This is so beautiful. She is such a sweet image. Dont get yourself into knots Misses, the appointment on Thursday is only to tell you when the procedures will be done. And because its a wisdom tooth as well, you'll be out cold so you wont even know whats going on. It'll be over in no time. Lee xx

Amanda said...

Lovely card, beautifully coloured. I think sometimes we imagine things are worse than they will be especially any stay in hospital, hubbie thinks it is the thought of being away from my copics that frightens me more than anything else. Hope all goes well and you will have a very speedy recovery.
hugs
Amanda

Christine L said...

Love this image and the lilac you have used on the card Nic... FAB card altogether..

Now, about the dental work... try not to worry hon.. just think 'what's the worst they can do to me?' then remember, that you'll have it sorted and be out of there in no time with your teeth sorted. Oooh and line up a little treat for yourself to look forward to 'the other side' of it! I know that it's easier said than done, and we wouldn't be human if we weren't scared... and I'm not one to talk... but hope that helps a bit...
Big hugs for you
Christine x

Jules said...

Hi Coops .. .. I don't think anyone in their right mind would feel comfortable about the thought of having things done to their teeth and gums!!

I would feel exactly the same as you! I hope all goes well and that it isn't too uncomfortable afterwards.

Loving your card. Cute image and the perfect sentiment alongside.

Love Jules xx
