Winter Stanley - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

I'm here with my DT card for DigiStamp Boutique, using a very cute image from the new Winter Stanley set.


A super simple one... I just cut a circle aperture and popped Stanley behind it.  The snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch, but I can't find a link for it.

So... we live at the top of a cul-de-sac... Every day I reverse down the road until I can turn round, several times a day usually, without any problems.  So, why is it, whenever there are workmen on our road (today, for example), they feel the need to stand behind my car 'helping' me to reverse?  What do they think I do when they're not there?  T'is a mystery!

Hope you have a lovely evening :o)

I am having a little giggle at your story...
I must say that whenever I am in England, I find the men to be very polite and helpful. More attentive to others needs...especially women.

I live in Canada, and we do not see that same level of courteousness unless you are in a small town. I think it is refreshing and wish it was seen more, where I live!

I do understnad how you feel though...it is was strictly because they thought a women could not manage backing up!!!

Your card is great. Love that little fellow...he is a sweetie! Great design, as always!

In my opinion men are a "mystery" full stop!! xx

Lovely card Lisa. He's a sweetie and coloured to perfection. The workmen made me laugh. Maybe you could lean out the window and ask them if they might be there in an hour when you return, to 'help' you again! I think Sarah had it spot on, men are a mystery full stop!

Stanley is very cute and your colouring of him is fantastic. The aperture is a great idea, I'll have to try it. Love it!
I get it too when reverse parking which I'm good at. What I really find annoying is when they feel I need help steering my power chair but I always smile sweetly and tell them I can drive a large MPV quite easily so this is doddle Thank You! Also my hubby has just retired from being a driving instructor so I have to drive well, lol. Debra x

Jane Savage said...

So adorable, Lisa! Just love the texture you’ve achieved on the fur hat! I think workmen are a bit of a mystery all round really. Trying to figure them out could drive you mad!!! :) xx
