Rubber Duckie, You're The One!


View my Fantabulous Cricut post HERE

This week at My Craft Spot, we want you to make us laugh!


For ages now, I've wanted to make a card for my husband using Ernie's "Rubber Duckie" song (from Sesame Street) as inspiration - so that's just what I did.  Our anniversary isn't until July so I'm well ahead of the game.  I suppose that the bath time part of the song is a bit, um, suggestive (albeit true!) - but as I really am awfully fond of my husband, the sentiment fits that he's the one for me.  He is my very best friend, my joy of joys and I'm beyond blessed and so very lucky that he's mine.

I created my window card using Plantin SchoolBook for the base and Elegant Edges for the window and scalloped frame.  The tub is from New Arrival and the sweet little rubber duck (which is popped on my card) is from Kate's ABCs.  I punched out little hearts for the corners and did some inking and doodling. I finished off the outside with some Caribbean baker's twine from My Craft Spot.


For the inside of the card, I used stamps from My Craft Spot's Always & Forever set (Happy Anniversary and the little heart).  I also got creative with mixing and matching stamps from My Craft Spot's Friends & Neighbours and Inside & Out Set #2 in order to make the "You're the one" sentiment. I cut a second rubber duck and created a little border using a punch from Stampin' Up to add some more interest to the inside as well. 

I am very much looking forward to seeing what you create for the My Craft Spot challenge this week.  I've got a full week ahead of me and will need some humour to keep me going.  I'll leave you with the Rubber Duckie song to listen to as you get creating!

This is SOOOO cute (and really did make me giggle!)! Is it weird that I know ALL the words to that song (to every verse!)? I used to sing it to my babies at bath time, and it's sort of stuck with me over the years. I'm such a nerd. :) Super cute card - I'm sure your hubby will love it. :)

OH MY GOSH! Can I tell you how much I LOVE your card! When my hunny and I were dating the first thing he ever bought me was this yellow rubber ducky. Weird I know, but on date 3 we were walking by a stand that was selling them and he bought it. I placed it in my car dash and I still have it! It's over 15 years old and no longer yellow, eyes are rubbed off and he's a little gummy but I saved him!
Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Your card is awesome as always Kate!
Have a nice day!

Ok... Didn't want the song stuck in my head so I avoided the video, but I can't stop looking at your card! It's SO cute. The cuts are just perfect and I love how you built up the sentiment with so many stamps!

Oh Kate! This post is the perfect blend of humorous and sappiness! :o) I LOVE how much you love your sweetheart.. I can't tell you how much I'm smiling right now. I already knew you did of course, but this post tugs at my heartstrings. :o) God bless you both! And this card is fantastic! I love the theme, the perfect design, and your creative use of stamps. Seriously, what's NOT to love about every single thing you create? :o) Thanks for ending my day so happily... what's better than a smooshy love with a sense of humor? :o)

(Sorry for the novel! Hehe.) Hugs and blessings!
