It's been 2 1/2 weeks since my thumb surgery and I'm healing nicely. It has been a lot more painful than I was expecting but dr says it will get a lot better as time goes on. I managed to get in a 2 mile walk yesterday since it had warmed up to 60 degrees but now the cold temps are back and I probably won't get back out there till later next week. None of my heavier coats fit over my right hand.

I was able to get a removable splint put on so I can take it off in the shower only. Otherwise it will stay on for another month and then a much smaller splint will go on for another 2 months!

I was excited when I could hold
my chapstick with that hand lol

Firstly, what a really sweet card! I just love the image you used and it's perfect for a CAS card. Secondly, I was surprised about how wonderful your card was once I saw your splint! Hope you're left-handed!! If not, you are one serious crafter to continue despite the temporary handicap. :D Thank you for playing with us at the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
