Donut Worry, Be Happy (Get Well Card for myself) | Lawn Fawn & Mama Elephant

Hi everyone,

Today's card is a little different from all the other cards I've made.  I love making cards for people and lately, I love making YouTube videos to go with the cards because I have so many stories to share about all the wonderful family and friends in my life.  But today's card is one I made for myself.

By the time you read this post, I'll most likely be at the hospital getting ready for, in or recovering from surgery.  I've been anticipating this date for a while now and although it's a major procedure, I know it's for the best in the long-run.  My dad flew back from Massachusetts to be here with me in LA.  My boyfriend and childhood best friend will both be on-call for moral support and to handle whatever comes up.  My aunt Grace (remember the flower card) is also flying in on Tuesday.  The rest of my family is sending love and support from all parts of the country and internationally (I have a jet-setting family).  My aunt and uncle just drove to MA to keep my mom company too.

My wonderful friends have sent me tons of good positive healing thoughts and my co-workers gave me the sweetest send off last week and wished me a speedy recovery.  I can't wait to share what they gave me in one of my upcoming videos.  So needless to say, I'm surround by tons of love and support.

I'm a bit nervous about the operation. I have a wonderful surgeon and care team, but I'm more nervous about the pain and recovery.  I am not a fan of pain... even tiny pin pricks make me wince.  So, I decided to make myself a card that says "Donut Worry" - using the awesome Donut Worry stamps from Lawn Fawn.
