Today I am Thankful

The sentiment on this card couldn't be more appropriate.....
.... this time last week I was dealing with a broken leg, cast, restrictions to life upstairs for weeks ...grrrr how dumb does one feel to  miss the last step....
Well it was off to the hospital for a followup and xrays yesterday..... can you believe I've come home with no cast, no moon boot and I'm able to hobble about... YES!!  they were happy nothing wrong with the ankle and as it was the top of the Fibula (small leg bone) and non weight bearing - that it will mend nicely, just take care and rest it lots... YIPPEEEEEE..... so I am 'Today very thankful'.
This is a snippets card... had this already DI watercoloured gold embossed stamped sunflower in my stash and decided to cut it up.  And after trying to line up the "Inchies" with a nice border, without success, thought well they can be a bit wonky like I was feeling... so arranged them on dark cream card, sponged the edge and attached to a cream card with my stamped sentiment - a stash element too.
I am playing along with CAS Mix Up September challenge - Inchies .... I think it's borderline CAS.  And also with Pixie's Snippets Playground #360.   Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy stamping.

  1. Good news Robyn! For "take care and rest it lots" read - " sit for long time in the craft room and make messy"!
    Happy cheery sunflower and lovely card! x

  2. Oh good grief Robyn - that was a mix of bad but also good luck! Do still take care, Viv is right with her advice.

    Wonderful card too - I adore how you split up the image. It reminds me of stained glass! So pretty.

  3. So happy that you came home without a cast!! AWESOME news Robyn!! You still need to rest a lot ... so no housework for you!! I know you'll be disappointed, but you can fill your time making cards. :)

    I LOVE card! The sunflower is so pretty. Arranging the inchies a bit wonky adds some fun to the card. Great work! xx

  4. A good message for all of us and I'm so glad you got good news, Robyn! Be careful and not overdo and end up back in a cast! Love your cheerful sunflower and it works great for inchies. The wonky squares are perfect for me, LOL! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  5. Goodness, so glad all is well. Love the wonky inchies (...inspired by the fall? ;-) )
    Your sunflower watercolouring is WOW, you truly reflected their majestic appeal. Beautiful!
    Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! ...take care xxx

  6. What great news!! I am so happy for you! And what a fantastic card .. I love it!

  7. I'm so glad nothing was wrong with your ankle, Robyn! Take a good care of yourself for quick recover.
    Your sunflower inchies card is fantastic! Love your watercoloring and the way you arranged the inchies.
