Week 18 - Prompt: "Nature"

How perfect is this? This week's prompt is "Nature" (love Emily's card...don't you? I must try SEWING on my cards/papers!)....

So the NATURE prompt. At work on Monday, we discovered a duck had nested in the courtyard in our building...and 11 ducklings were waddling about with their mama. HOW CUTE IS THIS? Nothing like fuzzy baby animals to melt the hearts of grownups. You can't help pause for a few minutes each time you pass the window to check on the little darlings. (The game warden was called - we thought they would need to be moved. But he said the ducklings are fine as long as we don't feed them, just keep them supplied with clean water. Appears there are plenty of bugs for them to eat in the foliage...and in a few weeks they will fly away. We will miss them!)

Adhered photo to card. Sanded edges. Green velvet rickrack ribbon and May Arts purple wired puffs ribbon...(The ribbons are as soft as I imagine the baby ducks would feel if we could hold and pet them! )Journaling on back reads: "Lovely serendipity. 'Nature' is this week's prompt, and just LOOK at what appeared at work on Monday! So beautiful. I wish I could pet one!"

Here's to experiencing more of Nature's beauty in all our lives. It does a heart good.

Thanks for a great prompt, Emily!
