Having said that, however, I'm here with a birthday card for Friday's DJKASE! Sorry for any confuzzlement.
The card artist and follower that I'm copylimenting today is the brilliant Karen Mead of Made by Meadie. Karen is from Tasmania Australia. She has been blogging since August 2011 and her work is consistently fabulous and clean and simple (CAS)! It was very difficult to narrow the choices down to one.
Here is the card made by Karen that I chose to DJKASE. Karen posted this card on her blog on May 11, 2013:
Changing Karen's layout a bit to work with the PTI sketch, I made this:
Karen's duck, Gerome, and my duck, Gunther, are cousins. Gerome's grandmother and Gunther's grandmother are brothers. Unfortunately, Gunther's family's line is endangered given that he is from a closed stamp company. In addition, the line is very well known by Ornithologists all over the world, not to mention dental hygienists, because if you look closely you will see that Gunther has a full set of teeth. Other ducks peck at seed corn with their beaks, but not Gunther. No. Gunther can eat his corn straight off the cob! Dude!
(Psst, I realize that Gerome is a duck and Gunther is a goose, but Gunther doesn't know he was adopted, and he for sure doesn't know he's a goose, so please don't say anything about that. Also, some people use geese as watch dogs and I know Gunny looks a bit menacing with those eyes and those teeth, but he's really gentle as a duck.)
I forgot when I was posting this to add that I used all kinda snippets on my ducky goose card, so I'm going to take it over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to show the other girls. Di has ducks there, so Gunther will feel right at home. I think I'll get through the gates in time for my second visit this week.
In my New Friends Corner I'm delighted to introduce you to Rebecca Luminarias of thurston post. Rebecca has been blogging since February 2011. (Happy 2nd Blogoversary, Rebecca, and many, many more!!)

I noticed something in the PTI challenge instructions that I didn't notice until after I posted my card: we were to use one of the designer's free printable art designs on our card. I linked my card and then I modified it to follow the PTI rules. I printed the superb circular HB design by Lizzie Jones, cut it out, and popped it on my card to link this version.
