Drama

You would of thought with all the drama of the Christmas Crackers that life may have returned to normal but then I decided to have a go with the Less is More Music challenge.
Now how could this simple card cause so much drama. I thought my Magnolia tree would look fabulous using the music stamp that had the words of a Christmas Carol behind it.
So first I looked in my two really useful boxes of stamps for it, can someone tell me why when you unpack stuff it never goes back the way it did and you end up with stuff that don't fit back in the box!
Maybe its with the other large background stamps that I have in tall chest of drawers in my craft room. First I have to move stuff thats in front of the lower drawers. By the time I had all of them out I realised that maybe I didn't have this stamp at all although I can see it so clearly in my head.
Oh yes eventually it dawned on me its not my stamp its my Sister's and although I've borrowed it in the past.
So I had to use a music embossing folder, sorry but its just not the way I imagined and I've remedy the fact I don't have a music back ground stamp!
Well I don't think this one will make top 3 but thanks LIM girls for picking my card the other week.

  10. I actually think it's BRILLIANT Debby! Even if you didn't have the stamp you wanted to use, in fact it made me laugh, as I've often hunted the house down looking for craft bits that I KNOW I've got, and then not found them until after the event, so it's good to know it's now just me who's a bit loopy!

  26. Oh yes, been there and done that! Turn the entire studio upside down only to realize, oh yes, I gave that away or I borrowed that! Still, even though it might not be what you originally envisioned, it's lovely!!

  27. This is a beautiful white on white card regardless of how you finally 'got there'. This is a great embossing folder. I know the feeling all too well, my craft space needs a serious tidy up, then I too will find my lost stamps! Happy Christmas. Love Sheila x
