Baby Card and Surgery Update

There is a Baby Shower this afternoon for a couple at Church. They are having a littl girl. This is a diaper, shampoo, lotion, etc. shower. Mom and I went in together for all the needed goodies. Last week before surgery day, I made this card. I used the Sugar and Spice Cartridge, Ki Memories-Baby Cakes cardstock pack for the background. I stamped Congrats on the inside. Mom wrote a little message for us. I think it turned out really cute. Photo posted below my rambling!!
Update on surgery. We were there alllllllll day!! It went well. I'm all bandaged up. From just below my fingers to almost my elbow. Am not allowed to even use my fingers for a couple of weeks although I have to keep wiggling tem so they don't stiffen up. Came home nicely doped up. Doesn't take much to work on me. I take enough meds for my RA so I don't like to take much of other stuff. I don't want to get depended on it. I figure that if I can handle RA pain, I can handle other pain also.  I've been going in my craft room and longingly looking at my stuff! LOL I've been visiting blogs. Takes a little longer to comment using just my left hand but am getting a little faster at it. I've gotten some blog awards lately and will be posting those at some point in the next week. Those that have blessed me with them, I just want you to know that I haven't forgot and Thank You!!! I'm hoping to lose a pound or two since it takes me longer to eat lefthanded. I'm getting full quicker. Maybe I've hit upon a great weight loss plan!! Well guess I'll hush for now. Come back by tomorrow and see what I've made for the new Paper Playtime challenge. Hope ya'll like my Baby card!!! :)

Hi Sharon! I hope you feel better soon. Is RA Rheumatoid Arthritis? I take injections for Crohns and in the list of what it's taken for is Rheumatoid Arthritis since it's an auto immune disease too. I hope the pain does get better and you get well soon and get back to creating!Btw, Love you baby card!

Oh dear, hon, I had no idea! Glad your surgery went well and hopefully you'll be on the mend and pain free in no time. Love your baby card. Bet it's gonna drive you nuts not to craft for awhile. I'll be thinkin' about you. xxD

What a sweet card!! Love the BG paper ! Thanks for the update...I'm so glad you are feeling ok...sounds like you are in good spirits !! Keep wiggling those fingers...I bought Dan a soft ball to grasp and squeeze after his CT surgery....they might want you to do the same. LOL I had to laugh....if having to eat lefthaned helps shed some pounds, I'm going to tie my right hand behind my back !! Take care and DONT over do!!
xoxo Joy
