Lucky Ducky My Deer

Just got a call that they are postponing my radiation until noon, so I have a little time to show off a couple cuties I finished up this weekend!! 

I was called a "Lucky Duck" for winning StarryDeborah's drawing, and you know it's true! lol  Which reminded me that I had this darling little duck/pocket knick knack sitting in my studio, just waiting to be made into something. 

So I made a little pincushion to stick in the pocket and also made up a couple of flower head pins to stick in there, just for fun!

And then, I got a cute new deer stamp and just had to make a little something with that...(don't you just love Michael's 40% off coupons!)

                        Dear Dear
Totally girly and cute as a button---oh, and with a cute button too!  :o)  These are actually little open-up cards which are blank inside for you to pen a special message to your Dear!

So, is anyone else having a pain in the arse with Blogger lately?  The pics don't go where they should and then when you move them (which is not going as easy as it should either), they start centering all your text??  AND trying to add a link to a picture doesn't seem to work anymore either.....Grrr.......

Too cute! I especially love the little duck pin cushion! Don't know how in the world you made those little, itty, bitty flowers! lol

Both are so cute! I've been having a little bit of trouble with blogger but I thought it was because I'm in Mozilla. For me it's the opposite problem. I want it to center my text and it doesn't.

That duck is the most adorable thing. It makes me smile just looking at it. What a great idea to make a pincushion out of the sweet duck.

Y'know, I'm going to quit whining about my 3-days-a-week physical therapy torture as your cheerfulness in relation to your chemo inspires me. So no more wimping out on my part. I hope today goes well for you.

What a sweet ducky! I would probably talk to him if he were my sewing companion (as if I could sew)!
The deer is too cute, too! Is that one of those teeeeensy little buttons, smaller than your pinky fingernail? I have some of those.

Oh, and Blogger is always like that for me (intermittently). I changed to the wide view template, which seemed to help. Not crazy about it, but whatever. Now if I could just get around to making a new banner.

Really cute karen! Reminds me of spring :)
And yes, photo moving around now on blogger is soooo frustrating! I like how it's so easy to enlarge etc. a pic, but moving them where I want, makes me fiesty!!
Thinking about you,
