Teddy Bear


Well i had to go to the dentist yesterday, as the white filling in my tooth fell out again, they have decided i should have an inlay (as the tooth next to it, was removed and it will continue to fall out) at a cost of £209 and this morning the temporary filling fell out, so i'll be going back later today to get another one added !!!

I'm really sorry to all my wonderful followers for the following, but i'm really quite upset and hurt that someone has done this.
For some bizarre reason this blog has ended up on a 'Make Money With Your Blog' - I would just like to put the fact straight, as i can't seem to be able to contact the author of the blog - I DO NOT AND HAVE NEVER BEEN INTERESTED IN MAKING MONEY FROM MY BLOG, I MAKE MY CARDS AS A HOBBY AND SEND THEM TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND A CHARITY THAT SENDS CARDS OUT TO OUR TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN SO THEY ARE ABLE TO SEND THEM HOME TO THEIR FAMILIES - SO PLEASE DO NOT RECOMMEND MY BLOG IN FUTURE, THANK YOU.

I found today's image in a box of ones, that i have been kindly sent over the years and after much searching found out it is 'Teddy Bear' by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie, the papers and ribbon round the image are Dovecraft - 'Merry Magic', the other ribbon is DCWV - 'Sports Adhesive Ribbon' and the square gems are Papermania - 'Mosaics', the blue card has been embossed with CB - 'Ice Crystals'.

Today's Card And Challenges Are :

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Bears'

Crafty Hazelnuts - where Challenge No: 114 is 'Ribbons, Ribbons, Ribbons'

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'It's All Embossing'

The Ribbon Girls - where March's Challenge is 'To Add Ribbon Or Twine'

52 Christmas Card Throwdown  - where Sketch No: 15 is just what i was looking for.

ABC Christmas - where E is for 'Eyes Down Bingo' and i have gone for Ribbon, Animals, Die Cuts

Image - Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie - 'Teddy Bear'
Papers And Pale Blue Ribbon - Dovecraft - 'Merry Magic'
Embossed Blue Card - CB - 'Ice Crystals'
Blue Ribbon with stitching - DCWV - 'Sports Adhesive Ribbon'
Blue Square Gems - Papermania - 'Mosaics'

Oh Sam this must have been so upsetting. I had a very strange thing happen to my blog yesterday too - hopefully it's all sorted now though - but I did notice that I had a blog on my reading list that I was supposed to have joined - but I know for a fact that I hadn't - how bizarre is that?
Anyways onto your fabulous card - such a sweet image - love the LO and gorgeous DP's.
Enjoy the rest of the day - sorry to hear about the 'tooth' problem - ouch to the tooth and the purse!!!
Take care hun
Debs xx

Sounds a familiar story with the tooth Sam, but if it's any consolation I had an inlay a few months back and it worked a treat.

Sounds upsetting what happened with your blog, there certainly are some odd happenings at times.

Lovely card btw.

Janice said...

A very sweet card Sam but not such a sweet tale! Bad luck with your blog - how can you tell it was linked? Also extreme bad luck with your nashers - they are so expensive to fix these days! Think you should encourage Harrison to become a dentist! Jx

I'm sorry about your blog problems and your tooth! I hope it all gets fixed soon.

Patricia Hays said...

ARGH - I had a comment all prepared, but it apparently got lost in cyberspace when Google insisted I log in again. So I apologize if this one is redundant!
I think the teddy bear image is super cute, and I like how the designer paper and the embossing coordinate with the large present in the image. Thanks for sharing your card in this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge.
I am sorry about your blog problems and your tooth problems, and I hope they are all fixed soon.
