Robot Love and Desks

I did manage to get another Valentine card made prior to my "accident" Sunday morning.  And I thought I'd share that card with you today as I join in with the What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday blog hop brought together by the head desker, Julia, at the Stamping Ground.  If you are new to this just click on the "What Is WOYWW?" page when you head over to the Stamping Ground for more info.  So, are you ready?


Nope, nothing going on.  That's because Sunday as I was heading out the door I took a tumble down our back steps.  I was going slow and hanging on to the hand rail because the steps were a bit icy but, with my caution, I still went down.  Two butt bumps and my right leg twisted under.  After I got hubby calmed down, made sure there were no compound fractures and everything wiggled or moved like it should I got up.  Leg wasn't quite right so, since I was right next to the car, I got in the driver's seat.  I drove us to the local hospital E.R. (hubby was more stressed than me).  He did get a wheelchair and, about an hour later and 3 or so Xrays,  my diagnosis was a sprained my right ankle.  Then off to Walmart to get an ankle brace and some Tylenol Extra Strength.  So, no stamping for a couple days. I did drive to Bible Study yesterday and buy a pizza but even that wore me out.  I'm not real confident on crutches but did manage to maneuver. So, now that the excitement level is dropping I'll show you the card I got made about Saturday.


This cute little guy is a new set from Fun Stampers Journey.  This is my 2nd card made using this fun Bot Love set.  You'll have to go to my last post to see the first.


 I added some Stardust Black gel pen to make the eyes sparkle and added some Glass Glitter to the top heart. All products are FSJ.

Now, head on over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other crafters taking part in this fun event.  I'll be working my way around a bit later.

Oh, how do you like my blog's new look?  I spend a bit of time Saturday morning updating.  I thought with 2016 some things need to change.

Oh Carol, I AM sorry to hear about your fall, and your sprained ankle! I did that once - it's done in a trice and so painful - I ended up in plaster (torn ligaments) and on crutches for weeks. Hope your recovery is faster than that! A great start to the New Year, I must say... Wishing you all the best for a speedy recovery and a return to your crafting. Love the little robot - he's adorable! You remind me that Valentine's Day is only just around the corner and I haven't even thought about it yet!

Thank you for your lovely comment, and a nice welcome back! Glad you like my Zentangles. It's a gentle way to exercise my creative mojo back to fitness again!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #22

Oh dear I do hope your ankle isn't as sore now? Lovely desk, I find crafting helps me to ignore my pain. Take care Zo xx 42

Take care of that ankle. Sometimes it can be worse than a break. I sprained my ankle couple years ago and it took ages before getting better. Ended up having to have surgery on it as I damaged tendons as well. Crutches aren't fun at all but make sure you use them!

Boom! Down you went. Your fall sounds pretty vicious so it is good that you weren't hurt more. Cute robot card. He has a very nice smile.

Ouch Carol, hope your ankle is recovering now. It just happens, doesn't it? you think all is well, and suddenly, there you are on the floor feeling somewhat foolish.... Trust all goes well with the recovery.
That's a cute card you managed to make.
Thanks for the visit and the comments.
Take care. God bless.

I had planned to visit sooner, but about an hour after I linked to Julia, my electricity went off. It came back on a short time ago, so now I'm trying to catch up with everyone.

I was in an ice storm, too, but I stayed home, because I slipped around on my front porch as I was getting my mail out of my mailbox. I hope your ankle improves soon, and you won't need your crutches by next week. Happy WOYWW on Thursday from #1.
