A Birthday and Blog Candy...

Today is my dear MIL's birthday........(Happy Birthday!) So I created a card for her using SU! From the Garden, set. I stamped it in two colors and used clear embossing powder to "set" it. I decided to make the image more visually interesting by cutting the image into panels, setting them apart a bit, and mounting them on black paper. It really makes the image pop! The image was mounted on Basic Grey and SU! papers. The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. I used my Spellbinders to cut it out. To dress it up a bit, I threaded a pretty organdy ribbon through my sentiment and tied a bow. I added a PT Ink button tied with twine. As a final touch I added a Maya Road stick pin.

............. a little close up....... : )

I survived our outdoor field trip yesterday! We didn't lose any kids.......so that's always a good thing! LOL! I had to go to the dentist yesterday since my tooth had been hurting for the past 2 weeks. The pain was actually radiating down into my jaw and neck. X-rays were taken.....and everything looked fine. The dentist thinks the pain is due to the fact that my gums are receding (from too many years of rough brushing) and my dentin is showing. So she "painted" some flouride varnish right at the gum line. (Which made me jump out of my skin.....talk about sensitivity!!!OUCH!) This stuff hardens and lasts from 6 mos- to 1 year. This morning it does feel A LOT better! So hopefully, that's all it was.
Don't forget tonight is the night for my blog candy drawing! If you haven't put your name in yet.....go HERE for your chance to win!

Beautiful card, Michele! Hope your MIL has a wonderful day!

Sorry about the dentist--it's never pain-free there, is it? I'm glad your problem wasn't a worse one and that you're feeling better today.

Glad your tooth is feeling much better though!
