Hip Hop Hangover...Recovery Mode!

This simple card was a tough one to make.....let me explain! Last Tuesday I had my ear surgery(this post explains everything!)!! The recovery has not been fun. Dizzy barely explains it. Four meds, even Valium for the dizziness! But I can tell the surgery worked, I'm hearing a lot more with my right ear even with the packing still in. And I thought I would be crafting a lot during my recuperation...HA! I can't even look down with out feeling like I may pass out!! So I worked my way through this card which is for my dear MIL who happened to have had surgery on her wrist the same day as I did. She had a fall in her yard picking up twigs out of her beautiful flower gardens! So she may see this before I get it in the mail today....we love you mom, and hope you have a speedy recovery!!

Well, I was wondering what had happened with you! Hope you are recovering nicely and getting over the dizzies.

Also, life will be easier now that you don't have to tote around the cone!
