It's my Mum's birthday today. Happy Happy Birthday Mum! I sure wish I was there to take you to lunch, I hope Dad does. I can just see him rolling his eyes. I love you very much! I'll buy you lunch when we come home for Courtney's wedding…deal?
So today was a crazy day. Eric had a crown fall off a while back and they put it back on, it came off again, and they put it on again and we made an appointment with an endodontist as the root canal needed to be redone. Eric's dentist said that there was not much tooth there so we might not be able to save it. I think the original crown was done when he had braces on so I don't think it was done super well. So anyway I called to make a doc appointment for me too since we would be in town. We went to the endodontist (I know I am not spelling it right) and they took an x-ray and checked it out and agreed that the tooth was not gonna be saved. So then I had to call an oral surgeon to have it taken out, their office was back towards the house. They were able to get us in today, so we headed back there, and they pulled it out, then we had to hurry back to town to get to my Doc. Poor Jeff he was the chauffeur today, and poor Eric with that tooth yanked out, we were quite the family. Jeff had the day off anyway, so shouldn't he spend it with his family?
When I got to my Doc he asked about my ocular migraine symptoms and I told him what was happening and he said that I was describing one to a T. He prescribed me Imitrex and he told me to take one right as they start and we will see if that helps. I hope they do, I mean I would love it if I never got one again and the pills would never be taken, I hate taking medicine but I am glad I got something to take now. I also hated the scale there as it was 2 1/2 pounds higher then the last time I weighed myself at home…crikey!
I don't think I have shown this card yet. It did not have my watermark on it, and that is usually my hint that a card has not been posted. If it is a repeat I apologize. This is another card from my demonstration at Convention.
Paper: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Watercolor paper, Love Letter DSP
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride
Misc: Crochet trim ribbon, scallop circle, piercing tool, marker for faux stitching, jewels in the pearls, 2 1/2" circle punch, sticky strip, perfect polka dots embossing folder
I got my card designed for my Founder's Circle swap. We don't have to swap but this is my first time and I totally want to do it all. I have to make 135. Yowza! So I got all my supplies ordered. I am using the new seam binding ribbon that is up and coming from the Holiday mini so I don't know if I have enough of that, cause well that involves math, so if I need to order more I have to wait till September 1. We can only pre-order a certain amount of the new items ahead of time. Ribbons and DSP are usually limited to three.
Please remember you only have until August 31 to order out of the Summer Mini. You can order from my on-line store 24-7.
Have a great Wednesday, and thank you so much for stopping in.

Was Jeff wearing his chauffeur hat?? If the Imitrex does not work – DON'T GET DISCOURAGED I had to try a number of things before I found one that worked. Is it Imitrex pills or nose spray – the nose spray is NASTY. Maxalt is what works best for me. I hope this solves the problem
Luv you lots – and I wanna come for lunch too when you take Mom out!!!

Crowns, pulling teeth, braces…Oh, My! I hate going to the dentist. I like my dentist, but hate to think I might have to have something done besides cleaning. Hope Eric feels okay today.
I am glad to hear you got something for your migraines. I don't get those and feel for those who do. They would not be fun. Hope you don't have another one, but glad you have relief (hopefully).
Love your card! Keep seeing the images you are playing with and they keep rising on my wish list. I wish I could just order all of them…hee hee!
Can't wait to see your Founder's Circle swap. I bet it is FANTASTIC!
Have a good one, Di!
Cute card. Ocular migraines – they are a b***h – used to get them, not so much anymore, though had to stop wearing my contacts. Just watch what you eat, no MSG, try to avoid caffeine, won't tell you to avoid chocolate – no way – can't do that!! Hope Eric doing okay with that tooth too! Take Care. Karen
OMG, Di — I was reading your post and "I'll buy you lunch when we come home for Courtney's wedding…" MY daughter's name is Courtney and she is getting married October 22!! Kinda funny, huh??

So glad you got some meds for your headaches! Love these kids and the card is awesome as usual. Off to have lunch with a few of my nursing buddies! Have a good day.

Glad that the Doc is prescribing Imitrex for you. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't work. You may need to take something similar (like Maxalt, which is the one I take; Imitrex was a no-go for me). Don't you just love that you have a husband who is so patient? That's the best part about my husband. More often than not, he's so supportive and patient. I just couldn't do without him. I'm really loving your Kids cards. I just wish I could color as beautifully as you do. In fact, a customer of mine was waffling on ordering them and when I showed her what you and Ilina had made, she went bonkers and ordered it. Thanks for the assist!

Love the card! Just received the stamp set myself…hope I can color mine half as well. I'm sorry to hear about your headaches, as a migraine sufferer for over forty years I can sympathize with you. Imitrex never worked for me once the headaches started but Zomig did. Just wanted you to know that there are other options out there, so don't be disheartened if the first meds tried don't work.
I have followed your blog for quite a while now and love your sense of humor. Please don't ever change. You are like a ray of sunshine.
