Hello Everyone..

Had my stitches out today and boy! I feel better.
The results are not the best..but at least the surgeon is quite certain that he got it best foot forward and on we go..

I have a card to share today that I made ages ago for the magazine at Lacy Sunshine  and just never really blogged her. She managed to get pushed to the back of an unblogged pile, so here we go..

This is the ever so lovely Kenli forget-me- knot   from the Flower Pot Pretties Collection.

The post cards were freebies and I printed them out and inked the edges..reduced their sizes and the suitcases I found in the colouring pages and treated them the same by shrinking them down and printed onto kraft then coloured with  inks and silver gel pens.

Kenli was coloured with Faber Castell pencils...her wings with copics and glitter added.

I fussy cut out more flowers and added pearls to the centres..

And there is the side view..

So thanks ever so much for all your well wishes and strict orders to rest...I did as I was told and back up and running...well, not really running..can't wear a bra yet..[shudder the thought]

Will be back tomorrow with my Digital Delights will see you all then.

Had to scroll back a ways to find out what was/is going on with you. So sorry I haven't been around more but I do think of you often.

So glad to hear your surgery went well. You are a brave soul my friend. Man I want them to put me out so I don't see, hear, or feel anything..LOL

Love your card and that adorable image which you've colored beautifully. Take care my friend and I'll be around again soon to see how you are doing. Hugs!!!
