Cherished 51

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, August 12, 2012 @ 9:10 PM |

Hi there! Hope you all had a great weekend! Ever get the feeling you're slowly falling apart with age? I sure feel that was lately. I have gained nearly 10 pounds since turning 40 and it seems as though my metabolism is slower that molasses going up a hill in January. So frustrating. I stupidly stubbed my baby toe and fractured it this weekend. Last week, I was eating a SOFT chicken Thai Larb salad and next thing I know, I was crunching on a chunk from one of my molars. Long story short, I am in the process of having a crown made for that tooth. Well, last night while enjoying a piece of Dove chocolate, the temporary crown popped right off! YIKES! I had to go to the grocery store at 11:00 pm to purchase a tube of Polident to stick it back on! The saga continues... While eating Indian Tika Masala tonight, the crown popped off and this time I crunched it right in half! Luckily, I have Monday off from work and hopefully the dentist can see me in the morning to mold another temporary until the permanent arrives on Wednesday! NEVER a dull moment around here!

I have a card to share that I made for a Vintage challenge on Splitcoaststampers using a few of my favorite products. 
The beautiful patterned paper is from the Pink Paislee London Market collection which by the way, I spotted on the shelves at Hobby Lobby last week! I made the cameo with a beautiful image and die from the Die-namics Vintage Cameo Die & Stamp Set. I added a rose made using a die from the Die-namics Mini Royal Roses and frosted it with a little glitter.
I hope you enjoy your day / evening! 
Be Sweet :)

P.S. ~ I'll be back Tuesday at Midnight Eastern with a fun project that I have been working on. Hope to see you then!

Such a gorgeous card, Mona!! I know what you mean by falling apart as we age. I had a crown put on one of my molars last winter, fortunately before it fell apart. So sorry about the temp coming off. I know you'll be glad to get the permanent one on Wednesday. ~ Blessings, Tracey
