Wishing You a Beautiful Day

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
So pleased to be be here to share this post with you today and to say thank you for all your well wishes for my Op I had last Friday.
Although I'm a little sore and somewhat uncomfortable I'm thrilled to say that all went well and I'm not in anywhere near as much pain as I thought I might have been - and even better I have far more movement than anticipated.
I'm looking forward to Thursday when I get this horrible huge dressing off and hopefully it will just be replaced with something far slinkier - it's playing havoc with my 'tan lines' lol!!!

I've even managed to have a play in my little crafty haven this morning and here's a card I made for this month's Hobby House 'Vintage' challenge:
