Have you ever stamped a card in extreme conditions? or in a place you were supposed to do something else? Well, I bet you do if you are a stubborn stamper as I am.
And as I didn’t want to miss out the Nautical Themed Challenge launched on Global Design Project today my entry was partially made in a squash court while my husband was playing a match.
I was keen to use the images of Baby Bear stamp set or Foxy Friends for this project and I also had in mind adding a positive sentiment or quote about the beach or the sea such as: “seas the day”, “life’s a beach”.. etc using Labeler Alphabet stamp set.
Below a picture of my first attempt to do this.
Sooo many things I could do with this tools but I did my best just to brought you up the raw idea.
Do you notice that the foxy got a cast in the right leg? Perhaps you don’t. And perhaps I failed trying to make the foxy looks slightly sick.
- Thick whisper white card stock for the card base.
- Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Night of Navy ( waves)

The story behind this card
After a fun frenzy week with my family and an even more busy weekend I had to stamp my card on extreme conditions. I only used my mini misti as a portable table.
All quiet calm in the picture below …
But the true is that a squash court at the evening is not the right place to craft. It is a very noisy place and well Emma ( my toddler) was around wanting to play so I stamped letter by letter each time I could knowing that I couldn’t do this when arriving at home as my hubby have plans to watch a movie and also get some snacks done. Thanks God, Harris was happily sleeping in his pushchair and when we get home Emma went straight away to her bed.
I wrongly thought that because my hubby is in holiday I’ll have more time for crafting but no… however I’m happy to spend time with him and my children. They are a blessing in my life as well is Stampin’ Up! All together fill my life with joy :).
Thanks for stopping by and do not hesitate to leave a comment. I would love to hear form you!
