Just Ducky
01-21-2011, 10:07 PM
well, give me a boot while ya at it Linda... I haven't even got an idea of what I gonna do for my own swap yet... :swoon:

mrubyjean
01-22-2011, 02:44 AM
OK, so I thought I'd better get started as I wanted to try some different techniques (for me) and needed to see if I could make cards I like. I came up with these two, which I really like, but I feel a bit unsure about, as they are out of my box...both being hand-drawn and the second being on the whimsical side... :twitcy:

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/512/medium/1_duckswap2.JPG http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/512/medium/1_duckswap1.JPG

The second one which I think of as "Clueless Duck" or "What Just Happened?!" did not scan true to color or clarity but you get the idea, I hope...it is hand-drawn and also collaged with clear bead gel and yellow feathers.

Joss
01-22-2011, 08:44 AM
wwwaaaaaaa booohoooohoooo, no one told me, and I missed it.My friend -duckles's first swap! I saw Martha's awesome duck on the 365 thread which said 'for justducky's' swap, and got a shock!

02-03-2011, 04:48 PM
Me thinks that you're right the Duck could be snowed in with no power, she usually messages me at least once a day to remind me of something....its been suspiciously quiet......maybe she got dragged off to jail for stealling all the "duck" cards....LOL

Just Ducky
02-03-2011, 10:51 PM
now how is a Duck gonna swim in a FROZEN snow covered POND ????? this duck is leaving Michigan... gonna go down under where is SuMMer time...

and I taking ALL the duck cards.... ALL... everyone of them....
ya know I have heard horror stories about how it so hard to trade out ????? cards.. and now I got just the opposite problem... HOW am I going to give up ANY of my babies...?????

so lesson learned with my first and might be my last..... swap... don't do a swap for something you really really love...

OK... Mousie... what can I say... they great... all... the whole litter/clutch/batch/flock...
and Alana... Miss Ducky sure don't need an apron, all spills just ROLL off her back...
and then.... Lydia, my Lydia... or should it be T.I.M.hands.. real sweethearts.. and another hard choice I see... already have changed my mind 4 times... no make that 6....

and for the record... nope didn't lose power with the BIG snow, but I was pooped from moving it ... and I just have the porch to take care of and it's got a roof... but still had over a couple feet of wonderous white fluff from all the blowing around... and the front porch is 12x35 and I felt every inch of it....:swoon: poor hubby(Mel) ... I think he's still out there somewhere... saw him late yesterday afternoon, ya think he would come in for supper.....

Now I hope you have been taking pictures! LOL That poor man.. Ducky you know you threw him out to the wolves and into the snow.....LOL:jiggy:

Poor Ducky to pooped... so funny.. been missing ya Ducks!

I bet you change your mind again when they all come in... seeing them is just unbelievable..LOL
I wonder if I would be as bad with a mouse swap.... might do one of them later and say you have to do four cards... two of each design .. heehee then I could keep one..*laughs*

alanabannana
02-04-2011, 07:36 AM
see. I was thinking ahead Ms. Ducky when I made a special personalized hostess card for you - made that choice for you! You could always take pictures or scan all the cards and keep an album of them for yourself.

Mouseit
02-04-2011, 07:54 AM
Now thats a very good idea Alana!

Just Ducky
02-04-2011, 09:55 PM
thanks for the scan hint... gonna do that... won't have all the orginals but they all will forever be in the "Duck Album.."

ya Mousie... you go ahead and have a mousie swap... then you will know what I am going through over here... ain't easy, I tellin ya.... but IF I do ya a mouse card I thinking of using some special inks... the kind when you blow on it.... it disapears.... now you see it now you don't....

Wow that was quick - they only went in the post Monday afternoon - they obviously didn't want to miss so flapped extra hard - maybe Rev Duck had a word to someone.

02-18-2011, 10:56 PM
LOL Ducky tell the Rev duck to put in a good word with that someone for me too. My husband will mail my cards out on Tuesday. I am not driving since all this rain has made my road mucky again.

no worries Linda... with Rev. Duck and added help from Elvis Duck your cards will be here with time to spare...

heard today from one of my other gals, she said she mailed today... so we are looking good..
sure glad I don't have to mail my cards... I finally STARTED today...on getting my duckys done... (well, started anyway) pretty bad if the hostess is THE late one...:unsure:

02-19-2011, 06:48 AM
Lovely Helen, and yes we will remind you.. being a watercolourist myself... heehee I know how many hours goes into one card.... the secret is to work on the four cards at once, so as one is drying do the next step on the others and etc..LOL

Oh now I see why Ducky didn't invite me to the swap. She doesn't even have her cards done for her own swap. Shame-shame!! Whenever I host a swap Ducky is the first one busting on me if I don't have my cards done and posted within a week of starting my swap. Naughty Ducky girl you should be ashamed of yourself - haha!!

02-19-2011, 11:43 PM
what ???? me late ??? never happen.. got my ducky cards done today.. signed and sitting in their little plastic sleevie things... and NO show and tell... at least not tonight... I sitting at the 'other' computer and no scanner hooked to this one...

and ICraft I see you got a fun game going in your tree swap... darn, I was gonna try my gals and guy with a game... let me think.... ducky game ??? how many feathers could a yellow duck pluck if a yellow duck could pluck feathers... no... have to think of something else, duck said he ain't pluckin' feathers for anyone... toooooo cold.... and he's not a good lookin' naked duck...

Chardonnay1965
02-19-2011, 11:56 PM
what?? nude Ducks?? did I hear someone say the Duck was gonna do a strip tease??..lol

HHC
02-20-2011, 02:25 AM
Excccuuuuse me people!!!!!! When you are the hostess of a swap, you are not in quite the same hurry because you don't have to MAIL the cards and wait for the whim of the postal folks to deliver. So getting started not long before they are due is not a bad thing at all, when you the hostess. Just sayin'. ;)

Our sweet hostess... I hope you show us your beauties tomorrow. I do! :) And tell that Ducky no pulling of feathers! It's much too cold!

Just Ducky
02-20-2011, 02:37 AM
hay Helen..thanks fer sticking up for me gal, they pickin on me..and poor ducky is hiding in corner again, he's afraid someone gonna pluck his tail feathers

never fear, the Duck is always near....

so... this is it... The Duck pond is empty... all cards were mailed Monday the 28th..
you guys been great, your cards are great and this first "Just Ducky" swap was great...

hoping everyone is happy with their returns... found it's not easy to put 3 little cards into each envelope... but I tried .... each duck wanted to stay here with me, but I shoved and pushed and taped the envelopes shut....

PLEASE ---- PLEASE... try to come here to the thread when you receive your cards and let everyone know who you got your cards from... most of us like to know where our little works of love went... and please do click them a ... YOU ROCK....

so again thank you all... it was fun, really it was... and I got thinking cap on for a follow up swap, just a tad different... no ducks.... but close....

I stopped at the post office today and I could hear those ducks as soon as I got out of the car. They really didn't want to be left in a lonely POBox all weekend. LOL

My thanks go to the Quackiest Hostess for a Splash of a swap and an the adorable Ducky's Duck Pond card for my collection. To Threshold90 for for the Rowdy Daffy Duck, who was probably the one making all the noise I heard, to JAW for rescueing a cute little duck, and to my Teddybear loving friend Chardonnay who said it with Flowers. Thank you all.

wow---wow and super WOW... all of the USA duckies are now in their new homes..
that was fast...

NOW ALL WE GOTTA hear from IS GET THEM ..3.. DOWN UNDER, Australian gals... fly ducky fly....
I am laying odds that .... Chardonnay will be first... Jouquil second .....and that fast running Mouseit third.... mousie runs fast but her long tail trips her up all the time....


as a before swap... I am hoping to start "Duckies Pond Buddies" swap as soon as our Australian gals are counted ...
thinking about asking for buddies for the duck.... like... frogs - turtles - fishies - that kind of thing... so put your thinking caps on .... I will be wanting 3 different critters so each person can receive a mix... what's ya think ???
you know the Ducks is always needing input....

Turtles is good, fishes have been done.....did a frog one in a 1:1 trade.. LOL
