Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Petite Pairs meets Stampin’ Up! new DSP Stacks
As you know, there are days when getting to my craft desk is pretty much impossible. My husband Chris works shifts and those often fall at the weekend. Put it this way, when he starts a run of working at the weekend, that’s it, game over for the next 5 weeks each Saturday and Sunday.
He’s either very here (and very helpful to be fair!) or very not here…. His hours are long, he’s out of the house for 14 hours straight and he does 4 of those on the trot.
That kind of means that I have to put my ‘work’ on hold and be full on Mummy. This is not a bad thing though…! I adore my children and adore how busy they keep me (don’t go there with how much washing they also provide me!), but there are days when I can snatch 15 minutes here and there to myself. Not enough to break out the craft supplies, but enough that I can enjoy a coffee with a notebook in front of me.
I always have notebooks around. They’re in my handbag, in the car, in the kitchen. Everywhere!
And when I can snatch those few minutes to myself, I let my brain spill out ideas for projects, for cards, for blog posts, for themed series.
And getting to the (quite clearly longwinded) point of the aforementioned chatter, this card today was one that I sketched out during one of those weekend coffee breaks!
I only had pre order sneak peak demo stuff at the time, so I was even scribbling down colours too!
My finished card remains true to the sketch I drew out, including the new Neutrals DSP stacks and Watermelon Wonder cardstock. However, I pulled out Petite Pairs for my greeting. I thought it had gone on the retiring list, so was a very happy bunny when it reappeared and was so pleased, I knew I had to use it!
I hope you like my card today, despite the waffly chatter!!!
