That's what I am tonight.
I stamped, I stamped again.  I paper-pieced and fussy cut.  I used several different dps and glitter papers.  I colored with my Copics.  I layered and layered my card base and mounted my image on cs.  I die cut and die cut and die cut.  After putting all the base pieces together, I went to add my main Pure Innocence image for the MFT challenge, and guess what?  I couldn't find it.  
Now, I never left the room, so it IS here somewhere.   My room isn't that messy, but I spent an hour looking for the image.  I looked in drawers, on the floor, cleaned my desk, checked my paper files/drawers, the trash can.  You name it, I looked.  I still can't find it.  So I have made another card to post tonight and hopefully the image will appear in the next few days...

So tonight I am joining the challenge at CAS - Colours and Sketches.  I don't think I have played there before, so it is nice to find a sketch there and join in.

This is a great quote from John Lennon put into a stamp by Paula Best.
I used KaiserCraft Lilac Avenue dp and DCWV cs.  Ribbon is from SU! and I added Swarovskis to the image which is stamped with Versafine Imperial Purple.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday - anything goes, inspirational saying
Loves Rubber Stamps - sentiment on the front
Just Inspirational - must use flowers (image ok)

Thanks for stopping by.
Wish me luck in locating my lost PI girl!

    Wishing you good luck on finding your image.It happend to me too before,and it drove me nuts.I found it like 4 month later,after i completly forgat about it! ;)

  2. For someone who didn't set out for this to be their main card...I don't believe it. This is a beautiful card and the stamp completely mimics ( or marries) the patterned paper. It all comes together perfectly! I love I do the colors...
