Down in the Mouth & a Little Honey

Thursday, 22 April 2010
Evening all, I hope you've had a lovely day. I wish I could say I had but I had to have emergency root canal treatment today so am feeling very sorry for myself and a bit sore!

Dentist is unsure what went wrong as I had a filling a few weeks ago (only my 3rd) but on the day of Jon's op, I started to get pain when I had something to drink. I hoped it would go away and saw him on Monday where he found out it wasn't filling but the outside of the tooth that was being sensitive. He put some paste on, hoping it would work but, just 8 hours later the pain was back. On seeing him today, he said the only thing he could was to remove the root so he started the process there and then. My jaw is now painful and I'm still a bit wary as the tooth feels funny, but I guess that's to be expected after all the work. I hope I'm okay tomorrow though as Jon and I are travelling down to Taunton for one of my very good friends wedding on Saturday.

Anyway, enough of my waffle. It was my mum's birthday on Monday so I'm a bit late showing the card I made her. My mum (and me) is a big Pooh Bear fan and when I saw this new Stampavie stamp by Penny Johnson I just knew it was perfect for her card. I got it from the lovely Tracy at Dies to Die For. It's out of the stock at the moment but I'm sure if you ask Tracy nicely she'll be able to get it back for you.

It's been coloured with copics and cut out with my circle and scalloped circle nestabilites. The CS is one again from Core'dinatons and the DP is from the Milton paper pack from Wild Rose Studios. I've added a strip of CS that has been punched with my MS Doily Lace punch. For the finishing touches, I have finally jumped on the Wild Orchid Crafts bandwagon and purchased some paper roses! I hope they look ok with this image.

Here's a close of this cute I Love Honey stamp.

I think I'm going to go to bed in a few minutes. Jon and I are both dosed up on painkillers so hopefully we'll sleep okay!
