My Dt Projects for this week,

Hi everyone, Angie here today, profiling 12x12 papers,
the paper i have use, is a lovely sky, with butterflies and bees, its from , The Paper Company! i have made 3 things out of the one sheet! (lol) the first is a 4x4 card, , with dark blue card matted then the paper on top,  i cut out a butterfly, glossy accented it, then sprinkled glamour dust on it, whilst still wet, outlined the card with tim holtz`s broken china distress ink, all of the above can be purchased at the lovely Beths shop, Stamp`N`Craft, in yeovil.
the ribbon, sticky tape, and sentiment, are from my own stash!
i have also, made an envelope out of the same piece of paper,

the last item, i made, was from a re-cycled brad packet, i used the cardboard in the back, as a template, and glued the paper, from the same 12x12 i used for my card & envelope, filled the bubble with sweeties, hand drew the rainbow, & added the sentiment, (sending you a rainbow!) the diecut strip, the tag and ribbon, are from my own stash,
why not pop in to Stamp`N`Craft to see the huge selection of 12x12 papers Beth has,
thanks for looking, why don`t you leave me a comment, so i can see you`ve been,

mutterings of a crafter who can`t!!

I can`t believe its been 19 days since i last posted! i`m such a crappy blogger, i have`nt been crafting much either, i`ve nearly finished my ink caddy tutorial, so, thats good, its taken much longer than i thought!
i`m working part time now, and its nearly killing me! lol but i`m ever hopeful, that it`ll get easier, as i go along!
my mojo, has packed its bag and moved out! i  must, get into the habit of going into my craft room again, and perhaps my mojo will return! heres hoping!

Down, but not out!

Morning Blogland!
well, had a horrible day yesterday, but last night, i was really in the dumps, feeling miserable!
but today, is another day, and i feel better today!
yesterday, i was diagnosed as having Diabetics type 2, high blood pressure, (as well as i already have Asthma, and arthritis(my knees & wrists kill me)all self inflicted, by not looking after myself! and i have to lose 21/2 stone  in weight in the next 6 months (i have more to lose, but thats the start!) they have recommended i go on the GI diet! so, will have to get some books, (as internet, don`t give enough ideas, and a full GI index in foods!)
and then if that was`nt enough punishment for the day, last night, my local Tesco`s was having a Recruitment Drive, so, i duely turned upat 5.45, filled in the forms, and waited to be called, (there was about 50 people waiting,) the more people that arrived, the more i thought! no chance! they were all under 20, except about 3 of us! lol boy, did`nt i feel old! they eventually called my name after an hour, and took me out of the room, to tell me, sorry, you have`nt made the interview, but we will keep, your information, for future ref! yeah, right!
so, i went home, on the scrapheap!! lol
that was my day!! lol
but today, is a new day! and i`m not going to be beaten! (might be a bit bruised! lol) i will see if i can do some more to finish my Tutorial, as i bought some more batteries for my camera yesterday! (the highlight of my day! lol) so, it works again! yeah!! lol
hope i have`nt depressed you too much, i am going to watch some american crafting on Create&craft now! and cheer myself up!
have a lovely day,
love angie xx
