Welcome Little One

I don't want to say this.. but I'm really miserable today, actually.. even yesterday I was.. and you know why ... I can't find a whole set of stamps   : |   .. I even woke up very early today, couldn't sleep as still thinking of where they might be. I turned my craft room upside down to search for them, wasted so much time, had so many things planned and even my kids and hubby helped me when they saw me like this, but still nothing! I last used three from the set on Sunday for my penguin card and then yesterday, when I went to put them in their place, they're gone... I just couldn't find the rest of the set!!! 

I am really hoping they didn't end up in the trash by mistake... ... sniff sniff  

... but now enough of my bad mood... sorry if I bored you ..  

Onto my card now... I managed to stop moaning and did this to cheer me up. It's for a colleague of mine who is expecting her first baby this month. She didn't tell us if it's a boy or a girl, so I did a girl for now and will be doing a boy later on.. Don't want to leave it 'til the last minute.. as I always do..

For my card I used my Pink Gem Cutie Pie Stamp, which I coloured with my promarkers, the papers are from DCWV, and this is the sketch that I followed.

I am entering my card in these challenges today

They wouldn't be magnetic would they?? I say that because I had the same issue once, turned everywhere upside down and back again and almost gave up . . . . turned a metal container upside down (quite by accident) and found them . . . . stuck on the bottom!! DOH! Hope you find them soon.
Sweet card and such cute colours Dora.

Happy New Year

Oh I love baby cards, I love that image and I love your card:) Dora I lost a set of woj stamps a while back, like you woke in the night thinking they might be here or there. I emptied the outside bins 3 times. The third time my hubby helped and we found them, caught in some rubbish:) So don't give up and get out to those bins!!

Lovely card , the only way to find your stamps is to forget about them totally and then start looking for something else -they are sure to turn up then !

Hope your stamps turn up soon. Did the same a few weeks ago. They turned up in a file where I keep scrap paper!! Couldn't believe I had put them there in the first place!!

Oh Dora I do hope you will find the set, I did exactly the same last week, I had a set of clear stamps I went to use them and couldn't find them, I had all my stuff out I was under the table searching I looked everywhere, could I find them...No...I thought that I had thrown them out by mistake....a couple of days ago I look in one of my little storage boxes and what did I find..yep...the set of stamps and blown me down I had looked in there at least half a dozen times..I think I must be going a bit I am in love with this little beauty the colours are gorgeous and that image is just to cute I want to cuddle her I love it thank you so much for sharing this with us at both Aud Sentiments and Digital Tuesday this week.

brenda said...

Hi there Dora

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - well over 600 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

Have you entered my new candy

Cheryl said...

oh hun,we must be on the same wave length as I spent all,day yesterday looking for my lunch,and distressing,thingy and I too had used them the night before,and turned place upside down,and still nothing,then last night when i went to get the rest of my pencils out,there was my punch,and disressing,thingy,which I too thought I may have accidently put in the bin,so its always right what they say when you are not looking for them they just turn up so heres hoping hun,
sorry,hehe,your card is just amazing hun,the detail you always put onto your cards is sheer magic,
I just wanted to wish you and your family a happy new year,and to thank you for all your support love hugs cheryl xxxxxxxxx

I do hope you find your stamps. I lost a set of clear stamps before I even got to use them. Like you I couldn't sleep, turned my room upside down and back again and went thru the trash bit by bit several times. Six months later I pulled open my idea folder and there was my set of stamps. Good luck.
Blessings Bernie

Kathyk said...

I hope the stamp set turns up - that has happened to me before (if you saw my craft room you'd wonder why it didn't happen more often!) and it turned up when I least expected it...
