Here is another scheduled post as I am still recovering from my bilateral Carpel Tunnel Decompression surgery.
I had two visits to the hospital last week as at the first visit they could not get all the stitches out so I had to return two days later. It was a success that time so I have all my stitches out and I was allowed to take my dressings off on Saturday.
I can move my fingers/hands but still can't turn my hand easily to do things like picking up drinks, opening doors etc but I know it will come with time.
It's now 2.5 weeks since I crafted and I have SERIOUS withdrawl symptoms. I miss it so much. I know I'll be back crafting very soon - but it can't come soon enough!!
I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Charity Dauenhauer that I have used is called "Silent Night". It is available as a digital stamp.
I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens. I used a circle die and cut a circle out of a sticky note, stuck it behind the fairy and the wolf and then used my blue Pan Pastel to colour in the background. I find this so much easier than using a distress ink as I haven't got very strong hands.
I have gone for a colour scheme of turquoise and red. I have tried to keep the card as flat as possible because of the cost of postage. I have used some backing papers that I got off a friend for Christmas. I have finished the card off with some fabric flowers with buttons added to the centres, ruched ribbon, gems and a sentiment that came in the paper/decoupage paper pack and I have just added a hole and put some ribbon through it.
