DCMLE & Arty Girlz

Today's challenge on DCM is to make gift tags & Arty Girlz asks us to handcut something. So here are my handcut CI Angels on mini tags. The angels are stamped in Brilliance Rocket Red Gold & boy did I have fun trying to get a picture of these!! The tag tops are craft glitter sticks about 70p from Tesco. They are like tinsel but pipe cleaners so they twist together. Backgrounds are stamped in script & a snowflake free on the cover of this moths' Craft Stamper. Both overstamped in versamark sky blue with a snowflake.
I'm still not well & have been back to the doctors for yet another prescription. At least the chest infection has cleared, I just need to get my nose clear. I'm on a steroid nasal spray as nothing else appears to work. If I hang over one more bowl of steam I swear I'll fall in,I'm so tired. It is 10 weeks since this all began & the Pixie is determind to be rid of it for Xmas. Lets face it, I'm going to need a bank loan soon the cost of all this is phenomenal!!
Andrea tagged me today, 7 things about myself. Now I know I've done this several times before but I do think they are good as blog people never really know you do they! I won't be tagging anyone but if you read this & fancy a go, then go for it!
1) I only feel assertive when I wear my work suit.
2) I love my Slo Cooker & cooking for the freezer.
3) I never get done all the craft things I want to.
4) I'm learning how to say No, & making myself things.
5) If I could have anything right now, it would be a clear nose!
6) I think Kurt Cobain was the most beautiful creature ever born.
7) I love Home & Away & Neighbours.

These tags are lovely Paula. I've just got these CI stamps today and used one on my Gothic Arch. I love their stuff.

Glad you're feeling a bit better. I know exactly how you are feeling. I have small nasal cavities so have pretty much constant sinusitis. I take echinechea for a month on/month off which helps the immune system and I am afraid the steam does help but I use rosemary and eucalyptus oil in a facial sauna rather than a bowl. Hope this helps. LOL Lynn xx

Gorgeous tags Paula, I combined the 2 challenges. Those angel stamps are beautiful. I hope you manage to get your nose clear. My eldest son 's asthma is bad at the moment, looks like another trip to the doctors.

Gorgeous, glittery angels - the close up looks really fab. Thanks for you best wishes - yes I'm in the midst of my busiest week, but making the most of non-attended lesson to visit DCM tag contributions.

the tags are beautiful Paula. Sorry to hear you are still all bunged up, these bugs seem to take a while to shift! Echo what Lynn said about the essential oils in the steam, and they might help in an oil burner in the background as well.

Rosie said...

Gorgeous tags Paula - great idea to use the tinsel pipe cleaners (have stored that one for future reference!!) and I've just spent my Christmas money at C.I. I am so looking forward to unwrapping that lot!!
