*An Update and Sketch Challenge #124*

First, an update on my foot. I did go to the Drs yesterday. I was sent for an Xray as a precaution, but the Dr is pretty sure I didn't do anything more than pull a ligament. Apparently there is a ligament that some people have (it's evolving out or something) that runs from just above the outside ankle on to the top of the foot. It's not really needed for anything. He figures I tore it when I fell. I'll find out about the Xrays today or tomorrow.

The treatment for now is rest, ice, elevation and Ibuprofen. I figure I'll take it easy again today and then re-evaluate tomorrow. It's still sore, but so far not as bad as it was yeterday.

But I sure miss sitting on my right foot!

Thanks to everyone for their comments and emails about it yesterday. Sounds like foot-sitting is a pretty common occurrence!

As I said yesterday, I did a lot of playing late last week with the Sketch Challenges over at Splitcoast. Some of them are more difficult to get inspiration from, some are easier. Some of them you just like more than others.

#124 happened to catch my eye, but I found it difficult to come up with an idea of my own for it. I started with the sketch, then chose my colours, then added the images to it. It took a while to come together but I am pleased with the results.

items used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Rose Red and Whisper White
*Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up! in Almost Amethyst and Certainly Celery
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black, Rose Red
*Images: A*Muse
*Embellishments: bling from Michaels
