Holiday Robin Flip-It Card

Good morning friends

It's Flip-It Friday here on my blog, and I have a Christmas card to share today using a 5 x 7" Flip-It die from Sizzix.

The patterned paper has lovely gold foil bits in it.

I fussy cut the left side of the banner, stopping when I reached the edge of the panel on the right side of the card. Then I adhered it to the card being mindful of the score lines and folds. It was sort of a whim to try it and I'm happy with how it turned out.

On a personal note, yesterday was a better day. I still sleep for at least an hour after every pain pill but my neighbour (who has had 51 surgeries in her life) says sleep is the best way to heal. I was able to get in and out of bed without assistance so that's a big step forward. The Dr. gave me a note to give to my employer, that I would need to be off work for two weeks. So I guess I need to give it more time, - I'm only a few days into my recovery.

That same neighbour brought me over some Magnesium Oil Spray and it worked wonders on my back spasms.

I received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers from friends down here so that really made my day yesterday too.

Ok - I'm sure it's time for another sleep.

  1. Beautiful card.
    I had gall bladder surgery many years ago and remember sleeping a lot. It is truly the best medicine. Take it easy and don't rush things. Sending healing thoughts. Marlene
