Blog Hop coming up!

make a gif

Hi everyone.  Boy this has been a tough two weeks.  The knee surgery went great, but the rehab (at home) is really intense.  Painful is the word.  It will all be worth it soon when the discomfort goes away.   While I was in the hospital, we were robbed.  DO YOU BELIEVE THIS? Well enough crummy things,  I am going to get happy happy.  Back to crafting and back to hopping.  I am honored to have been asked to participate in a Disney blog hop on May 7th sponsored by Sylvia over at bellascrapbookdesigns. See you there.

Thank You Card for my Nurses and Therapists

Hi everyone.
Well tomorrow is D-Day or should I say Knee Day.  I may be missing in action for a few days BUT I read the hospital book and they have wifi all over the hospital for your use soooooooooooooo maybe I will be able to send a note.  Anyway, I made a thank you card for the nurses and therapists that I will give when I am discharged.  The sooner the better thank you.  I will give this along with some chocolates cause I know from experience that they LOVE chocolates.  I included the inside and back of the card because I wrote the poem to give them.  Check it out.

I think if you click on the card you will be able to read the poem.  The paper came from Ki memories stack.  The card is 5.5 by 8.5 (A half fold card)  The digi is from Prarie Fairy Designs .
I think it came out cute.
Well that's all for today. 
See ya in a nice

Birthday Card with butterfly
