Good morning

I hope you are all well this Sunday morning......I had a traumatic time yesterday during the making of the card below, I REALLY do need to go into rehab!!!

A couple of weeks ago I bought some bargin ribbons, yard upon yard for only 60 pence a mixed bag, well, I stroked them, looked at them every day and even sent a few yards to a few friends!
Yesterday, I could not find them anywhere!! the shock.... I searched every box, drawer, my quilt, my Christmas stash.... and nothing... I felt sick, dizzy, ill, light-headed....did not sleep properly.......All this and I have at least 500 ribbons wrapped and colour co-ordinated in my stash!!!
Anyway.... this morning I found them !!!! I went to get the hoover and there between the wall and the drawers were my ribbons, they must have fallen from the top of my boxes and slipped out of sight!! Thank goodness I some-times clean up hehehehehe........

On to my card as I'm sure you have better things to do....

Paper is K & Co Hopscotch
Sketch is from Creative inspirations
Cute Hangler image
Coloured with promarkers
Punched flowers and Leaves (made with the brown paper from my parcel)

Isnt it funny that regardless of how many goodies we have in our stash, that once we decide on one particular item, nothing else will do until its found! lol. At least you found them. My room is so bad that the cat broke in to my room (she's not allowed in the Craft Room) and when my Scrubby heard the door opening he knew straight away it was here and went in to get her. Well.....he couldnt find her!!! My room is teeny! So thats how messy my room is right now. In fact I think Nimbus got a bit lost and panicky as she started Meowing as if to say "Follow my'll find me eventually". There she was peeking out from a pile of empty boxes in the corner that "I might need" someday! I think she was relieved to be taken out of the room!! Gorgeous card Tilly, lovely summery colours. If only the weather would catch on! Lee x

Hi Tilly,

We have all been there, it's amazing how things you want disappear, I am trying to find my laminating sheets I know I have some but they have disappeared and I wanted to laminate a couple of patterns before they completely disappear into bits.

Lovely card, lovely image and brilliant colours, nice to see something bright and cheerful

Beautiful card Tilly, I like the sweet hangler image, the papers and of course the ribbon, I have a habit of putting things in a safe place, and then cant remember where the safe place is lol.

Kezzy said...

Wow loving your card, so bright and full of spring colours, and the image is gorgeous and I love the all the glitter. How awful it must have been to loose some stash, I once lost 2 cards I had done in advance for birthdays, I searched my craft room so many times, had boxes out and in the end after 3 days I gave up. Last week they turned up in the middle of some card stock after 5 months!!! lol. Thank you for joining us at That Craft Place Challenge Blog :-) Kezzy x
