Life's Crazy Turns

Sorry that I really didn't post much last week...I knew it was going to be a busy week but I didn't expect everything to turn upside down on me! The short version of my painful story is that I ended up in the dentist's office three times (the last time was at a specialist who finally figured out the problem!) and the emergency room once because the pain in my face, neck and ear was unbearable...plus my husband was on a trip. I'm on medicine now and down to one pain killer a day (I am extremely thankful to be living in the time we do...how did people manage a hundred years ago or more?!) and my daughter was so kind and caring to me in my worst moments. There is always a rainbow in every storm!!

My son went to his third birthday party in one month, and since all the boys are from the same group, I really have to change up the card ideas! This Hang Loose set that is now retired from The Angel Company is always great for a tween card. Add a little embossing to the papers and you have the makes for a pretty "cool" card (which is important when you are 11). I had some shells in a can from when we were stationed in Monterey, California over 10 years and I thought they would balance out the card. I used BIC markers for the coloring and then went over them with some Prismacolored pencils and gamsol to give these surfboards a little more shading...

Chris,
I love the card! Way too "cool" for words and makes me want to say "dude"! :0) I hope you are feeling much better...I remember us talking about teeth the last time I was over there for the Hostess get together...they can be a pain sometimes! Just so glad you were able to find out what was going on and on your way to recovering! Take care and great card!
