My lil' pumpkin...

We all do it...we have lil' names for our DHs, kids, pets, friends...and in this house, you find a little pumpkin. Ok two lil' pumpkins. I am taking advantage of calling them cute names now because I am sure lil' pumpkin won't fly when they are teenagers. I bought this cute ducky a few months ago from A muse. I just couldn't resist him. There is something about ducks that reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in this BEAUTIFUL city called Victoria. We used to go to Beacon Hill Park every other weekend and feed the ducks (which by the way I just learned is NOT good for ducks) and now any time I see ducks I get nostalgic about those good ol' days.

I love Beacon Hill park! It's been quite a while. I lived in Victoria for a year in the early '90's. Gee I feel old. Anyway, very cute duck card. I love the simplicity! TFS!

Adorable card!
I visited Victoria about 10 years ago. I always count it as one of the prettiest places I have traveled to.

What a great story. We fed the ducks too. I remember we would stop at the 7-11 and pick up bags of bread and take them to the lake for the ducks. It was fun until I tripped and fell in the lake!

I love your card. It's so adorable.
