Spots and/or Stripes at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning.
This is another scheduled post today as I am currently resting following my OP yesterday in my elbow.
As I write this I am hoping that it all goes well and that I am not 'out of action' for too long.

Here are some of things the hospital advised not to do following a General Anaesthetic:
Drive a car or any other vehicle
Ride a motorcycle, bicycle or horse
Operate machinery (my DH thinks that includes my Laptop)
Take alcohol

All of the above are simple enough to follow.
But the tricky one will be:

Make important decisions
My DH is quite worried about this as he won't know what to do without me telling him lol!!!!!

Anyway the real reason I'm here is to share my DT card for 

and this week Team Gems would like to share their inspiration on the theme:


Here's what I did:

What a beautifully sweet card! Love the sparkly flowers. Anesthetic is a funny thing. I lost some of my memory after mine and couldn't for the life of me remember my pin number for my bank card! Hope you are recovering well. Thanks for joining us at Sister Act Card Challenge :)
