Elegant Post blog hop WINNER!

What a week it's been! I've had to get an emergency root canal and during one of the dental visits, the infection hadn't cleared, so the Novocaine didn't work all that well. Man, I'm thankful God made me to have a high tolerance for pain. It was still awful, though. My mouth is still sore and I have one last appointment on Friday before we head home to Croatia on Thursday.

I've also been taking my girls to see their dermatologist. All three of them have/had eczema and my youngest has it the worst. We just want to make sure we've all stocked up on all the creams, medicines and lotions before we leave. And today, I'm off to see another doctor about my sinuses. I was supposed to have sinus surgery, but because I don't have the recommended recovery time (I was told about 2 weeks before we are supposed to leave) anymore, I opted out of it until next time we're stateside. For now, I will just have to spray my nose regularly to keep my sinuses healthy.

Okay, enough medical talk ;-) are a couple of cards using my Elegant Post stamp set. The card bases of both cards are from My Mind's Eye.

Ink: Ruby Red
Paper: Ruby Red, GKD Pure luxury white, So Saffron
Other: red button by Michael's, string, Martha Stewart Punch and pearl

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Blk, Sage Shadow
Paper: Black Onyx
Other: Aqua Mist button by PTI, ribbon by Michael's, Marth Stewart Punch

Finaly, here's the winner of the Elegant Post blog hop...and gave me number #73 and that's STAMPQUEEN who said...
