Driving me batty

 Morning all.  I hope you are all ready for a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz.  We are looking for an 'Animal' on your projects please. I have to admit to cheating for this one a little bit.  I've had to use a card I'd got in my stock.  My appointment for a steroid injection into my wrist was a 'good news, bad news' situation.  The good news is he decided to do both wrists at the same time.  The bad news is that I was unable to use both hands for a few days whilst the steroid worked it's way into the effected area.  I am, however, getting through quite a bit of reading and a tonne of You Tube videos.  I'm having to prop up my phone and use my Kindle App but I'm on my third book since Friday. 

I am slowly getting around to doing some commenting on the computer and I have managed to put some papers together to create finished cards when I'm up to speed.  My hands feel fabulous in the morning but I am still getting numbness and pain when I attempt too much.  Anyway, I'd better post this card.

I probably wouldn't have chosen a bat as an animal normally but, as my frustrated hubby pointed out, 'it counts'.  He was helping me go through my cards.  Bless him.  The digi image comes from a cute set on Etsy by Mya Detalles Que Enamoran.  I have found several new to me digi stamp companies recently whilst browsing Etsy - as you do.  Not sure my OH blesses me when I've been 'browsing' (shopping).

OK, over to you before I over do it.

Thanks for reading - and for all your good wishes regarding my wrists.

Love Dawn x

  5. I'm deeply sorry about everything you're going through on the health front, Dawn. Thank you so much for continuing to post here and inspire us with your wonderful makes (this bat card is cuter than Halloween candy is sweet). Please, really and truly, try to take things easy though and know that we totally understand if you're not able to post at times due to your wrists.
