I'm drooling...and stamping

Now I know most of y'all haven't known me for long, but I detest the dentist.  NO offense at all to dentists out there, but they freak me out! Today I was scheduled for a deep clean and a crown (somebody stop me with the cotton candy, please). I get there and have to have 4 - read it again - FOUR shots. Are you kidding me? On American Idol night? Really? Four shots is unnecessary if you're not getting all of your teeth pulled. Ugh. I'm not a happy camper at all.

Even in the blubber that is my mouth, I knew I needed to get a post in today. I'm sure at least one of y'all waits by the Mac for my posts, right? :0) Plus, I told you guys yesterday that I was going to post my Mojo Monday card tonight. This isn't the one I was working on last night. I trashed that one as soon as I saw the man in brown pull up the street. He had my BELLA's! Yay! I've been waiting on those little buggers and couldn't wait to get into that package. So, pain pills be darned - I have to stamp! Here she is...

I really wanted this card to be fun with all of the dots and stuff, but when I decided to paper piece her chair..well, let's just say that was a bad idea. It took forever to get between her little arms and next to her neck. Of course, once I started, I couldn't stop. Ugh. I like the way she came out, though, and I'm not a huge fan of polka dots (again, no offense to people who like dots or the Polka for that matter..lol) I also paper pieced her rug. If you have to work in an office, we all know that the best way to make it better is to personalize it a tad. :0)

Ok, well..i've got to get in bed. My mouth is throbbing and my husband is wondering why I am on the computer. Gotta get in the bed...oh, but first I gotta vote for Lee and Crystal on Idol. Anybody catch those text numbers?? lol!

Love it, Keva! I want some of that navy/white polka dotted paper! My poor Bellas are laying neglected in a drawer, all one million of them. What's that? I think I hear them screaming, "Use me on a card, NOW!" Well, not now, it's a work night, but soon! :-D I spent a fun-filled appointment at the dentist myself yesterday . . . and the best part was, I get to go back next week for a root canal! Thanks for posting!

Oooh, I just got this bella too! I can't wait to use it...hopefully tonight or tomorrow!! Great card!

As far as the woodgrain goes, I actually got both the stamps and the impression plate. ;) I haven't used the plate yet though so I can't attest to what it looks like but I do love the stamps!

Hey Keva! This is super darling! I love your fun papers and that image is awesome. I'm a paper piece-aholic, so I'm likin' what you did here, hehe. I sure hope your mouth is feeling better now. . .I'm not a big fan of the dentist either (shudder) ;)
