My grand child #4, Collin, just got braces Thursday and he is in some serious pain today.  Poor guy!!  The worse part is there is nothing a Grandma can really do except that is what I decided to do by making him a funny card that lets him know I understand what he is going through.

I saw this adorable monster on a fellow demonstrator's blog and knew I had to change this from GET WELL to SORRY FOR THE BRACES PAIN and make it for him.

 Is he the most ADORABLE and UGLY thing you have ever seen??!!  I used the main idea and did some changes - made the eyes different sizes, added plaque around his teeth, and added the braces.

The little guy is just so fun, I laugh every time I look at it.  Those eyes are like what one feels when one is on "the brink". We have all been on the brink for one reason or another, haven't we??

 A close up of the sentiment on the front:  HELP ME!  ha ha

a look at his teeth from the inside of the card OR the inside of his mouth like a dentist would see.

 Here is the card opened up and Monster says TEEF' HURT.  ha ha  L-O-V-E    I-T.

 A closeup of the inside sentiment.

One final look before I put a little note inside and send him on his way to help Collin feel better.

Thanks for visiting me and I hope you enjoyed my fun card.  Please stop by again to see my next creation, won't you?
