Thoughts of You Starfish card

You Rock card

Hi there, crafters! I’m finally back with a card! Thank you all so much for the healing prayers and well wishes! It worked – NO surgery needed! That is so awesome! I cannot believe my good fortune!

So, here is my first card back and it isn’t perfect but I like it! It is for Always Fun Challenges #62 For a Male/Dad. I went with this card because I needed a male graduation card for one of my son’s friends who just recently graduated from college! Yay for him! I hope you like my card and join us for the fun! I look forward to seeing what you make!

no cards for awhile

hi everyone. i hurt my arm but i did not fall or anything interesting! i got a massage and that triggered the pain! so the arm issue is a big problem. xrays indicate that i have calcification tendonitis of the rotator cuff but i have to wait to do an mri for 2 to 3 weeks so i will be in a sling for awhile. i won’t have cards for awhile since just typing with one hand is too hard. i will miss crafting. after the mri the doctor will determine if he can try an injection into the shoulder joint or do surgery. but to complicate things i am unable to do steroid shots so the pain is immense. thank you for understanding! i hope i can do easy cards soon! my friend said she’d help me so once i get past the huge pain, i’ll be able to do something! thanks for the well wishes! the bright side is i don’t have to cook or do chores! LOL! cyndi
