Bad to WORSE!

It has literally gone from bad to worse from the moment I woke up. Although some good has come of it, I wish I had just stayed in bed.

Anywho, I came on to share a card with you all, but thought I'd have a moan at the same time too.
So last night I discovered that my printer won't print BLACK and WHITE when then COLOUR cartridge is empty. Absolute nightmare. So until I can afford, or.. justify spending almost £25 to buy a colour cartridge to print out my BLACK digis, I shall be using all of those digis I printed off and filed in a time of prosperity LMAO!! I guess those stamps and Memento won't come in wrong either.

Then, I sat down to finish off my last order for this month and BOOM, my Making Memories Slice machine won't turn on! I've had it on charge almost all day and it still isn't playing, so it can't be that it's dead. It must have something to do with the battery. Meh, I dunno. I feel like just selling the cartridges and being done with it! Bloody nightmare. So, the awesome plan I had in my head for the card, ain't happening. Not to worry, onwards. 

.. some of my FlexMarkers have been giving me jib. Some of the nibs are either all fluffy, even though they have plenty of ink in them, or they have chunks out of the tip, so I can't get a precision line like I'd like. 

.. oh, and to top it all off, I just realised I'm using up my last roll of DST. Yip. 

Best make the most of these cards boys and girls, because I don't know how much longer I can keep going with this crap! LMAO!

So I thought I'd share another Time for Tea Designs card with a new release for this month. So this is the fun Giant IceCream which is available from Etsy. I've coloured her up to match some papers from My Minds Eye. I've added some Glossy Accents to her sunglasses for a fun touch. I created my own little pinwheel from some yellow felt. The sentiments are from Whimsy and Amy R stamps. 

So after being in a fettle with myself for most of the day I decided to rip some stuff apart and get some things sold. I've sorted almost 100 DVD's and games for Music Magpie, and I've listed a few bits and bobs on eBay. Let's see how they go. I need money people!!

For anyone who doesn't follow me on FB I have decided to take the plunge and start the embalmers course I've wanted to do since leaving school.. and let me tell ya, it ain't cheap! Donations my way, please! LOL.

I feel a little better now I've got all that off my chest. If you've got this far, thank you for listening!!

Out. xo
