Some Fun Halloween Cards For You, FTL311

Hi stampers! Today I have 2 fun Halloween cards for you. One is from the sketch for last week and I just didn't upload it on time. That was such a cool sketch and Natasha's and Chera's cards were breathtaking. Don't you think so? I sure do!

It's hard for me to get into Autumn or Christmas when it's still in the 80s daily and the warmest months in San Francisco this time of year. It's also when we get the most earthquakes and we've been getting a lot of them in the Bay Area lately, like 6.2 earthquakes, which are respectable. Even a 2.6, if you're 6 miles from the epicenter, look out. The last one was a rolling and a shaker earthquake. You have to live here to understand what I mean :( Harriet lives in the Bay Area so she's been rocking' lately too.

Anyhow it's time for my cards now. I do ask that you keep me in your prayers. I've had a right-hand wrist drop for 2 months now and I'm very tired of this. I have to wear a brace. I took my dad's car out the other day and almost screamed since I'm getting some feeling back. It takes every single everything to turn the key in the ignition. I drive a Volvo, so no key. The fob just has to be within a certain distance that I usually toss in my cup holder. To text, I had 3 stylus's and of course, I can't find one right now, which really means it's somewhere on this crazy messy desk of mine - but, I got the new iPhone 6 Plus. Totally dwarfs the 5 and way bigger keyboard. I'm very happy with it so far, although it's hard to cram in the back of your Levi's pocket since it's not long enough. If I put my cell in my purse, it's gone forever. Google "drop wrist" and it will explain it to you. I don't have the use of my right hand is what it boils down to. I used to love getting my hair done. Now it's mandatory. You can stop by my blog for updates or other social media avenues that I have to keep up with my progress, or lack thereof.

I want to let you know that this is also a very common stamper's injury. I'm hoping to make a video before next Monday to show you what this is all about. Typing does not do me any favors since I index finger type with the right hand keeping it in the drop position. Not good.

I do hope you like my cards. I do stalk your blogs to see what you made and what a talented group of participants we have weekly that are so faithful to play along with us. It's safe to say that we all appreciate you.

Thank you for visiting today!



I used all My Favorite Things on this week's sketch and all Papertrey Ink on last week's sketch.

Cindy - I just googled this condition. I do hope that this improves for you. I can't imagine how difficult things must be for you right now. I think the cards are fabulous!

Take care x

Thanks Deborah. I really appreciate it. Just this past week I've been able to start flexing my wrist, but we're talking working my way up to 2 inches. If my fingers would cooperate, that would be nice. I'm hoping to start physical therapy the week after next. Stephanie Barnard will be here teaching a class that I signed up for and the Scrapbook Expo next weekend in Sacramento. It's going to be a lot of fun as I'm working several booths. Chico has 1 cool point only because there's a Victoria's Secret n the "mall." I sure do miss shopping. I'm going to stay there for a few days and catch up :)
