"Sew" challenging...



NOT! I LOVE to sew on my cards! It's sort of a pain to drag out the ole' sewing machine every time, but the end results are always worth it to me! AJ, Maren, Jennifer and I decided to post cards with Sewing included on them today! Here's my card *NO STAMPING REQUIRED!*



EVERYTHING you see on this card, with the exception of the kraft base, prima flower and button, is by Crate Paper from the Blue Hill Collection! This is part of my loot from the PC Gallery Idol contest! I'm seriously in love with the colors in this paper, awesome! I love how vintage my card came out. I love vintage and shabby but have a hard time coming up with cards that show-case that style. At least this one turned out pretty well:)

So you wanna hear my bad news? I had a follow-up appt for my ankle today. I had an MRI last week on it and the results are that I have some serious nastiness going on. I guess I have a cyst growing on my tibia down by my ankle bones and have basically no cartilage around my talis? The bone is being chewed down by other bone! No one on this puny island can fix it so I'm going to be Medi-vac'd to Washington state to see a specialist and have him perform some kinda surgery on it. They have to drill some holes in my talis, let it bleed out and re-grow cartilidge. I'll be off my ankle for 6 to 8 weeks! HOLY CRAP! I don't know when it's happening, but I'm pretty sure it'll be soon. I really hope it doesn't interfere with me going home to be with mom and dad in late November! I already have plane tickets! ACK! So pray it goes well, I'll keep ya'll posted.

Also, my little man, Jesse, got upset when he was reading my blog and saw that I only posted a picture of Luke, Jesse wants to say "How's it hangin, babes!"



Okay, I'm off to read some more "New Moon". Gotta love this book!

Love your card AND dog. Hope all goes well with your ankle. Looks like you will have lots of creative time after the surgery, but I do hope it doesn't interfere with your trip. Keep us posted.

Dude, if you need any help with anything since you've got a bum ankle, just let me know and I'd be happy to help you out. No fun at all! At least they actually did an MRI and didn't just tell you that you should go to physical therapy! Hope everything works out.
