You stand out from the crowd- Dino Card!

Today I was looking through my gypsy and I ran into this cute Dino in Create a Critter and I noticed how different he looked from the dinos in the Dino Tracks cart. So I thought of this card for my 6 yo nephew since he's always such a sweetheart I thought I'd make him this card! TFL!

Relax Card w/ Country Life:)

It feels good to make a card again!I'm not yet completly recovered but making cards relaxes me and I finally felt good enough to make one. I designed this card about 2 days after surgery on my gypsy which goes to show you how much of myself I put into my cards. It feels good to be back:)

An update

Woohoo I'm feeling better and better everyday! Today I went in for my my follow up appointment and my doctor says I'm healing wonderfully and I don't have to pack the wounds anymore!I was so happy I practically jumped for joy! He says I can go to school if I want but I can't go up the stairs. Also can't wait until I can't make cards again. The nurse that was coming to my house saw my cards on my bulletin board and said I was really good at it! How cool is that?Anyways, As soon as I can make cards again I'm making a card for my wonderful doctor to thank him. I'll probably be back to crafting by next week!

How I'm doing post-op

So I finally got operated yesterday after a weekend of pain. It was my first time being operated under general anesthesia and that went surprisingly well.I don't remember a thing! Anyways The doctor said he found 3 fistulas and 2 abscesses and he did a biopsy on them to see if I have Crohn's Disease, which hopefully I don't. Just wanted to let you all know I'm okay. Thanks for your prayers and hopefully I'll recover quickly so I can get back to my normal life and be pain free.Thanks again guys:)

Now I really won't be making anything for a while:(

So it's official I'm finally going to get my surgery on monday. It was supposed to be a few weeks ago but there were some complications and it was pushed to August
9th. But this is it, tomorrow I go do my blood work and an EKG to prep for the general anesthesia. I know this is non crafty but wanted to let you all know I won't be crafting for quite a while.(Much to my dismay:( But I want to recover quickly so in 2 weeks I can start 12th grade feeling fabulous and get back to crafting too! I'll still leave people comments and check your blogs though; so I won't completely disappear(that's what laptops are for, oh and my gypsy will come in handy too!) Anyways I hope to be back to crafting soon!Thanks for your support:)
