Heres to you Doc!

I just wanted to thank the Dentist for taking me in to check my mouth. I fractured a tooth and my appointment wasn't until Thursday (today) when I broke it on Tuesday. The dentist was out of the office (playing golf) and dropped the clubs and came into work to fixit. To make a long story short it was the second time (his day off) that he resued me. so I made him this thank you card. It looks really flat her but trust me it is popped to the hilt. You know me and Pop dots. It came out very nice.

You go Girl!!!!

You go girl! I am so proud of you for Many reasons. Keeping up with the challenge for 12 days. Winning of course. Emily won one of the Challenges... Day 8 of the Anni-Verve-Sary challenge on SCS. I am also proud of you that we did a lot of it together .. Mother and Daughter..
I love the fact that she can come in my craft room and get to work. I really don't like her using the paper cutter so I do that for her. She has some really good ideas. Check her stuff out on SC she is Emesoda.

Ahhhhhh !!!

Well the challenge is over for Verve. I am impressed with my dgtr Emily who is 8 years old. ( Emesoda on Splitcoaststampers) Very awesome job she did. Check some of them out. Anyways. I now have to clean up my craft room... Looks like a cyclone hit it. Litterally. I was crazy today too. (broke a tooth so off to the dentist- who was not impressed and that is a whole saga of tooth out, flipper partial, healing time, implant) Yeah Can't wait for that bill. Yippy Skippy. A Very Looooong day. So I am finishing up some loose ends and off to bed. I have a long week ahead. I will post somemore stuff on thursday.
