Going for Baroque and Never going to be a hand model...

I have had this adorable card on my CASE board for a couple of months, this week I got on the CASE and made up a few. This first card was from Jen...


Here is my CASE....


Product list...
SU Baroque Motifs
SU Wasabi card stock and Ink
SU Blue Bayou card stock and ink
SU pretties Kit
SU scallop punch
Cricut circle
1/8" hole punch


I awoke on Tuesday AM in such pain I was crying (is it possible to cry in your sleep)? My hands hurt so unbelievably bad I did not know what was going on, when I got into the light they were bruised, swollen and hard to bend. I have arthritis in my hands but did not know this type of incident was going to happen, next to my eyes my hands are essential for paper crafts. My knuckles are so big now I don't even wear my wedding ring anymore, you can still see were it was resting on my finger and it has been off for months.

OH Sarah! I'm so sorry to hear about your pain! I hope and pray that you feel better soon!
BTW "my" card (now that my memory is working)I made at a get together of SCSers. I forget who came up with the card design.

That just breaks my heart to see your hands so painful, Sara. I pray that they feel better soon so that you don't have to suffer doing what you adore.

Sara - So sorry to hear your arthritis is acting up. You need to be pain free for all those beautiful creations you make. I have the same problem and some days the RX the doctor gave me just doesn't do the trick. Hope your are feeling better soon.

Oh Sara, you poor thing. I am hoping that you can find some kind of relief for your hands.

Your card is beautiful by the way!! I hope your hands are feeling better soon.

Sara: This is my first visit to your blog and when I read your 1st posting I knew I had to reply. WOW-I too have arthritis (RA) and can completely hear your pain. My hands have FINALLY come down to a pain of 4-OUT OF 10 (OUCH!) but it took over 4 months of pain-tears-meds-and emotions. I don't think I'm out of the woods yet-but dealing with weekly shots and knowing how to pace myself has helped. PLEASE keep us posted to how you are feeling-Hope you are able to get this under control QUICK! My prayers will be with you! Kadie
