Today I had an appoint with a TMJ specialist. Damage can be seen in the xray, but to what extent he is unsure. So to start he gave me medrol, a steriod to help with the pain. And cyclobenzaprine to take at night to relax the muscle. I have to get more movement in order to have a new night guard molded. After that he will evaluate again for surgery. Which will mean a long wait for an MRI appointment so the surgen can see if there is enough cartledge left to repair. Here's hoping.
Enough of that. Lets get to the card.

So the last couple nights I have been working on a special card. I quite like how the white pencil crayon looks on the black card. I found a textured card in my stash and thought it could be used for the same technique.
Till next time.

Yesterday the first of my purchases from Wish arrived. A case to hold my set of prisma color pencils. I spent lastnight transfering them over.
Todays mail had the black case. Slightly smaller.
Well it looks like I must finally clear my desk to make room for scrapbook layouts. Hubbie asked today if I'd gone through the boxes of kids school work. I think the easiest way to do that is to scrapbook what I want as I go.

Really looking forward to the treats set. I can see some glitter being used. Well enjoy your weekend.

First up, Happy Canada Day!!!
Second, I came down to my work area this morning to clean it up and make room to lay out scrapbook pages. We are moving on to the next section of basement renos. Which means moving boxes again. Hubbie came across 4 boxes of the kids school stuff. You can imagine his comments. Doesn't think you need to keep everything. So it's time to get all their memories into their books.
But cleaning didn't get done. I found a new stamp set I had been messing with. So of course that took my attention. The scrapbooking will have to wait another day.

My card today was made for an associate that I work close with. Our Lead CSM is expecting. It's so exciting watching her belly grow. Remembering the birth of my kids. It has just been a short time since we found out she was leaving on mat leave. Thinking she was 5 months when she announced it at work to only find out a few days later that she was 7 months. So out came my crochet hook to get a sweater done before she left. Today was her last day. Taking two weeks holidays then into mat leave. I am going to miss her for the next year. We work so well together.
Megan has a little farm. Turkeys, chickens, and her baby porkchop the pig that lives in the house with them. So when I thought of making a card for her I pulled out my new set from 'lawn fawn', 'critters on the farm'.

The other day I whipped up a 'new home' card before heading into work. A co-worker has just moved into a new apartment. I wanted her to know I was thinking of her on her big moving adventure.
She was so touched by the card. Made me feel good to put a smile on her face. We will have coffee next week, so I can see her new place.

Well my son is very happy as well. I have finally finished his Mindcraft blanket that I gave to him two Christmases ago in pieces. I told him it was a 'build a blanket' he had to put it together. That didn't go over so well. So after working on it every now and them I have finally completed it. He was so happy yesterday, he sat on the couch all morning watching TV snuggled under his blanky.
And the big reveal.
The Loopy Stitch.
It's off to work. Going to be a busy day with the store being closed yesterday and again tomorrow. We gather tomorrow with hubbies side of the family. We only seem to meet up once a year at Easter. Looking forward to it. But not looking forward to dropping Sam back off at school afterwards.
happy Easter to all

This one I used the matching die to cut the image in the front of the card. Placing the card in my Misti I placed the stamp into the cutout area and stamped with black ink, so that the image is stamped on the inside of the card. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card front.
The purple pattern paper was embossed with Spellbinders Die D-Lites Create a Flower (which you can't see in the picture). I added sparkly ribbon that I found at the dollar store, and some dots of liquid pearls. The card front was added to a white card base.
Next cards in progress are Easter. Shopping at the Dollar Tree the other day I found some Easter stickers, glitter paper, and glitter ribbon. These will be used to make cards for our family since I didn't send off the Christmas cards. I still have the kids school pictures that have to be delivered before they are a year old.
