Brock and his Ducks Bring Joy!

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and I) are back with another challenge this month--our 15th month!  We are now well into year #2!

Jeanette provided the challenge for July and she used the premise of my June challenge:  We were given three questions that we asked one of the other two members of the Ready-Set-Go team!  I got to ask Jeanette the questions and then Kelly asked me and Jeanette asked Kelly.  Got it?!  The questions were as follows;  1--What is your favorite season?  2--What is the first word that comes to mind when I say the word "fun"?  3--What is your favorite embellishment to use when making cards?  Ready? Set. Go!

So--I followed directions and asked Jeanette.  She said she purposely didn't think of her answers until I asked. #1--Her favorite season was Spring!  #2--What/Who does she think of when she hears the word fun--her son Brock!  #3--Her favorite embellishment--this was hard as she likes several, but she went with Enamel Dots!  

I knew I wanted to go with a duck image as Brock loves his ducks and feeding them.  I think ducks are springy as that is the time they have their little ducklings.  I added some spring time rain boots as the background paper.  I think Brock brings many people Joy!  I know he brings his mom and entire family tons of JOY!

Here is the inside of my card:

Oh my goodness, Barb... I am crying here. Literally! You have brought joy-filled tears to my eyes as you've given a true reflection of Brock in this gorgeous creation. Spring, yes. Enamel dots, yes. Brock, YES!!! He does love his ducks!

Thank you for taking the challenge and going with it... and for creating a beautiful card in the process!
