Well hello Heffy Doodlers! And welcome to Heffy Doodle’s Release 2 Blog Hop. Can I get a “Hoot, hoot?!” This is such an exciting day for the Heffy Doodle family and a dream come true for the people behind this awesome family-run business which has made it this far thanks to your love and support. We love you guys and we LOVE seeing what you create with the products we so enjoy bringing you!
Now, time for some crafty fun! In today’s card I used two awesome stamp sets from Heffy Doodle’s Release 2: “Geology Rocks“, a super original set like no other one out there, and “Jet Alphabetters“, which is perfect for spelling out personalised sentiments.
Now, since I know you all love Lesley’s card stories, here’s the story behind my card! Although you may have never guessed it from my name, I grew up in Mexico – right next to an active volcano called the “Popocatépetl“. As I child, when leaving my house for school, it wasn’t uncommon to see the top of our volcano peeping out through the clouds. At times it was nothing but a snowy-topped mountain, but every now and then it would get excited and the ashes from its eruptions would reach us where I lived.
A few years back I moved to Europe and married a native English-speaker. When I first took him back home, I proudly pointed out the Popocatépetl to him (not that he could have missed the darn big thing!) and challenged him to repeat the name. To my surprise, he got it right the first time and spent the rest of our time in Mexico showing off about it.
When I asked him how on Earth he could have possibly gotten the name right from the start and managed to remember it, he said: “Easy: it’s called the “Pop-A-Kettle-On!”
