Hi Everyone
Another scorcher of a day here in the UK and having spent several hours doing some gardening I've just got to darn hot!!! I'm off out shortly for a family BBQ but just grabbed an hour in my craftroom to make this quick card.

It features the duck, love it's facial expression,  from the new Farm animal stamp set from Katzelkraft, the rest all all Tim Holtz stamps the majority of which are older stamps of his so it's good to give them an airing.  All has been created on a gelli print from my stash.
The duck was stamped onto a separate piece of paper and I have changed the direction of his feet so it can tippy toe on the tightrope before I added it to the background. 
I am also entering this into the latest challenge over at Country View Challenges where the theme is Be Humorous

Hope you're having a fabulous Sunday and thanks for stopping by
