Go Outdoors

 Morning all. We have a new challenge for you this morning from Make My Monday.  We would like some 'outdoor fun'.  Now we can get outdoors finally, I love to walk along the canals locally.  I've just joined the Canal and River Trust which is an organisation that keeps the canals and towpaths safe for us to enjoy.  I think my other half would prefer to be on a narrowboat but we will have to be satisfied with walking the paths, unless we win the lottery.

You may notice my style becoming a little simpler in the next few weeks.  I have suspected carpal tunnel syndrome so my wrists are in splints.  I managed to colour these images (a magazine freebie) before the splints went on.  I can still do it. I just have to do it in shifts.  

Please pop over and see what the DT have created.  We'd love to see your creations too.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x

  6. WOW - so sorry to hear about the splints and your wrist issues! That's a pain that just doesn't seem to go away and I hope you find a bit of respite soon!!!! This is a beautiful card filled with great layering and pattern papers! I love the color palette and I always like any style you choose!

  7. This is perfect for a male card. Sorry to hear about your possible carpal tunnel. I had the surgery in BOTH wrists many years ago and it helped tremendously. I had one done, let that one heal and then did the other. Best thing I ever did!!

  8. Oh no! I hope the splints help hun, just rest them as much as possible.
    Love your make, its fab!
    Hugs Shell xx

  9. Sweet Dawn, I'm deeply sorry about the medical challenges you are enduring. Please try to rest your wrists as much as possible and know that we completely understand if you ever need/want to post less here due to your health (which must always come first in life).
