Boo-Boo & Witchy Zen 2

Good morning! OK so I'm gonna warn you right away that the picture of my hand is kind of gross. So if you have a weak tummy, just don't look any further  past the pic of the cute witch card. You've been warned. LOL 

OK so first I have a card using our awesome new image called Witchy Zen from Just Some Lines:    

I'd like to enter my cute witch into the following challenges:

I colored her with PrismaColor pencils & mineral spirits and used my spider & web dies from My Favorite Things.  Sentiment stickers are from Tim Holtz.

So I have been MIA - about 10 days ago, I was home alone one morning and got up at 6 as usual.  Fed the cats and went to make coffee in my old fashioned stove-top percolator (see post here).  As I put the pot on the counter, a candle fell and knocked the pot over.  On instinct, I tried to grab the pot but it had already broken.  When I looked down, I just saw a hole in my hand. I started to freak out but pulled it together quickly.  LOL  When I clenched my hand, it started bleeding and I couldn't bandage it because it was my right hand.  So I called 911 and the wonderful EMT's came & bandaged me up so I could drive myself to the ER.  I ended up having a severed tendon & a severed pulley, and I had surgery 3 days later (last Friday) to repair them.  The funny thing is that I had no pain until the surgery.  I spent the weekend in a fog and today, one week, later, I'm just starting to feel like a human being again.  Jeremy was scheduled to fly back to MA the day after I cut myself, so he's literally been taking care of me for over a week.  Anyone who knows me knows it's really hard for me to let someone else be the caregiver... I am the caregiver!  But I had no choice and I just accepted it and appreciate it so very much.  It's taking me a long time to type this but I miss blogging so much.  And coloring... I cannot wait to be able to color again.  Button my pants. Wash my own hair. Cut up my food... it really is the little things!!!  OK so here is a pic of my hand after surgery - 

It's going to take another 4-5 weeks to heal, so I have to go easy and not push it too much so I don't rupture the repairs that were made.  I am going back to work on Monday and they are willing to work with me as far as letting me go at my own pace and only do what I can do.  Hope you all have a great weekend.  Peace.
