First, I want to let you all know that I so appreciate your sweet emails and comments about my son. Ben was quite the trooper on Friday. We were at the hospital at 8:30 a.m. and he didn't get called back to the pre-op area until 1. As if dealing with a five year old is hard enough, try dealing with a super HUNGRY one! The poor guy wasn't able to eat and was getting tired.
Ben had a slow time waking up from the anesthesia--took about an hour in the recovery room but all in all he did just great. The poor guy had three root canals, five caps and one tooth pulled. YIPES! We didn't get home from the hospital until dinner time and he just collapsed again on the couch. But--I am happy to report that he is doing GREAT! Woohooo....he got to use his tooth fairy tin I made for him for the first time and we took some video of that. What a trooper he was. Thanks for all of your prayers and concern! I know they helped!
My husband and I were house hunting on Saturday and today so we are very exhausted from all the events of the weekend. We did find a few homes we liked and put an offer on one---fingers crossed that that goes well!
So.....THAT is why this is late. Sorry!
Here is a peek at Melanie's new set "Jumping for Joy!"for Gina K Designs. If you are like me, you just fell in love with all of Melanie's animal stamps--well, she has done it again. I cannot even pick my favorite in this set but I wanted to start off with the zebra.
This card also features some new zoo brads that Gina K will be carrying in her store. What a perfect accent for all those adorable animals!
I created my own background for this card by tearing pieces of white cardstock and then adhering them to the black to mimic the zebra's stripes. I used my easel design to attach the front of the card to the back using the oval punches. I thought the pink fringe would be an adorable accent to the card.
Here is another view of the adorable zebra. Notice that I curved the sentiment along the curve of the circle. Then I added the piercing holes to continue the flow.
