Distressed at Crafts and Me

Hiya Peeps,

Well I'm frustrated.  I wrote this post last night, did all the links and it didn't go live, in fact when I checked it didn't exist, grrrrrrrrr. Been another long night, I did venture to the gym straight from work, so well done me. I then walked from the gym to Sainsburys which is only about a 7 minutes walk, to get some coke but they had buy one get one free, so I ended up with 4 lots of 8 cans and a couple of other bits.  It was at the point of leaving the shop that I wished I had driven, lol.  So an hour's session and two dead weights followed by my gym bag over my shoulder and handbag, ummmmmmmm, definitely punishment.  Then I had to pop by my Mum's who is misbehaving for the Carers and whilst there I get a call from my Daughter who was scrapping with my Son over Chips!  Seriously, is this my life, lol.........

Well what I should of posted yesterday is my DT card for Crafts and Me and it was my turn to chose the theme and I have gone with "Distressing".  So however you interpret be it inking edges, tearing paper, adding paint etc. etc. you get the gist.

I have used one of Crafts and Me new images which will be released any day, as soon as Teresa gets her internet working, lol.  She is called "Emerald Fairy".

And from another angle.

And another .......

Hope you'll hop on over and join us Rubber Girls!
