Down To Earth With A Bang

Published December 5, 2011 by isisimaginings

This is the worst day I’ve had in a while. Physically, I feel awful & mentally, the “black dog” is refusing to shut up. All day I’ve been fighting the urge to scream, shout & throw things. The morning got off to a bad start when I looked out the kitchen window & saw yet another cat doing its business in my garden. I raced outside, screaming at the top of my voice, grabbing the hose as I went, but of course the cat took off. I’m going to buy the biggest water pistol I can find. I love animals, but why do I have to clean up after other peoples’?

After a few more disasters, I dropped the laptop on the floor. It’s still working, but the screen is hanging on by a thread. Then I clicked on Tim Holtz’s blog for tag #5 & I was well & truly stumped. The tag itself, that’s it, above, looks fairly simple, but the technique threw me completely. You can read about it here, see what you think. I’ve read the instructions again & there is a vague idea simmering below the surface, so maybe I’ll have a go tomorrow. I did manage to finish the project I started last night & I started a card for a January birthday, so at least I’ve achieved something.

Here’s a tag I made a few weeks ago, when I was trying out Tim’s Winter Collection distress inks. The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque‘s ‘Fat Robin’ collection. I can’t remember where the ‘Christmas Wishes’ stamp came from, maybe PaperMania. I used my white Signo pen to make the falling snow & then put Anita’s Snow Writer at the bottom of the trees. The flowers & leaf are from my stash.

I think the best thing I can do now is go to bed. Maybe I will feel better after a night’s sleep. I hope your week got off to a better start than mine. Until next time,

Love & light.
