CD Sunday - 'A' is for............. Artist

Good Morning everyone.  I am making good progress and now able to do some typing albeit it in short bursts.  But at least I can now get back to some commenting on the Challenge Blog entries and feel that I am taking part again.

'A' is for..... is our theme this week and all the team have chosen something different.  All without planning I must point out.  For my own 'A' is for Artist I decided to do some stamping.  I think it is a Penny Black stamp  but I am not 100% sure. I coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and then mounted and matted on to a most appropriate background paper from Messy Rabbit Cd by Joanna Sheen.  Not sure where the sentiment comes from either - put it down to my fragile condition.
Here is my offering - and I thoroughly enjoyed the making:

I will have been to see the Consultant for the first time since the op by the time this is posted and I am keeping my fingers crossed for a good report and being told it is healing well.
Physiotherapy will be the next stage and the sooner the better.  I need to get back to crafting.  TV and Jigsaws are proving  tedius.  Also I am running out of 'here's one I made earlier', and money - cos I can still shop with one arm.

Addendum.  The Hospital made a mistake on my card  and my appt is next Wednesday not yesterday.
