Watercolour scene - boat on the beach

The earthquakes we are experiencing here in Wellington have given me an unexpected day at home today. Crafting seemed like a good option (when I wasn’t working from home). I played with my new rubbadubbadoo boat stamp. I am enjoying creating one layer cards. I have been really taken with the cards created by Sanketij and thought I would have a go …

… and look at that, this card fits the nautical challenge from the curtain call, the by the sea challenge from Simon Says Stamp and the one-layer Wednesday challenge perfectly.

Another rubbadubbadoo stamp … I haven’t quite finished this card, I suspect it may end up with some words in the top right of the card at some point … but I also kind of like all of the white space.

This stamp reminded me of my dog River Song. She loves to dig in her sand pit … but the other day she decided to dig in my pot plants. Poor plants, and poor carpet … but she was a very happy puppy, cute little rascal:

River resting after spending time in her sandpit ... check out her nose and paws for the digging evidence :)

Thank you card for my boss

Thank you card for my boss

My boss at work did something cool the other week. My initial reaction when he asked me to trust him to do this was “yeah right”, which is a kiwi-ism and is said sarcastically, so basically, “no way”. So, although my boss is actually English (and not a kiwi), he has been living in NZ for long enough to get the reference. It is also one of those times when you want to say thank you but not gush … so my non-gushy thank you card for my boss was made.

The kiwi farmer stamp is from rubbadubbadoo, the alphabet medley stamp set is from darkroom door, and the image is primarily colored with inktense pencils. I really wish I had placed the text just slightly higher, ah well.
