Mimo ski - The Stamp Basket DT

I'm a bit late with my post today because I've been struggling with a bad headache all day... I have my suspicions that it's actually caused by a problem with one of my teeth, but as I'm extremely phobic of the dentist (haven't been to one for years) I'm in denial!  I managed to get my card onto The Stamp Basket blog earlier, but I had to take a break from the laptop after that.  Anyway, here's my card...

The following items are all available from The Stamp Basket

I've coloured Mimo with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, although it was a bit of a bad colouring day so I'm not very impressed with how it turned out!  The snowflake is a wooden one, that I've embossed with several layers of gold embossing powder.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'll probably be a bit slow catching up with all your blogs tonight, but I'll get round as many of you as I can... fingers crossed I'll wake up miraculously recovered and won't have to find a dreaded emergency dentist!

Lovely card.. With fab image and colouring.

So sorry about your headache... And agree it can be linked to a tooth prob. I never seem to be away from the dentist at the mo.. Got to have two crowns... And got so nervous last time I was there that he had to let me go to the loo half way through the treatment!

Gorgeous card Lisa, not seen that stamp before. Go to the dentist and I talk from experience. Not went for years and have just finished after 10months of treatment including 2 crowns and 3 route canals. I didnt think I had any major problems, maybe a filling or two. Honestly I coulda taken out a mortgage to pay for it. Now I swear to go every 6months, and yes I'm still petrified!!

Lisa Jane said...

Thanks for joining us at MAWTT for our let it snow challenge this week

Well I think this is adorable, I really like the traditional Christmassy colours and I honestly think your colouring looks great. Love the snowflake, it looks really vintage.

I hope your headache gets better and please get your tooth checked out! I don't like going to the dentist either but I'd hate for you to get ill with your tooth, it's not nice at all (speaking from experience).
