Deepest Condolences....

Hi! Hope you're all having a great Thursday.

I started mine off with a trip to the dentist with the boys. They each had a scheduled cleaning, but Austin's got postponed due to a little injury from yesterday.Kid won't stop running in the house- this time he tripped and hit his face on the side of his wooden bed- hit right above his top teeth. Gums and top lip are seriously bruised. No fun.  This injury involved dental x-rays and notes from the dentist stating "watch front teeth for darkening along gum line. This could indicate nerve ending damage and tooth death." Ummm... praying that we don't see any darkening. The end.

I thought I'd pop in real quick and share this card that I made for the Paper Crafts Color Inspiration Challenge. I got it in at the very last minute and didn't have time to share it on the blog-o!

Here is the color challenge:

Deepest Condolences

Love the way this one came out. I colored the flower (from PTI's In Bloom) with two different blue Copic's (B95 and B97) and then shaded a little T4 along the edges to bring in the gray color. Love the effect and I'll definitely be trying this again soon!
