You'll never guess what I have found now

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all well as you can be and that all mojos have made it back to where they belong...hugs
I had a wonderful day for my birthday yesterday. I went off to Breedon on the Hill and had my hair cut (a no appointment hairdresser at the garden centre) then it would have been rude not to pop into Annette's Crafty Corner and spend my birthday money, wouldn't it LOL. Among other things I bought a Cheery Lynn die and stocked up with white linen card, then came home and played in the craftroom. No cards made but I did do several toppers and not used my new die yet!
My title? Well, it's surprising what you find when you're not looking. I knew that some years back (more than 3) I have bought about a hundred A4 sheets of ivory linencard, which I put into an A4 plastic box. Now I have bookshelves filled with these boxes of card and yet I never could find that one, it had totally vanished. Well, when I wasn't looking, it reappeared because I found it on Thursday. Did somebody say where was it? Well, it was on the bookshelves of course LOL. I am sure that as soon as I leave the craftroom the gremlins come out to play!
Anyhow, onto my cards for today if you haven't nodded off already :o)




Just a few more from my 'finds', these will be the last of them for a while as I have a 12 card order to make next!

Tomorrow I am off on another adventure so I will tell you all about it later :o)

Hi Jackie. I am glad you had a good birthday.
Your cards are gorgeous. I love the designs and fabulous colours.
I know what you mean about finding things when you are not looking for them, I seem to do that a lot!
I hope you have a good Sunday

Hello me twinny happy belated birthday for yesterday, glad you have a good day and that you bought more crafty bits. I am with you regarding the gremlins I still have not found my scissors or my ink that went missing months ago no doubt they will turn up when the gremlins have finished with them lol. Your cards are gorgeous and lucky you getting a 12 card order. Have fun. Love Alison xx

Your birthday days appeared to be a great day... The kinda birthday I would be happy to have...good health, good treats and to play in my craft room. Your birthday is one week ahead of mine. A big Happy Birthday too you. I really need to get your snail mail address. Oh yes.. I LOVE locating things that seemed to have moved... Surely it wasn't me who had done that! My daffodils have taking a beating with the beautiful warm days and then the frigid temps at night. I wanted to send you a pic as a virtual birthday bouquet.

Belated birthday wishes - sounds like you had a fabulous day, and you're absolutely right, it would have been rude not to spend your birthday money :)

Great selection of cards - I do like the embossing on the trees.

Hi Jackie, belated Happy Birthday wishes! Isn't it FAB when we find things that we have lost?! And often we DO find them where we have relentlessly looked! It happens to be me alot. It's like they become invisible. Yes, it's the gremlins for sure!!

LOVE these gorgeous cards Jackie - so elegant and beautiful layouts. Love the mirri cardstock. I have some in my stash but never think to use it - will have to get it out and start playing (hopefully I can find it - unless the gremlins have hidden it of course!).
