A Foxy Friend For Global Design Project!

Hi! I am popping in super quickly with my card for Global Design Project – it’s totally last minute! Mine and hubby’s plans for a new mattress and sofa took on epic proportions as we have trailed round so many stores looking at possible options, looking online for prices comparisons, beating down salesmen – you name it!

After 2 long days shopping, we have a mattress on order and the sofa is chosen, we are just waiting on fabric samples now to make a final decision on colour. Furniture is picked out, but we need to coordinate on all our deliveries so we can get time to paint the lounge before the new stuff arrives! Whew!

So, whilst I made my card, finding time to post it on the blog has been a struggle, but better late than never, right?


This week’s challenge at GDP was a theme of animals/pets! As I discussed in yesterday’s Facebook Live, this was a tricky subject for me as I’m not an animal person by nature. However, a couple of sets in my collection fitted the bill, and I went with Mr Foxy…

I incorporated a few elements from previous cards into this one – the leaf base for him to sit on, the cloud edge to the white panel using my Detailed Floral Edgelit – and I love Mr Foxy in Delightful Dijon!

I also wanted to bring you a quick public service announcement! At some point over the weekend (probably tomorrow night) the blog may go down for a short while. This is to allow for my lovely website lady to transition me from WordPress across to my new host provider. Moving to self-hosted wordpress will allow to do all kinds of things here on the blog that just haven’t been possible previously, and I can’t wait for the move! We’re not sure how long the blog will be down for it – it could be as little as 10 minutes, it could take as long as 24 hours. Please be assured though, that we’ll be back up and running as soon as possible, and sharing again as soon as.

I have no idea whether the move will affect bookmarks, RSS feeds or anything, so if you suddenly notice you haven’t had anything from me in a while, that may be why, and you’ll need to resubscribe – but hopefully all these things will stay the same.

I’ll post my Saturday Colour Inspiration on the Stamping With Val Facebook Page tomorrow instead of here, but hopefully normal service will resume on Monday.

See you on the other side,

Crafty Hugs, Val. XX

  1. Your little Dijon fox is sooo cute! I love your cloud detail. Such a clever idea to use that die! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us this week.
