Tim's Tag - Day 2 - Canvas Frosty

See below if you care to catch up on my absence/surgery.

It's Day 2, and I got a tag done!  I am so excited.  It took me hours.....but I did get into my craft room for only the 3rd time since surgery, whoo hoo Gerrie!  More than anything else, I am so happy that I was able to sit and play!  What a great feeling.


Here comes Frosty............for the most part I followed Tim's tag.  Since I only had white Sticky Back Canvas, I decided to go with the snowman.  The most fun was distressing him with that tool that Tim used.....irl it is really shabby, and I do like the look.  I do hope to get tag #1 done over the weekend....

I want to say thanks again to all of you that wished me well , it sure means a lotIt's 6 weeks today, and the hardest thing has been sitting for any length of time.......but today...........I was able to sit for the longest since surgery, so I was up and down but did accomplish something.   Funny, but for most of the time I could not even walk in and visit my favorite things....no stamps, no paper, no machines....no ink!  Even DH today said he was happy to see me in my room!  Things aren't perfect  yet, it takes a lot of work and time to heal they say.  Hope this good feeling stays around now................hugz

Love your white snowman and his jolly red scarf, but really love that you could sit and play for a little while! I sure hope each day gets better for you! This is my first time play and I am so loving it! Big hugs, GF!

Hi Gerrie! Glad to know that you're getting back in the swing of things! I'm 10 weeks from surgery and heading for the home stretch in physical therapy. Hip replacement surgery seems to allow walking sooner than knee replacement. It feels good to walk where I want to...but it's winter, and I'm a wimp about the cold! ;-) Hope you keep progressing. Oh...love the snowman tag; I appreciate the adaptation of Tim's tutorial. Take care.

Welcome back, GF!

I am so thrilled that you were able to get in your studio and make one of the tags. I remember how much you enjoyed making them last year!

Gerrie, I love this tag! I like the details like the charm, and the combination of materials you used. What did you use for the small triangles on the bottom? I just love the color...and the look.

So, glad you are getting back to where you love to be!

He IS Able!
