Back To Normal

At last I am able to craft again. My arm seems to be getting back to normal, but who can tell, "old age strikes again". This is the card that I made for my youngest daughter's birthday. This was made from the gift from Polkadoodles, and I loved making the flowers. You can do so much with them. I have also discovered Teabag folding, and with a wonky arm, that has really been a challenge.
