Spotty, dotty stuff...

Hello there. It's me again, along with my grubby craft desk, mat and fingers. I don't feel like  I have managed to get anything done at all this week so this WOYWW post is a complete midnight miracle.
I have spent EVERY waking minute chasing after a speedy toddler. Sigh. I used to look at mums of many and say, "Well, I can't be that busy, I've only got one baby..." Now, I don't care! One or ten... there just ain't any lounging around time folks!

Yesterday I realised the week was already running away with us and as it's hubby's last holiday week, I thought I would grab an hour in the crafty zone. Again, I am having to let go of all my OCD crafty thoughts and just get stuck in. No time to tweak,, fiddle or twiddle... 
I was feeling dotty in both mind and ink so all the more reason to join in the same themed fun over at Simon Says Stamp. Back to my vintage roots in colour and style...

I would have loved to have created something bigger but I only had an hour, so just a card. Otherwise it'll be Christmas by the time it gets finished. Hmmm, sounds like my housework. Hey-ho, put it on the list girl and go and watch TGBBO instead!
Right, time to sign off here. Until soon, Sarah.

Lovely card, Sarah - even running around after a toddler hasn't stopped you making something beautiful. Well done.
Have a special week - and don't worry about the housework - just hoover before you put up the Christmas tree.... it'll look great for the season - and the rest of the time it either happens or it doesn't!!

Sarah...you did this in AN HOUR?!?! It's lovely. Definitely a Sarah piece of art...with your unmistakeable style. I love how the cardstock is white and then all of a sudden, the brown dots begin to emerge, creating a lovely design! :) I hope all is well with you and your sweet family! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. <3 Candy

Hi Sarah, your desk is just fine ... plenty for a nosy parker like me to peak at ... and your card is gorgeous ... love the muted colours and all your textury(?) bits. (I think I've just added another word to my crafting dictionary :))

Thanks for visiting earlier, it's appreciated, especially as your time is so limited these days. The door hanger count is now at 5 ... it will take me longer to decorate them than it take for them to be made!

My niece, Louise, visited yesterday - her baby is 20 months old, totally adorable and running her mum ragged ... they are going through the toilet training stage, I'll say no more :)

Hope you have a great week and enjoy the last of your hubby's holiday. Elizabeth x #59
