You're a Great Catch

Hello, I've been a misery today. I've had toothache for a week and have had to wait that long for an emergency appointment- it was going to be tomorrow but when they rang up to confirm I was still coming my OH said that I was looking forward to it and was like a bear with a sore head, so they told be to come to the surgery in 15 minutes. Well, I have to have a root canal done. He has taken the nerves out and there was infection there too. In went the antibiotics and it was sealed up and I have been in worse pain than before. If I don't sleep well because of the pain I can ring up again in the morning and he will give me a script for antibiotics as well. I am hoping for a good night's sleep!!!
Luckily craft was cancelled today due to lack of people! I had a quiet day at home, I tried to have a sleep for a while. We had salmon for tea tonight but I ended up just eating a very small piece. Just enough so I could take diabetes medication. I have missed choir for about a month due to all the health issues going on with Adrian etc so I thought I had better go for practise as Palm Sunday is this weekend and Easter Services next weekend. Apart from feeling uncomfortable I did enjoy being back singing.
So... onto my card for today and then I am going to bed.
I've used SU Night of Navy for the basecard and then a layer of SU Pear Pizzazz.
The checked DPis from My Mind's Eye and the green one is from SU. The image is from Forever Friends - retro collection, The Good Life. I inked it in basic grey and coloured with Copic Markers. I popped it up with foam dots on a piece of the Night of Navy. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I added 3 small pieces of black bling. The inside has a piece of the Pear Pizzazz and then a layer of the check and I used a nestie to cut out the white piece, backed it with the Navy and then trimmed. The sentiment if from Penny Black called ...365 days.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge - sketch #66
