It's been a long couple of weeks.  I really feel like I must apologize for the lack of posts.  I am doing physical therapy a couple times a week.  I have achilles tendonitis.  I have been trying to ignore it hoping it will go away, but so far that approach hasn't worked.  It is getting increasingly difficult to stand on my feet and walk. The pain is unbelieveable!  My physical therapy paired with Evan's school and therapies makes what little time I have at home rushed.  You know it's getting bad when I am excited to clean the bathroom and mop floors. :) 
This morning, I got up at a little after 5am.  I was determined to go get my fingers inky and use a recent color challenge from  Krista's Cards & Things Challenge

Here's the color challenge I chose:

I made a square card (4 1/4 x 4 1/4) using the hostess set, Up In The Air  from the Occasions Mini.  I thought this was such a nice springy set!

  3. Sorry to hear about your injury. Take care and get better soon. You made a sweet card with that set :)

  4. What a pretty card and perfect for the weather today. We have been seeing robins the last 2 days.
    Really missed your posts, but knew there was a good reason. Hoping for your speedy improvement. Hard to be off your feet with a 3-year old.

  5. Hey Wendy,
    You might want to try wearing New Balance shoes.
    I had the same problem and had shots for the pain but the pain came right back. I bought New Balance shoes and I am on my feet 8hours at e retail store and after about 3weeks the pain has gone away. It has been about 4 years now and some pain is coming back but I have been wearing flat tennis shoes that slip on around the the house and out to do errands that my feet are getting sore again but I beleive it's from the flat shoes. New Balance has great arch support. Give them a try.
