Humphrey holds the key to my heart

Good evening folks, here I am back again with another sneak for you ahead of the launch of brand new Humphrey and SWALK stamps. After much debate on the Crafter’s Companion Facebook Page it has been  ‘decided’ that I should share a Humphrey sneak peek with you all (isn’t that right Karen, rofl).


I love this stamp and was really pleased because I almost managed to achieve pleats on Humphrey’s mummy’s dress ….. it really doesn’t take much to make me happy does it!!

I was then really frustrated!!! I had the hairbrained idea of a heart and key charm for this card at almost midnight so I dug them out and started to attach them. Anyway, I dropped the key on the floor. I searchd for about 15 minutes (no word of a lie) but could I find it …. could I thump! I was muttering some right old words under my breath I can tell you. I had the brush out and had a sweep … just incase I was totally missing it, but no – it had vanished (and still has may I add). So …. got my charms back out and found another key but would you believe it – I dropped this one too whilst trying to attach it!!!! I cannot tell you what I said but it was a bit rude and not fitting for a lady! Thankfully, this one turned up under the printer of all places after a 5 minute hunt!! 

So I am a clumsy girl, losing 2 keys to my heart – I really do not deserve any love at all …. sob!

Enough waffle – I did threaten Karen with the woes of my tale and I always keep my promises, hahahahaha.


I just had a funny thought about this stamp but some things are best kept private lol. Needless to say I love it, as I do all of them. You can grab them tomorrow on the Crafter’s Companion website.

Hi Marcea, love this sweet card. I just bought my first Humphrey stamp but haven't inked it up yet. Am very curious how you like these markers. My favourite shop here in the Netherlands is getting them and the're so cheap compared to Copics and Promarkers. So do tell hun, do they work ok? And have you used them in combination with Copics and/of Promarkers?? Hugs, Frea

Ah ha a fellow crafter with Dropsy! I do that all the time. I spend my life looking for runaway brads/gems and hidden treasures that are safely hidden but only from ME!

Your creation is gorgeous, beautifully coloured.

Thanks for joining us at The ABC Zoo Challenge.

Boy can I relate to dropping things and losing them. I too have a horrible case of droppies! I wish there was a cure for it. LOL

Your card is awesome and I love the pleats in her dress.

Thanks for joining us at Creative Card Crew.
