Spring Garden

Hi Everyone,
Thank you for popping by my blog, today it's a Design Team make for Die Cut Dreams, the theme being "Spring Garden Scene". And the prize is a Guest Design team spot, the rest of the lovely ladies on the team have made gorgeous creations, so do pop on over to take a look.

I'm spending the day with my Mum and Sister today, trying to get some sanity back after a bit of a weekend from hell. I'm picking my eldest son some new PJ's and a few bits up as he goes in hospital next Monday for an operation, sounds a bit gruesome and painful actually. He's having his Pallette dug away to have a contraption fitted with chains on it as he has two teeth growing backwards through the pallette. This has happend as he still has three baby teeth left in and he's fifteen, they will be taking the baby teeth away, two at the top, and the one at the bottom, the bottom one will come out, but they don't know what they will do as the adult tooth is laying side ways in his gum. After the op and the swelling has calmed down he'll have a special brace fitted to start turning and pulling the teeth into place. They say it will take about three years for this to all work. The sad thing is at the moment all his teeth are perfect, no fillings and all lovely and straight, but because of the baby teeth still being their, it has pushed the new adult teeth into the wrong place. Maybe our own dentist should have pulled the baby teeth before now.

Any way enough of that, my nerves will be all over the place this time next week. Life deals us some rubbish, but I suppose i'm a hell of a lot luckier then some.

A few challenges I would like to put this in for:-
1. A Spoonful Of Sugar - challenge 140 - Birthday Wishes
2. Paperplay Challenges - week 8 - Let's Get Sentimental
3. Sweet Stampin' - Oh So Girly
4. Incy Wincy - challenge # 83 - Spring is in the air

Stamps - Sarah Kay Elodie, Helz Cuppleditch, Dovecraft, Polkadoodles Butterfly,
Papers - Papermania Rose Garden,
Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks, Big 'N' Juicy,
Embellishments - ribbon, gems, book plate, brads, stickles, flowers,

Have a good week
Happy crafting

Beautiful card Tracy. Such a sweet image and the colours are gorgeous.

I hope your son recovers quickly from his operation, it does sound pretty awful! And I know you'll be on pins waiting for the op to be over with. But I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.
Big hugs
