Sparkle Creations: Introducing Cupid Emily

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 1 of Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps new release sneak peeks!

Today, the DT (along with our December guest designer Suzanne Czosek), are showcasing the first of 2 brand new SCRS stamps that are due to be released tomorrow. So without further ado, I am pleased to introduce ... CUPID EMILY:

[Sorry the photo is a bit naff.  I took it at night, and so the colours are not quite right, particularly Emily's skin and dress!  I'll update as soon as I get some decent daylight!]. ETA: Updated piccie added now!

It was fabulous to make something other than a Christmas card! I think I'm all Christmas-carded out at the moment, although I do have a few more I need to make.  It was also great to have the chance to use my extremely neglected Martha Stewart heart punch and the lovely MME Be Loved papers - I love these!

Unfortunately I have some upsetting news regarding my tooth - the one I had re-root-canalled 4 weeks ago and was having emergency treated yesterday.  Well, it turns out that the only solution is to have it extracted! Sob! I'm really annoyed as I paid £350 for it to be root canalled back in August!!  He was going to extract it there and then, but after explaining to me that it's very likely to break whilst being extracted (there's a curve at the bottom of the root) and so he'll then have to go in and remove the snapped off bit, I chickened out and said I'll have it done at a different time.  Once I'd gone to reception to book the appointment, they said the first available date is not until January 19th - that's 6 weeks!!!  I've never known a dental surgery with such a long wait!!  So in hindsight I wish I'd had it removed yesterday.  I bet I'll end up going in as an emergency and having it removed as I can't see me being able to wait 6 weeks!

Anyway, enough of my tooth saga, LOL!
