Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Touches of Texture with a little Weather Together Side

Firstly I want to thank everyone who’s taken part in the Pootles Colour Challenges over the last 4 months. I had great fun creating them and coming up with colour combinations, but I’ve felt for a while that while I happily work under pressure, not everyone does. And I would never want anyone reading my blog to feel they ‘ought’ to participate in a challenge. One of the things I’ve heard over the last month particularly are lots of apologies. People emailing me to apologise for not taking part because they’re unwell or busy or something else. I never want people to feel they need to apologise for something that’s meant to be fun. Because then it’s not fun anymore is it?

So I’ve decided to take the colour challenge off my blog. Like everything though, it doesn’t mean I won’t pop the odd one back in now and again, but it won’t be regular!

However, I will still remain faithfully providing 7 blog posts a week with 3 of them being video tutorials too. Nothing will change in that sense, so never fear!

My card today was destined to be a colour challenge, but I still love it for it’s own unique qualities!

I love the Touches of Texture stamp set and it is the perfect backdrop for a bit of burlap ribbon. And that in turn provides a great backdrop for a Classic Label punched sentiment from the Weather Together stamp set.

Not just for rainy days, Weather Together is a great universal set!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, I hope you’re doing something fun somewhere!
