Friends with Flair

     Happy Friday, friends!  I feel so bad about missing a post last Friday, but as you know from my previous blathering, I had surgery that day.  I am glad it is behind me, and I am praying that things start healing a bit more quickly.  The Dr. found lots of inflammation and also tendonitis.  The stitches come out on Monday, and although they are healing well, and my fingers are bending, I still can not hold a pen steady or apply pressure to stamp.  Okay, enough of this, cause it stinks to be home from work, and unable to be crafty!


     I created this card with my Unity KOM for August 2014, before my hand went down.  I have a few backups to use.  Please be sure to visit the Friends with Flair post over on the Unity Blog

 
     The card is a simple one, with a white base and some great Halloween paper I found at Tuesday Mornings.  I believe it is Bazzill, and that cute hounds tooth is on the reverse side.  I colored the hat image with colored pencils and applied some fun beads as a band.  This new kit has so many fun images, and I can't wait to get into coloring them!

     I want to thank everyone for the cards and well wishes, and I am sure I will be up and at it soon.
