Back to Normal

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes....I'm doing much better now and almost back to "normal" - well, as normal as I can be anyway!

What better way to be my "normal" self than to hit you up with a Funny Friday again!  I won this image through the blog at Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps and if you've never heard of them or checked them out, you really need to do that!  They have so many wonderful images.  You can also see fabulous ways these images are used on Karen's Kreative Kards.   

This babe's name is Clara and isn't she just a doll!  That bathing cap makes me smile every time I see it.  CAS and a fun card to make. 

And see those sunglasses........Quick story here:  Jim went out on Tuesday after my surgery and got me a pair of sunglasses to wear outside - found them for ONE DOLLAR somewhere.  Got home...... put them on thinking I looked so darling..... went out outside..... all is wonderful..... came back in and took them off..... and ALL the blue color from around the frames rubbed off around my eyes!  Looked like a RACCOON! 


Nothing fancy at all on the inside either but thought I'd show you the sentiment with it anyway (forgive it being a little blurry.....last week when I couldn't see anything, it looked pretty good!  LOL! 


Since I'm in these (almost) Golden Years I have several friends I can send this too.......So much shifting going on in the "bod" as we age!  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by.........Lynn

Monica said...

So relieved that all is well... sorry that I did not even send a mail. But you were in my thoughts and always are. And this card made me laugh yet again... The image is so funny and her red lips amuse me. No I don't want to kiss them, thanks. She looks pretty happy with her cocktail.

So those one dollar glasses showed their true colours - hahaha.

Love,
Monica

I'm laughing so hard over this one, Lynn! The sentiment is fabulous. I remember having a swim cap with flowers all over when I was about 9. I thought it was just the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. Love your story about the sunglasses! LOL
So glad things are healing and that you're back posting again. Hugs.

Great news, so glad your are heading in the right direction! Love your card, the image is too funny. You know the girls of today wouldn't be caught dead wearing a swimming cap! Fun inside sentiment too!

Carol L said...

Oh my gawd, the raccoon eyes story is hysterical! Paint those suckers with clear nail polish inside and you won't have that problem again (hopefully). I'm glad everything went well and you came through with flying colors! Your card is adorable, and I love those big red lips! Cute, & fun, and I hope your weekend goes well!

Bonnie said...

I'd go swimming with her any day! And I love that sentiment! I'm going to watch out for $1.00 sunglasses!

Tammy said...

LOL oh my! I hope all of the blue washed away!! Your card is so cute Lynn! I love that fun image and fabulous sentiment!!
Hugs, Tammy

Karen said...

Lynn, glad you are up and about. How awful to be looking like a raccoon. Clara is having fun and a few more of those martinis and she won't card what her bathing had looks like .
Great colouring and I love her hot looking toenails.
