Anyone for Anya, A Day for Daisies PCP, Dilly Beans, & Sassy Studio

I have been a busy girl this week, love having all of this time to play with my new craft stuff!  I had to take a break from playing yesterday, though, and deal with having a tooth pulled.  It was a molar that a dentist had screwed up a root canal on, and I never went back to fix it because I was scared.  So the tooth died, and had a big hole in it, and it irritated the crap out of me but it didn't hurt or anything.  So I finally decided to have it pulled - and when the doctor went to pull it, it basically fell apart into pieces.  He had a hard time getting it out, but he was so nice about it, he kept apologizing to me.  Which was nice, since he wasn't the one who ignored the damn tooth for 5 years.  *sigh*  He also very nicely asked me what kind of pain medication I'd like.  LOL  I am not up on that kind of thing, so I said I didn't care - he offered me Vicodin or Percocet and I have never taken Percocet (sp?) but I've had Vicodin for my migraines, so I knew I could take that.  He told me to go fill the prescriptions (one for an antibiotic, too) and to take a Vicodin right away.  So I did - and promptly landed on the couch for the rest of the evening while my wonderful husband cooked dinner and cleaned up.  :)  I thought I'd wake up in a lot of pain, but I didn't - they did tell me to take it easy today, so that's what I'm doing (doctor's orders, you know - hee hee).  Watching movies and reading and (of course) surfing the Internet.  So I'll share some of what I've been working on this week.

First is my card for the:

I love this New Year's Anya digi image and let's face it, we don't get to use it very often - just once a year!  LOL  So I busted her out for this challenge, colored her with Prismacolor markers, Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I used a white pen and some glitter, too.  DP is from My Mind's Eye - diamond gemstone stickers are from my stash.

Next is an ATC that I made for the:

I colored this beautiful fairy image with Prismacolor markers, Prismacolor pencils, mineral spirits, and Perfect Pearls in Pewter.  I added silver ribbon and brads.
Now for my Design Team stuff!  :)  Today we have a new challenge & theme for you over at:

I went a little crazy cuz I love this color combo - I made 3 cards for this one, here they are:

I'm going to tell you my little "secret" about this next one - it's more like a tip, actually.  OK - so when I make square cards, I make them out of 8.5 x 11" paper, and I fold it in half and cut it to 5.5 x 5.5" - this leaves a pre-folded card measuring 5.5 x 3".  I started saving these scraps in a pile and before I knew it, I had over 50 of them.  I decided to make them into cards - and I realized that the small envelopes (not the business sized ones, the shorter ones) you get cheap at Target/Walmart/CVS - any store, really - are perfect for this size card!  Anyway - here's one of the cards I made in this size:

Last for today is my creation for the:

I kept my little shadow box black and white, painted the images on with Mod Podge and then sprinkled glitter all over it.  I added some sparkly embellies from Stamping Bella on all sides/top/bottom.  Make sure you head over to the PCP group to pick up your freebie - it's only available for 24 hours so hurry!  :)

Brilliant thinking of the penguin...DUH! and the others are just as cute (love the idea of the little card). Anya is precious and your ADFD ATC, divine. OOOh, and the shadow box is soo romantic! Hoping you're enjoying "taking it easy" today and your mouth is pain free. xxD
