Wishing You the Peace and Joy of Christmas

Good evening! Just checking in to say that I'm still alive and well, though it's frustrating to say the least that I can't craft or get out in the garden the way that I want to right now. I just have to keep telling myself that a bit of rest now means I will heal and be able to do the things I want to later. But I'm impatient so that hasn't been a whole lot of consolation unfortunately.

I've been watching lots of movies lately. Bad '80s ones. Does anyone have any suggestions as to occupations which will keep me busy without using my hands?

I can sort of craft - as long as there isn't much wrist work involved, and if I'm careful. I have created the following card for AnnaBelle Stamps' Say it with Sentiments challenge, and CAS-ual Fridays want us to go over the edge, so I did!

Wishing you the Peace and Joy of Christmas (1)
Sorry this isn't going to be too descriptive. I'll just leave you with a list of supplies:

Background by Design 3 - Annabelle Stamps
Christmas Wish - Annabelle Stamps
Kraft cardstock, ribbon, Helmar glue runner twine.
