Too long

It has been way too long since I have blogged last. I try not to stay on the computer too much because it just irritates my arms. I have another doctor appointment in about 2 weeks. I'm wondering if he will suggest another surgery. The PA, gave the inclination that doctor would suggest that due to the deterioration of the muscles in my arm. He suggested that the doctor might want to get rid of the dead tissue. I'm sure I have a lot since this is a chronic issue I've had for 4 yrs. This next surgery will hopefully be the last one, as it was always the secondary issue to the insides of my elbows. 4 years is way too long to deal with this.

But anyway, I'm not hear to blah, blah, blah about my arms all day, too sick of it. I'm here to showcase my latest works. I was invited to participate in a midnight madness challenge, and this is the card I made for it

I used melon mambo as my base, then added bella blue dsp, my mat is lavendar lace and my image is stamped in rich razzleberry. tfl and all your nice comments.
