The good and the bad!

Hey ya'll! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! I won the Magazine Monday's week 16 challenge from my last post! On top of that, I also won a giveaway from Papercrafter's corner of some of the new Tim Holtz product!!!! Yay!!! I'm so excited! I can't wait for my package to arrive! Whew! Now I will calm down enough to give you the bad news.
A couple of weeks ago I went to the orthopedic to see about my neck. He told me that there is a lot of arthritis in there and degeneration of the spine. To make a long story short, I can either have a nerve block done or have surgery to correct it, or continue to see the "chiroprackter doctor"( as my husband calls him) if it was helping me, which it is not! So nerve block it is! The other bad news is I had a small accident the weekend before I saw him, and I ended up 2 days later and a "doc in the box" visit with a hyper extension of my right thumb! Now I have a splint(cast) on my right dominant hand, and will most likely have to get another one for at least 2 more weeks! The ligament is torn away from the bone, and although it doesn't hurt anymore, I have not been able to make very many cards! I do have these two cards to show you that I made a couple of days prior to the thumb accident. They are short and sweet, clean and simple. I'm really getting into the "clean and simple" look lately! Not sure why. Ummmm. Halloween and Christmas card making are about to commence, so look out! Oh! I have figured out how to fussy cut with a cast on my hand! You just never know about small blessings!
 If you are still reading this, bless you! I have decided to give the cat card to my uncle who is turning 80 this Wednesday! I think he will get a kick out of it. Thanks for listening to me ramble and have a great weekend!
