Back in my Craftroom Again!

Where does the time go? 
I can't believe it's been a week since my last post. I've gone
back to work but I'm still on crutches. I've been on crutches before 
but I'd forgotten how exhausting they can be. I only work 4 1/2 hrs 
a day but by the time I was done I didn't have any energy to get to 
my craft room.

You know that song "Back In The Saddle Again" by Aerosmith?
Well yesterday I was singing "Back In My Craftroom Again" and it felt
fantastic! It's a mess in there and I only managed a couple of hours
before I had to put my foot up and ice it but that's the first time
in over a month that I've been in there!

Here's a picture of the mess...

and here's the card I made for this weeks challenge over
at Merry Monday. The challenge is to make a card with candy canes
on it.

I couldn't find any stamps with candy canes so I looked through my 
digital images and found this one by Doodle Pantry. Those little mice 
are adorable! My coloring still needs some work but I'm happy with 
how it turned out.

Hopefully I can get back in there again this week. I just wish
it was upstairs - it would be so much easier.
