Let’s Get Shabby Challenge #14~Knee Surgery :o(

Let’s Get Shabby Challenge is a two part challenge, wings and this quote:

'Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly'

I took Heidi Swapp’s playing cards and created these:

IMG_0842 IMG_0843 If you lift up the flower you can see where I stamped, so, the left side reads “do what U Love” and the right is “Be Creative, play”.  I plan on putting these on a layout as embellishments.

I love the quote and I feel as you all are “Friends who are angels that lift me to my feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly” !

I want to thank you girls for your best wishes for my knee surgery Monday.  For those of you who don’t know I had a total knee replacement 18 years ago.  It is old and loose and has to be redone again.  Hence, my surgery Monday morning with 2 weeks in rehab and then another 4-6 weeks of out patient therapy.   So,  I hope you come back to visit me and enjoy the rest of the summer.  Don’t have to much fun while I’m gone!  ;o)  Hugz, Z
