Oct 15, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

This is an auction for a great cause! See my card (up close) for the donation—> HERE!

Several of the designers from MFT, donated a fully embellished card for this auction to continue to increase the efforts of raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness!

What a great gift that would make.

Check it out.

And pray for a good donation.

Speaking of which-check out  this post  for your chance to win a PINK box of goodies!

Some of which will include

The Think Pink set from MFT

K & Co embellishments in PINK

K & Co patterned paper in PINK……………… name a few.

drooling yet?

Well what are you waiting for?

toothache Sorry

Well if you are a regular reader you know that I have SERIOUS dental anxiety and problems since my first return to the dentist after 10 years!

I still havent heard about weather my insurance is going covering me (if even a little) to get some serious drugs when they pull my tooth I decided I will NOT do it otherwise! So I called them AGAIN……. still waiting-ridiculous!

Considering my problems I thought I would cheer myself up by making this card!

Its called “Sorry……….for your toothache”

CUTE huh?

Now if anyone has all their teeth pulled or some other sort of drama I have a card!

I thought a tooth fairy card would be a cute idea too. I Love the tooth wrapped with the bow!

The image in these two card is Docabella. See how she can be a nurse or dental assistant! LOL!

OK so now for the next card-

Today was a sad day cause the home nurse Alexa has had for the past  1 1/2 years was leaving the company.

I made her this card, and a gift baglet of strawberry creme “lifesavers” LOL!

nurse thanx

Sorry for the icky photo. I found out LAST minute it was her last day, and I whipped this up late last night.

The bottle of “pills” had a “prescription” on the front that says:

A. Kauppila

RX Many Thanx 2U

That is suppose to be like medical chat-:D

I felt the card was missing something and didnt get to take a great photo as I quickly snapped this just before she rang the bell. Its pretty “plain jane” I dont know.

No matter-she cried over it-so that was sweet. Ill miss her.

That leads me to things I learned…………..

I always try to learn new things and uncover stuff about myself. This was quite the learning week so I thought I’d share my findings

1) No matter WHAT I cannot do origami! I dont know WHAT it is but for the life of me I just cannot follow the directions-too much for me. I attempted to do one for our ornament blogger’s challenge and it was a disaster

2) Dental insurance SUCKS! Sorry if you are offeneded my that-but it does. How can you pay just as much as medical but still pay out a fourtune! And why cant they ever call you back?

3) I do not stamp well at night! While Im a night person I cannot get too crafty at night. I dotn know what it is, but a item that would normally come together smoothly during the day-goes SLOWLY and is more difficult for me at night-despite the fact that I am a night person! My most creative time is between 9am and 3 pm

4) I dont think Im going to like Alexa’s new home nurse! She was very COLD and snooty-not cool. Im sure you will hear about her in the future. To be continued……

5) DO NOT DRINK WINE-I had a hangover for 2 days over 2 whopping glasses! I wasn’t trashed or anything but it hit me hard.

6) If it looks like anything edible get it out of your yard! Dont wait for your kid to eat. AND dont give them too much credit and assume they WONT!

7) Dont limit my self mentally and say “I cant do that!” I found that I should at least try it first (see #1 then say CANT if I fail). I never thought I would be able to use a digi kit! And I did! I will say I was shocked to see you can LAYER and change the color-I CANT do that YET! I hope to learn. But my first priority is stamping!

8) Getting the kids Christmas photos done in early October is a must do from now on! They shoot went great, and I am working on Christmas card designs! I plan on completing them by November first!!! I want shopping done by Thanksgiving!

9) If you spill coffee in the driver’s seat of the NEW car, and you husband thinks it was the kids-DONT fess up!

10) Dont be so hard on myself. I had a stamp-related incident and I beat myself up over it. I’m talkin so upset I lost sleep over it! STUPID. Why do that to myself? Im in this for ME and fun-I have to keep it that way. I need to put myself out there and just be happy with whatever I do! Dont put such a high expectation on myself. Its not worth it. If I dont get something handstamped made for every person on the planet then its OK!!!

a little bonus- I DONT need to get a new package of happy mail every week and shop like crazy to be happy!


I’d love to hear some of your lessons your learned about yourself/life this week!

Share here!

Oh yeah ONE more big thing for me-I learned how to post a entry and have it post at a later date/time! Now to me that is way cool! Im bouncin up and down over that one 😀

What a time saver.
