Just a Little Note - Study in Black and White

Things went well at the dentist today. My tooth was extracted and the dentist said it had the biggest root he had ever seen. He asked to keep it for some kids science project. Pretty funny. It bled for a long time, and still is a little, but I ate some ice cream and a burrito from taco bell because I was starving, and it seems to be okay. I will salt rinse before bed! My crown turned out to look perfect. I am satisfied with it. It does not hurt at all on that side of my mouth.

M decided he wanted to play Warcraft III (I hate computer games - UGH) online with his brothers, so I decided to put in some time in the stamp room and see what I could come up with. I admit it, I am an Alli wannabe. She does such amazing things in black and white, so I decided to try to do a study in black and white. I played with another set by Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps (Second Nature by Rhonna Farrer) and love what magically appeared before my eyes. Apparently the stamp Gods are feeling sorry for me and shone down some light. The sentiment is by Stampendous and I have had it lying around forever just waiting to be used and the swirl vellum is Stampin' Up! although I am pretty sure it retired a long time ago (sue me for being too lazy to look right now . . . I am suffering *wink wink*). I embossed the flowers in black and white contrast. I really like this! What do you think of it?

Sorry, hon, about your tooth...I hate going to the dentist. That probably goes back to my childhood, but it's never anything I look forward to. Feel better soon.

Dear Amanda
Great card, I love black and white cards and also black, white, and red together, just a hint of red. Sorry to hear about your tooth. It is not fun having teeth pulled. Take care.

Oh my goodness, you should submit this Manda, it is absolutely gorgeous, way better than anything I have done. I love the vellum overlay! You did an awesome job.
Sorry about the dentist honey and I hope the pain stays away!
