Just Ducky...

Good morning! Well, as good as a Monday can be! ;-) I didn't sleep worth beans last night. Probably 'cause I took a nap yesterday - but I kept it short and didn't think it would affect my sleep last night. Bah humbug. Now I'm starting out the day tired and grouchy. Hopefully an hour drive with the window down and the stereo blaring will help with that. :-)

Anyways, wanted to share my next new card. This image is also by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I kept the layout VERY simple because there is a trick to this card that I'll show you in just a minute. Here is the card all put together...



And what is unique about it you ask? Well, the main image is held on with magnets. So the front portion (yellow mat and all) will pull off the card and can be stuck on a magnetic surface and kept as a magnet. There is another magnet under the layered paper on the base card...that's how the main image is held on.



I thought I'd take it one step further and make "sayings" for the duck and put them on magnets...but forgot that they'd repel going the other direction...so that didn't work. Oh well, cute as is.

I best be getting dressed for work. This might be a long week. One of the four of us is on vacation - so that makes things a little more chaotic. And I'm her backup person for membership (which takes about 1/2 the day on Tuesdays and you have to take the system completely down...so you need to be quick and accurate). I've only done it a couple times...so wish me luck tomorrow! I think we also have a meeting with the Director today. Not sure what that's about. She seems to be on our case a lot lately. She must be catching flack from further up the management chain.

Have a great day!

Jane

Aww, Jane. This duck is adorable. I don't have any of the High Hopes stamps. Maybe we could swap images sometime. Not sure I put a list on the Yahoo Group, but I could tomorrow. :)

Hope you have an easy day tomorrow. If busy, at least stress free. *wink* Kelly L from SBS4

Oh, I've got this image, too, but haven't used it yet (like the 50,000 other stamps I own!)...
GREAT idea with the magnet and how you connected it to the card with a magnet on the inside!
