Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner of the crafting world!
I hope your day is going well. Today is a much better day for me than the one I had yesterday! I had my first appointment (of many) to prepare my mouth for a dental implant. So, yesterday was not much fun. The implant is to replace a tooth that has had a root canal and crown for several years. I opted for numbing rather than being put to sleep because I hate the after effects of being put to sleep. The crown was removed first (not too bad), then it was time to pull the remaining tooth (yikes). The Doc told me that often times a tooth that has had a root canal will become brittle. So, when it is pulled, it shatters. Yep, that's what happened to me! Seems like he worked little pieces of my tooth out for hours, but it was really only a matter of minutes. Next came packing bone graft material into the cavity left by the roots. And he packed, and he packed, and he packed! Then, 3 stitches to hold everything in place, to be removed in 2 weeks. This has to heal for 4 months and we go onto to the next step...fun, fun, fun!
So...was your day better than mine? Well a day and a half later, I am feeling much better. My mouth is really sore and I will be eating soft foods for awhile, but that's ok. Hey, I've already lost 2 pounds on the "Dental Implant Diet"...lol! I feel so much better that I decided to do something I haven't done in awhile...enter a crafting challenge or two! I have spent several hours not feeling like doing much of anything but visiting blogs and seeing what everyone else was up to. During my visits I found a couple of challenges that I thought I would play along with....
Bitten By The Bug 2 - Kitchen Challenge
Exploring Cricut - Use a neglected cartridge
Lucky me, my card fits in beautifully with both of these challenges!
I love the way this card turned out, but it really does make me miss my coffee even more! No hot beverages for a few more days....sigh...
* The card base was created in "Cricut Craft Room" using the "From My Kitchen" cartridge (a cart that is very neglected in my craft room)
* I inked up the edges in Distress Ink "Broken China" and added Crystal Stickles to the white portions of the coffee pot
* Tag is from "Birthday Bash" page 69
* Sentiment - Pink By Design "Perk Up" stamp set
* I added some black twine and a punched flower to my tag
Ok, I'm off to link up my card! Thank you for stopping by and I'll be seeing you soon!
Until next time,
