Well, I'm finally back...taking it very slowly...but I'm back.  I'm able to sit at the table long enough to be crafty for a couple hours.  For those that don't know, back at the beginning of August I had surgery on my spine.  They had to remove part of my disc located at the C5/C6 area of my spine and replace it with a bone plug and plate to keep it in place.  So for the last month I have been taking it easy to help with the healing process.  Over the past couple of weeks I have started to slowly get back into the swing of things.  Anyway...enough about me......

This is a birthday card I created today for a friend at church who loves fishing.  The image I used is from Meljens and is called Fisher Moose.

Gorgeous card Mary! Your image is fabulous with great colouring :)

Glad to hear your operation was successful and that you are taking it easy, the body is a wonderful machine if you let it heal at it's own speed. Hope it continues to get stronger.

Many thanks for joining in with our Use a Digi challenge over at OSAAT & hope to see you back again soon.

I didn't know you had surgery. That sounds extremely painful. Praying for a quick healing. I love your cute little moose. I like the stars. So colorful. Thanks for sharing with the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.
