I'm Getting There :o)

Well it's six weeks today since my op (to have metal plate put in my wrist) & I can manage to type with 2 hands for a few minutes :o)  I'm seeing the Doc today (who is also my boss!) about going back to work next week (phased return), so things are slowly getting back to normal.  

As it's time for a new challenge at Jellypark Friends I managed to make a card, well actually the card was already made I just changed the image & added some doilies which I cut on my Silhouette Portrait (a pressie to cheer me up lol).  The link to the cut file is HERE if you're interested.  I used one of my very favourite Jellypark images "Fairy Sitting in Grass" & coloured it with chalks, using Glamour Dust on the wings.  Jellypark has brand new shiny website & I hope you'll take a look & also join us for our challenge which is "Things With Wings".

The challenges:
Creatalicious - Pearls & Glitter
Simon Says - Anything Goes with Pearls
The Corrosive Challenge - In Stitches
Robyns Fetish - Fairies, Elves, Sprite or Pixies
Everybody Art - Ribbon or Lace
The Paper Nest Dolls - Use a Punch or Die
Little Miss Muffet - Anything Goes 
Digistamps4Joy - Dies or Punches

Thank you for looking & have a fabulous weekend xx
