DD #36

Have not been playing at The Dynamic Duos for quite sometime now and I love the theme of this week as I am planning to send more cards to Cards from the Heart Card Drive

Unfortunately, it's dark at this hour and I could not capture the redness of my card.  Pretty simple direct card to make which involves a couple of layers of border punch to make 3/4 of the front panel and the top embossing is from SU.  The sentiment is from Unity Stamp which is heat embossed in white on a black cardstock. I also added a belt loop on my polka dots ribbon.  

As this is a Valentine card, I am also submitting this card to Penny Black at All SortsPurple Onions Designs

Hope everyone is enjoying your Sunday.  Last Tuesday, we had about 15cm of snow and the temperature remains below freezing point and today we had more snow again - 10cm.  Although the temperature is -5 degrees celcius but with the wind coming from the east it felt like -10 degrees celcius.  

Despite the cold, DH and I went for an hour walk and took a couple of shots.  

All the ducks were rushing to us the moment we were coming close to them as they thought that we had food for them - poor ducks!  On left hand side, the swan was chasing away the duck as it thought that we brought some food for them!

I am working fulltime again this week which means that I will have little time to make card but I hope to be able to sneak in at least one.  Thank you for sweet comments and wishing you a lovely day!

It's good to know that swans are the same the world over - my boys always lecture the swans about being bullies, lol! We had 10 cm yesterday, and today? Up to +8C and now it's gone. Very strange!
I love the look of the punched layers - so lacy! - and the embossing on the top is so crisp. Really pretty!
