Saturday 27 August 2022


 Good morning,  it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin', the theme for this fortnight is food and/ or drink.
 I've used some fun  digistamps from Vera Lane Studios, teamed with some 'real' stamps for the border and wine glasses. Images coloured with copic markers and a little background stencilling. This card was inspired by my Daughter-in-law's experience during Lockdown last year- she's not a drinker but she said the only thing that kept her sane looking after a lively 7 year old and a demanding toddler was googling  ' holiday getaways  for two- no children allowed' - with a large glass of wine in hand, after she'd put the girls to bed! I doubt if she was the only young Mum doing this!

 Please take a look at the challenge blog, there's plenty of inspiration from the rest of the team and, hopefully, you'll be inspired to join us. We do need to see some stamping on your creations (digis are fine!) 

Thanks for visiting, enjoy the weekend.

This is such fun Chris and love the story behind it, I think a few Grannies might also have fallen into that category, not that I'm admitting anything mind you.

Hi Cjris,
your card did make me chuckle and it's really brilliant and wonderfully created.
I also chuckled at your Daughter I bet as you say lots of Mum's were also having a little drop to calm their selves after a long day teaching them as there was no school.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Awesome fun card Chris. These digis from Vera Lane are so cute aren't they. Also feel a little sorry for all moms and dads with kids during the lockdown.
I was so happy that my kida are groinng up.
But you've been making beautiful cards lately. Unfortunately I was not able to come by. I was often babysitting to our grandson Teun the last few weeks.
But now I have little more time;)
