What a Day !!!!!

Morning folks....well not a lot to share today...yesterday turned into a bit of a disaster but good old First Scotrail didn't let me down...tickets for Glasgow arrived at 7.00am this morning....just need to put them in a safe place now....well that is a safe place that I will remember and I got all my paperwork and computer stuff done and dusted...here was me thinking I was on a roll now...will get my DT stuff for this week in the bag in record time BUT that is where it all went pear shaped...would you believe that Mr Mojo has decided to take off again...goodness knows where and don't know when the blighter will be back...let's not panic I thought...forget about the DT stuff until tomorrow and make a Christmas Card or two...well even that was a complete disaster...had lots of ideas in my head but blimey could I transfer them to a card...card after card ended up in the bin...eventually I did end up with one but not entirely happy with it...it needs something and to be honest right this minute..I couldn't even hazard a guess at what...if my life depended on it...will leave it lying for a few days and maybe one of those magic moments will happen but come what may it will be added to the festive pile.
Paper: Making Memories...Mistletoe Collection
Image....Papermania Stamp Duos....Poinsettia
Sentiment: Hero Arts...Jolly Circle
Gold Self Adhesive Gems

"The Budster" and I are about to set out on our search and rescue duties...fingers crossed we find the runaway and normal service is resumed at the cubbyhole...catch up with you all tomorrow for Sneeky Peek Thursday hopefully.
Oops nearly forgot I have some questions to answer......
Debby asked about using the Sizzix Texturz plates in the Cuttlebug...now numptie here can't find the YouTube video that I watched but I did manage to find something just as good HERE. To use the plates with your Cuttlebug you do need the Sizzix Impressions Pad and a silicone rubber mat and they recommend that you use card shims to get a good impression...I used 2 sheets of 300gsm cardstock and it worked perfectly.
Steph asked where I buy my Martha Stewart Punches...one I bought from the Martha Stewart website and that is a whole other story which I'm sure Dawny P and I will never forget but that's getting off the point.
The others I got from my local crafty shop....Simply Create but they don't have a website...I had a little browse...DIES TO DIE FOR and CRAFTS U LOVE are two that I found but if anyone knows anywhere else...eave a comment here or send me an e-mail and I will pass the info onto Steph....I know you won't let us down...all you super duper crafter shoppers out there.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

Thanks for the info, Dies to Die For is looking good so far, I found a few on a well known auction site last night but mostly in the states, lets just say "once bitten twice shy" on that one!! I have in the past ended up paying more in customs charges than I actually spent on goodies!
I think your poinsettia card is fab, in my opinion doesn't need anything else, my partners favourite saying to me is "less is more" I have a tendendancy to over egg the pudding!

Liza said...

Another gorgeous card Kath. The glitter pot also have a range of MS border punches and a few of the other ones too.

Desire Fourie said...

Oh this truly beautiful. I still would like to cardlift some of your ideas, if you don't mind, but I will give all recognition just to you.

Yep I'm with Steph your card looks fine to me too! Don't you hate it though when you know you've things you have to do and MOJO goes walk about!!!! Sure you'll find it soon. x

Angelo said...

I love your card!! It's perfect as it is.
I wonder what I will do in the mornings when you are in Glasgow, what will I read when I sit down to have my cuppa if you are away and not blogging??? Will I survive not reading about Buddy and the cubbyhole and seeing your beautiful cards??!!!

Have a great day, Kath, and thanks for sharing!

Kristin :)

Hi Kath
I think the poinsettia card is great, if that is what you can do when Mr Mojo is missing you must make some wonderful cards when he's around :-)

Well it sure doesn't look like your Mojo has left town. Love thsi card and those wee stamps are fab value for money. Cuddly Buddly also sell MS punches. Have a super day. Not going to SECC this time :(

Sally said...

I love your card. I don't think it needs anything. The flowers really pop and to add anything more would take away from it.

pinky said...

Oh I hate days like that!!! But your card has come out lovely. Just take a deep breath and when you get back mojo will be back in order.

Your card is beautiful and you're very talented! I am now a stalker! I might have to ask you and Dawny about the purchase from the MS web site as I'm waiting on my first ever purhcase from them. And I've been waiting for some time. :) As far as another place to purchase, you can always go to Nikki at
http://www.bunnyzoescrafts.com/
She's got lots to choose from right now. Hope that helps!

Christine (Craftling) said...

Hi, Kath.. Well, I agree with everyone.. It's a great card just as it is, but you know me.. Nothing's complete without a rose on it! lol ;o) Just kidding! If you really feel it must have something else, how about a few cheeky holly leaves poking out from behind the poinsettias?

Hugs,
Chris xx

Tonje said...
