Bling Batter Batter Bling

Well, my recovery process is still just barely crawling along. I cannot believe how much pain one mouth can have. It's like the dentists got together one day and decided to take a lifetime of wisdom tooth pain and wrap it all up into one week, so you get it over and done with all at once. I did attempt to make a card yesterday. After spending most of the day on the couch, I was inspired by the cute little card Beate sent me, so I made the trek up to my studio and attempted to be creative. This is the end result.

I used scraps and a little bling that were already on my desk. The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black. The paper is Basic Gray Infuse and is on an Always Artichoke card base and embossed with the Textile Cuttlebug folder. I used the Mega scalloped rectangle punch to mat the sentiment and my Fiskars scallop scissors for the Chocolate Chip mat behind the Infuse paper. To finish, I added a few rhinestones I got in the $1 bins at Michael's and a red organdy bow, with a rhinestone flower for the center. Simple and sweet.

I received this awesome card from Beate along with my Blueberry grosgrain ribbon booty from last week's Weekend Sketch Challenge raffle. I just think it's absolutely adorable how she made the lady bug from the petals and circles. What a rockin' stamper Beate is! She's so talented and one of the classiest people I've met blogging. Every card from her is a treasure. Thanks Beate!

    P.S. I know how you feel Julee... it has something to do with the the head. When I had surgery to remove a lump in my neck I felt GREAT the next day and was surprised at how speedy my recovery was. WEll, after 3 days I was laid up again in bed and in some SERIOUS pain. Too bad the pain meds didn't work on me.... Hope you feel like your old self sooner than later!

  12. Your card is lovely. So sorry you are having such a dreadful time recovering. Dentists are evil. Just kidding, but it's not fun, for sure.

    I can't believe Bingo is still going. I'm not home and haven't got my card with me, so I'm way behind.
