A card for a special friend....and update on ducklings

Well we have managed to re build the shed and even got the roof on! need to do the felting of the roof tomorrow and then we can start work on the back half of the allotment we have inherited a blackcurrent bush and me with my big ideas thought we could have a small section of the back half of the allotment as a fruit corner so we have to fence/mesh it in or there will be no fruit because once the ducklings are big enough that is where they will be moving to live and ducks being duck they will try to eat everything in sight! lol.... Here is what they looked like last time you saw them 

Well they were very small and cute! 21/4/2010
they were 1 week old there....
here they are today 3½ weeks later.... I can't beleive that are only 4½ weeks old
OMG how much they are grown.... tehehheeee
Ok so with our busy day 
I just managed to finish a card I started yesterday...
I have made this card for a lovely friend just because.....

I have used this way cute Lili of the valley bear looking for butterflies tehehehee bless him!
and really loved using their Awesome sketch this week Lili of the valley - Cute Sketch
Stamp and Create - Monthly Challenge - Ribbon - I have used some pale blue organza although the photo is not showing it very well! Secret Crafter - Metal - Metal and blue crystal brads
I also used distress inks and sakura stardust pens and also a Penny black sentiment for the Penny black challenge this week which is flowers.... I have used some of the yummi Bo Bunny papers which I bought with some of my wages I did not even get out of the shop before spending some of my wages but well they are sooooooo yummi I felt I HAD too! tehhehee soooo these papers are soo summery they make me feel happy! so you see I NEEDED them! and while of the note of summery I see that One stop's challenge is Summer Breeze so maybe this card fits that too! 
Ok off to bed tired and busy day again tomorrow! 
hope you liked my card and pictures and you did not nod off through my long post! thehee :0)
