Good morning all, as it is the 8th of the month that means it is time for me to share my Silhouette project for you all but before I do that I want to share something else and that is this little bit of family history. You see today is a very important day as we wish 
Happy Birthday to my grandson Harley who is 1 today, 
My step dad who is 79 today, 
My brother in law who is 47 today & 
David's uncle who would have been 64 today had he not passed away a couple of days prior to his birthday last year.
Do you see the connection apart from my step dad of course! Each generation is born on the birthday of their uncle, how many times does that happen?

Anyhow enough waffling and back to my project which is of course a large 8" shaped card for Harley who is mad about ducks, yes I know this looks like a chick but it is supposed to be a duck according to the Silhouette Store. I mirrored the image left, then welded it together to make the shape, then typed the birthday and welded that not only to itself (each letter) but to the shaped card too. I then made an offset layer to give me the edge around the image. I cut another layer of both the duck and the wording and placed the duck on action wobbles so it sort of jiggles around along with the googly eyes.
