What should have been a fantastic weekend....

.. was rendered awful by the fact that on Saturday evening, when the house was full of family, my tooth holding the bridge at the very front of my mouth broke, leaving me looking about 95 years old, and unable to eat or talk. As i type i am awaiting a trip to the dentist, i am so worried he won't be able to do anything about it, but i can't talk, so yet again am unable to go into work. I just feel as if there is a curse upon me this year :(

So, what was good? Well i went to an amazing crop with classes run by the very talented Tracie Hudson, couldn't do much talking... but as it ran from 10am to 8pm i managed to get 4 amazing LOs made. I will post these during the week. In the meantime here is a page i made for a pre-crop challenge. The photo was taken at the end of May, and seems appropriate for this day which is due to be the hottest of the year so far! I picked up these really bright papers at a craft fair ages ago, and they seemed perfect for this page. Plenty of handstitching too.

It is also my lovely sisters birthday today, i gave her the wall hanging at the weekend, and she was delighted with it, here is the card i made for her. Love the Sizzix XL scalloped card die!!(And Julia you may recognise the little tag attached!)

So wish me luck for later.... and i hope he can save the bridge, as the cost of replacement doesn't bear thinking about.
Update... dentist has glued the offending bridge back on... and although the tooth underneath is broken, he is hopeful that it will stay put. i have an appt next week anyway for a filling, so he'll check it again then.

Oh, you just live in fear of these things happening once you've had dental work done at the so glad he was able to 'do' something (anything) to help..your sister's card is almost as lovely as the hanging! Love the LO too, am off for an enlarged browse over it.
