A Little Time Out to Heal

Just wanted to let my friends out in blogland know that the reason I have not been able to comment and play in challenges is because, last Friday, I had a Laminectomy, back surgery to correct some sciatica.  I am on the road to recovery and yesterday was the first time I even got on my computer.  It so made me want to play in my craft room.  The first three days after surgery I was wondering if I did the right thing, but as time is going by I'm pretty sure I did.  Would just like to get back to normal again.  Even though I am not commenting know that I am looking.  It's just that still being on pain meds, makes me a little loopy.  Well my family and friends would say I am that way already. lol
Take care and hope to be back in another week or so.
Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Monday #236 with Lori

Oh wow, last Wednesday had no mojo when trying to make this card.  My friend sent me a couple of cards to help me and I so on Sunday morning I was able to come up with this fun card.  I like how this turned out.  The watercolored background is one I found in my stash that was perfect after several tries with smooshing, using my Ziggs etc.  Should have looked there first.  
This week our host is Lori and she wants us to use Stockings on our card.  Come join us at Merry Monday


PTI's Stocking Prints, using CP's inks,  Colored a panel with my Ziggs and then die cut them out.  I used Clear Wink of Stella on stockings and then on the words forgetting that the Zigg colors with re-activate.  Darn.

PTI ~ Celebrating Past Present and Future 2010

So I was having trouble making a card with this wreath.  I think I have only used it as a Christmas card, but did not want to do Christmas

I was inspired by my Colleen (my BFF's) card below

And she was inspired by this card by Betsy

PTI's Wreath for all Seasons- flowers from Color Pops Butterflies.  And of course I had to add a little butterfly.
