Thank You Card

I needed to make a special Thank You card and couldn't decide on a Sweet pea Stamp or a Crafty Purple Frog image so went for both and created a concertina card with 5 Crafty Purple Frog images and a new Sweet pea Stamp that I received to include fairies and mermaids.  As my card bases were 6x6 inch cards I was able to use many scraps of papers and use others from DCWV, Crafty Ann's Digi Shop and Artylicious Essence of Nature CD.  I used many different embellishments including different ribbons, Sakura Stardust clear pens, gems, gem/cherry blossom/roses/flat flowers, sentiments off the computer, sparkly mesh given to me by a friend, peel-offs, brads, epoxy corners/sentiment, lace and some chipboard flowers which I coloured with my Promarkers and then inked with blue Memento using a spotty See D's stamp.

I going to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Crafty Purple Frog - Touchy feely
Ai Factory - Flowers in bloom
Shelly's Images - Show us what you got
Delicious Doodles - Anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - Bling it on
Paper Sundaes - Sundaes Bar - Pick at least 2 toppings - I have used sparkle, die-cuts and yelllow
Stamptacular Sunday - Pile it on
Sparkles Forum - Anything goes
Pile it On - Two or more ribbons
Craft Your Passion - Show us your layers
Whoopsi Daisy - Fairies
Tuesday Throwdown - Brads or eyelets
Everybody Art - Fairies
Scrap-Creations - Flowers
Top Tip Tuesday - Squares - I used 2 6x6 square cards for my concertina - hope this is OK or just delete my entry

On a personal note, thanks for all the messages wanting to know if I was OK.  It's now 6 weeks since my surgery to remove the infection in the root canal at the front of my mouth and two weeks since more work to three more teeth by my dentist.  He said I'd have some grief from my teeth as he'd had to go so near my roots - boy was he right.  I am still struggling now and still am unable to bite into any food and have to push everything now to the back right hand side to chew as I am banned on going anywhere near the two teeth that were filled to give the roots time to settle down.  Come the second week of May it will have been 5 months that I have been unable to bite on any food/have to chew on the back.  I've got a 3 month review at the hospital in June and thought that I'd be better well before then but it might not be the case.  I've already been told it can take up to 2 years to get over the surgery - yikes!!!

That's gorgeous Kym and would be a joy to receive. Do hope you heal quickly, can sympathise as my eldest had maxifacial surgery when he was eighteen and had his jaw wired for 3 or 4 months afterwards and had to live on liquidized food. Took your advice and put in for DT so fingers crossed. Carol x
