A Snippet of Missing Mojo

Hello crafters ... beneath the chaos and tip I'm living in at the moment
I managed to find a teensy bit of mojo to create a card inspired by the 
latest Muse Card Challenge by Joan Bardee. My immediate thought was to 
crack open a brand new stamp ... Bought a few weeks but so far not used!
Does that happen to you too? I seem to purchase much faster than I can stamp!!!

Anyway I've kept to the colour scheme of Joan's card and the foliage style also 
adding a twine bow. A bit different to Joan's placement but I'm thinking I can
enter this over at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday challenge where it's 
'Tie it up' this week!

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Fairytale Ending coloured
using Zig Clear Brush pens and glossy accents
Sentiments are miscellaneous Clearly Besotted ones - I think that 
have become separated from the original sets!

Here's Joan's Muse card ...

Thanks as always for calling by and I'll be back soon



  1. Gorgeous card Sarah, i love that stamp. And yes i too purchase a lot faster than i can stamp. LOL
    Especially since i'm not yet that long into stamping i like everything and so buy a lot, also things that other stampers who are stamping for years already have for a long time in their stash. So i buy new AND old stuff ha ha ha ha ha.
    Hugs Veerle

  2. Fab card again have you found the time to make it though???? Hope all goes well with the new kitchen, I gave in and got a new oven after months of nagging from my OH. I didn't want to bother seeing as we are hoping to move house soonish.It was looking bad after 17yrs though lol. Thanks for the good wishes and I am pleased you had a good birthday too ;) hugs Viv xx

  3. I love how you placed this and the touch of gloss, plus the bright green of the twine. I made a card for this yesterday but need to post yet!!
