Finally the hand has healed...err sorta

Hi All,

Well after 8 weeks of my hand being in a cast/splint I am finally able to use it for something more then a thing to bash my head in my sleep with. I have what is called a gamekeepers thumb, basically I broke the bone in it and I have done some tendon damage.  But the splint is cut down and I am able to colour and decorate my cards. Big YEAH from me.

Tonight I have done a card for my Uncle Guys birthday.  The image is from Mo Manning, I love her images they are so much fun to work with. The saying inside says "Another year older and you still can't dress yourself Oh well happy birthday anyways!  I used copics on it and everything else is from scraps I had already. I do know for sure the green background paper is from my wedding invites and the buttons are from my Mom.... thanks Mom for stocking my craft room :)  I did not write down the colours I used please forgive me I can only do so much. For example it has taken 3 attempts at posting this but every time I am close to done my thumb runs over the mouse pad on the laptop and deletes my whole post. Oh well I finished it now.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

You must be so relieved to have your coloring hand back! I just love this image too and never thought to use it for a man (although I know several it applies to also, lol), very funny!
Thank-you for sharing with us at The Poodles Parlour!
