Candi Circus Little Abi

Good morning all.

No problems at the dentist yesterday thank goodness but if the new nurse had shoved the squirty, sucky thing any further down my throat during the scale and polish I swear it would have come out the other end!! On the other hand it was nice to find a helpful receptionist who happily checked up to see if eldest had any pending appointments and then changed his details to include his phone no for a reminder....the usual receptionist would have sat very smugly and told me she couldn't divulge any information due to date protection!!

A birthday card to share today, for our neighbour's little girl who will soon be one.

Image is from PPinky Dolls Art, coloured with promarkers. Sentiment from LOTV. Oval dies and circle die are from Spellbinders. All other dies from Marianne Design....the doily die and flower shape have been in my stash for ages and this must be the first time I've used them!  Border punch from Martha Stewart which I've edged with distress ink. Backing paper from Crafty Individuals. Flowers from Petal Lu.
