Just a quickie post today to show you a new card I made, this one is for my MIL birthday coming up at the end of the month.  She doesn’t like a lot of bling or embellishment so I kept it pretty simple using only a few buttons.  I told you last week of my new love for all things Penny Black, well they also do stickers to and this card uses one of them from a sheet I bought at the same time as I bought the stamp used in the last post; looking at their website they have lots of lovely sticker sheets to choose from, some are truly outstanding and are great for card making.

The lovely heart sticker is mounted on cream and red card, and the hearts are covered in dimensional glaze giving a raised effect rather like those epoxy stickers you can buy.  The patterned paper is K & Co, the buttons are Rhonna Farrer and I printed the sentiment on the computer.  A striking but very simple little card.

Oh, and please think of me later today!!  I had some pretty bad toothache last week completely out of the blue, so toddled off to the dentist for a quick check.  I’ve had a crown for most of this year to try and put to bed my one “plagued me all my life” bad tooth, but it just won’t co-operate I’m afraid.  So at 4pm today, the crown has to be broken and removed and I will be on the receiving end of a root canal!  After that I will have another round of visits to fit and adjust a new crown.  So, I’ve not been a happy camper this weekend, laced up to the eyeballs with penicillin and pain killers.  I really hope this puts an end to it all.
