Ribbon-topped Recipe

OK, so I've just spent half an hour searching for some welded and matted-up words I'd just made for a CJ page. Two words went missing, how can that be? I've not moved from my desk in the meantime. I tidied the desk, I checked the bin. I went and made the workmen a cup of tea hoping the words would miraculously reappear while I was gone.

They didn't.
So I had to cut some more.
Fortunately I hadn't closed up the Robo doc so they were still there in the right sizes.
Unfortunately
I'd used the last piece of the blue paper to make them.
hmmm, ok, I'm using green on this LO aswell so I'll cut them in green.

I set the robo away - twice as this card is a bit thicker. I take out the carrier sheet and can feel something stuck on the back of it. Yep, the two missing words had somehow got stuck on the shiny back of the carrier sheet. Don't know whether to laugh or cry!

Here's my card for todays Daring Cardmakers Little Extra
it's a Recipe today, and the ingredients are:

4 brads/eyelets
3 circles
2 rectangles
lashings of ribbon for garnishing...

Paper is by Adornit that and the snowflake vards are from Bubbly Funk
And the gorgeous glittery ribbon is from our fabulous sponsor this week Ribbon Oasis

Sounds like exactly the sort of thing I do Kathy - did you go for blue or green int he end then?!

I like the card - those little circles threaded on the ribbon are a nice touch.

I'll take note, Kathy, and always check the back of the backing if something goes missing. Poor you - it's so annoying when things go awol like that. Gorgeous card.

This is gorgeous Kathy, beautiful stylish colours and I love the effect of the text tag. How familiar your loosing things story is, only yesterday I lost a whole BasicGrey collection pack I knew I hadn't used!

Beautiful card Kathy, I love the pastel shades and that ribbon is dreamy, that will be on my shopping list next time I am at RO.

Sorry to hear of your Robo mishap, how frustrating! It always amazes me how bits of paper move about on their own mid-project!

Gorgeous card Kathy. I know how you feel about paper sticking onto your robo - I don't have a robo but I'm always losing bits of paper that end up being stuck to dies etc.
