I am writing this post almost a week ahead, but as you are reading this, I am probably in La-La Land. I thought that today's post would fit perfectly with this cute little bird singing la-la-la!
Why am I in La-La Land? Today I am scheduled for carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand and left elbow. That is stage 1. Stage 2 is the right hand and right elbow scheduled for next month. I have no idea how long it will take to recover, or when I will get to stamp. I am going to try one-handed by Monday, and I hope that things will turn out okay and that I am not making ugly. :) I don't think I can wait 4-6 weeks for each side to be able to stamp! I have been putting this off for four years though, and now is the time.
I can't talk on the phone, wash my hair, sleep, type, stamp, or drive without my hands going numb. So enough is enough and I am under the care of a very good doctor right now. I told him I didn't want to hear ANYthing, and he said to tell them I wanted to be "snowed." No general, just a block and some La-La medicine! :)
Am I nervous? Yes. Everything I do involves my hands. I have played piano in church almost every Sunday since I was 10 years old (yep!) and now I will be taking the whole summer off. I think I will be forced to learn to stamp CAS better now, don't you? :)
Anyway, my card today is made with a vintage image from TLC Creations called You Make My Heart Sing. I watercolored using dye inks and an aqua brush. Designer paper is the Annalee line by Prima. I think it's so sweet.
Thanks for stopping by today - wish me luck - and I hope to be back soon~!
