It has been a long uphill road since getting released from my 16 day stay in the hospital.  I finally completed the out patient end of the program on Friday and have appointments and/or referrals for the dentist, chiropractor, neurologist, psychiatrist, therapist, opthamologist, hematologist and my DO for B12 shots a few times a week.  As I left the hospital on my way to my first appointment with the chiropractor I crashed my car.  So, things are still not really looking totally up...but at least I know and recognize my name and the year.  I finally sat down in my art area and was able to complete a card that meets the criteria for a few of the current challenges that I found.

I started by deciding to create a card with bling for the Creative Cards challenge over at Colorful Creations. Next I chose to create a round card for the Use Circles challenge at Whoopsi Daisy.  I then used the inspiration photo and instructions over at the Shabby Tea Room for the Spring Bliss challenge #163 which required the photo for inspiration as well as the colors yellow, green and white or cream as well as polka dots and flowers.

The inspiration photo:

and to complete it I used buttons for challenge #161 Use Buttons at Critter Sketch Challenge Blog.  Finally I used the sentiment 'Lifting you up in Prayer' for challenge #77 at Word Art Wednesday.

And when I put all that together here is what I came up with:

I am hoping to possibly start something else now to try and keep those creative juices flowing and to get back up to my usual flow very soon.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I have missed hearing from you all.
