about 131/2 hours and it is still snowing. In honor of this storm I thought I would post this card. This is a Dustin Pike image that I love. The expressions on each duck's face is so funny, they look dazed from the chilly surroundings. This image went along with some other carnival images I bought a while back. My first thought was the ducks messed up and didn't make it to Florida!

I don't know if you can tell but there is lots of glitter on this card. I glittered the water, the drippy ice on the side, at the bottom of their eyes. all the snowflakes and on top of the snow(Flower Soft). I really wanted a lot of sparkle against the bright colors! I also couldn't resist adding speech bubbles. The art teacher at school would shoot me if she saw them!

These are some wonderful challenges that fit my card

Aly's Sunday Sketch Challenge ASC33-This challenge is "Things with Wings". All these ducks take care of the wings!

CES Challenge #18-This challenge is all about "Creatures both great and small". Great idea for a challenge theme!

Craft Your Days Away Challenge #11-This week their challenge is "Anything Goes" one of my favorite themes!

Create4Fun Challenge Week 02-This is the great sketch I used for my card!

Creative Inspirations Challenge #94-This challenge is a photo inspiration for the colors (blue, brown , white). I love these colors together.

Crafts And Me Challenge #21-This challenge this week is "Paper Tearing". Not something I do often, just right for this card though!

Creative Belli Blog Challenge #108-Their challenge is "Snow". I like it on my cards not so much out my window.

Double Dutch Challenge #59-Make a scene is the challenge this week. I added the snow, the sky and the flakes to create the scene.

Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge-This challenge is "Baby It's Cold Outside". I thought this Dustin Pike digi worked perfect for the cold!

Papertake Weekly Challenge-Cold and Frosty Morning is their challenge this week. These little guys look very cold and frosty in the water!

Stamp With Fun Challenge #93-This week the challenge is "Snow", I added it to the ground with Flower Soft and put snowflakes in the sky and as embellishments.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge-Try Something Different, my different is paper tearing. I NEVER to this technique. I am always afraid of tearing too much. I think it looks good on this card though.

The Crazy Challenge CCH#49-This challenge is to use "Animals" on your creation, I hope ducks count!

These are all fabulous challenges so be sure to stop by and play along with them!
