Broken Ankles

Hello friends , 

 Just stopped in to say hello! 
 I have some gnarly pictures of my broken ankles so warning if you don't want to see them leave now !

 Here is a x-ray of my left ankle you can see where it broke .

 here is the x-ray after the surgery . You can see that they put in a plate with screws . 

 They are still not sure exactly what they're going to do with my right foot . She started reading all the ligaments that I had torn and the list was very long . I also have a piece of bone chipped out of my right ankle. I may have to have one of the ligaments reconstructed.

 I get my stitches taken out on Friday , hopefully I will be able to bump myself up the stairs and get to my craft room.  


Broken Bones

Hello friends ,

 I am sorry to say that I had a very bad accident I took a fall and broke both of my ankles . So I will not be available to blog for while . Mostly because I can't get to my craft room on the second floor of my house .

 Today I am having surgery on my left ankle .

 You know that when I heal, I will have to have a celebration giveaway . So stay posted .


Sweet Friend

Good Morning!

I hope you had a good weekend.  We had beautiful weather in Maryland perfect for a swim in the pool and a ride in the boat.

Today I made a card featuring Belle & Boo, if you would like to learn more about them, click HERE.  I think I like them so much because when my daughter was a little tiny girl, she had a stuffed rabbit name Do-Dah that went everywhere with her.  

I wanted to use my Mini Misti Stamping Tool to make a scene.

It is so easy to use.  I lined up my stamps one one side in the design that I wanted.

Inked it up and pressed!

Perfect every time.  I really like this because you can use different colors on your stamps and layer them.  (I have no affiliation with Mini Misti, I just think it is cool).

Recipe for this card:

Birthday Tea Cup

Good Morning My Friends,

I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend!  It has been gorgeous here in Maryland.

Today is Challenge # 11 at International Art & Soul - Flowers.

For my design team I made this little teacup box card.  It is from SVGcuts Garden Party.

I put blackeyed susan flowers in the cup because they are the Maryland State flower and also my favorite flower. I embossed & chalked the flowers to help them stand out.  I used brads from my stash.  The colors make me think of my bloggy friend Shirl sipping tea in Hawaii.

Look at how it folds up to go into an envelope.

I have it sticking out a little so you can see how it folds right up. The "Wish Big" sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's Short n' Sweet Tags.

I am entering this card into the following challenges: 

Allsorts Challenge - Week 421 Flower Power
Crafting With Friends - Challenge #46 Anything Goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - Funday Friday Challenge - FFC 194 Anything Goes with a twist - Red, orange & aqua.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope to see your project over at International Art & Soul.  Or just stop by to see what the rest of the design team made and get a little inspiration.
