Thank You CardYou are so kind Card Sketch is designed for the card sketch this week at i Love Card Sketches.

The background for the large butterfly is triple-stamped and then cut out with the large butterfly framelit.  The Pacific Point front of the butterfly is cut with the large butterfly thinlit and then layered over the background.  I added the rhinestones for the body, but I am missing the antennae.

I made the card a week or so ago and just found the tiny antennae stamp on my floor just a few days ago.  I found it while I was looking for another small photopolymer stamp that had gone missing.

The question is:  How do you keep track of those tiny stamps, especially the photopolymer stamps that are so nice and clear?  I am trying to train myself to immediately clean my photopolymer stamps to avoid as much staining as possible, but I don’t always put them away until later.  That has led to missing images on more than one occasion.  More training is needed because these older eyes have a really hard time finding things that fall to the floor.  My worse fear is that they will end up in the trash.  Any suggestions for me?

OK – so clean immediately and then store back in the case immediately.  That seems such a simple answer, but when I’m on a roll with creating, I hate to stop for such mundane things.  C’est la vie.
