This month I'm featuring the marque card and paper sunburst cards. I believe the marque card has been re-named recently as the peek-a-boo card but which ever you call it it's a fun card!


 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
Calendar


The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:
Mini New Year
                                                 

  Remember that game we used to play at recess called duck, duck, duck, goose! or was it goose, goose, goose, duck????  old memory here if you remember let me know.  guess I'm dating
myself, lol! I found the answer: A group of players sit in a circle, facing inward, while another player, the "picker" (a.k.a. the "fox"), (some young children call the "picker" the "ducker") walks around tapping or pointing to each player in turn, calling each a "duck" until finally picking one to be a "goose". The "goose" then rises and chases and tries to tag the "picker", while the "picker" tries to return to and sit where the "goose" had been sitting. If the picker succeeds, the "goose" is now the new picker and the process begins again. If the "goose" succeeds in tagging the picker, the "goose" may return to sit in the previous spot and the "picker" resumes the process. With older players, the "goose" may attempt to tackle the "picker".
 anyway that is what today's stamp set reminded me of
because of the word duck in the set.  Here is my marque and paper sunburst cards for you to see.  Please continue on to Janine's(link below) blog to see all her ducks in a row and the more you comment the better chance you have to win one of our November stamp sets.

  2. Great cards. The partial colouring of the hunting image has a real vintage feel to it.

  11. Funny how we both were thinking duck duck goose. And it probably has been awhile since either of us played it last. Funny how those memories come to our minds. Great cards.
