Hello peeps! I'm a tad sad today..I've lost my best scissors!
They belong to my Mum and I've had for 11 years. Even had my large paper bin out all over the garage, think they must have gone with the last disposal.  Strange how you tend to look in places that you know they can't possibly be.

Another  rubber stamp again today. This is from the House Mouse Happy Day Stamps.
Coloured with Copics..  Magnolia fence, 'Signature' by Joanna Sheen bunting and C.C.Designs Toadstools.  I've used the little stars from the bunting to decorate the cake, saves them falling onto the floor lol. Computer sentiment edged with Distress Ink dusty concord.

Such a shame you lost your scissors Chrissy, especially as they belonged to your Mum, hopefully they will turn up somewhere strange when you're not looking for them (probably after you've replaced them with a new pair!!!)
Love this pretty card with those supercute mousies! Lovely colours and great layout, the added die cuts are perfect...those sweet little toadstools...clever way to use the little stars too, they look just like cake sprinkles!

Really super image, so cute and great background papers with lovely dies too, a really great card.
Shame about the scissors, they may yet turn up in the most stupid place and you will be thinking "how did they get there"

Oh no to the lost scissors! I'm sure you've torn your house apart. I'm going to hope that they'll turn up. In a drawer or someplace you'll say, "I remember now"!

Cute card. Love the layers and the banner. It's also a great little fence, too. So cute. Thank you for joining us at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge. {Bunny} Designer for House Mouse and Friends

So sorry to read about your scissors, especially with their sentimental value. I've lost count of the amount of dies and stamps that I've found in my bin and I would have been gutted to have lost them, so I can't begin to know how you must feel. Your card is so sweet and you've co-ordinated the image and background papers beautifully. Thank you for joining us in our 'Favourite Stamps' challenge at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x

Your card is adorable and you created a wonderful design for those sweet little critters. I hope your scissors turn up. I spend a lot of time looking for things like that. Sometimes they turn up and I hope your scissors will magically appear for you.

What a shame about the scissors. I recently lost a $27. stamp set, and the remote for the TV in my stamp room. I'm still hoping to find them one day, and I hope the same reunion happens with you and your Mum's scissors.

What a darling card. Cute scene you have created and love all your additional details. Thanks for sharing your card with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

p.s I meant to add, I hope your scissors turn up. XX
Similar things have happened to me and they they just appear like magic! I had lost my car keys (the only set I had) for months and had to order a new set, not easy as I was living in Malta and had to send my Dad to Leeds to the car dealer, anyways, they turned up in the handbag I used every day!!!!!
so hope your scissors find their way home xx ;-)

What a cute and lovely card! I love all the added embellishments. I hope you find you scissors. I lost a small stamp for a year before I found it in a very odd place! Thanks for joining the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge. xx
