Stitching Here and There ...
First of all, I used my new-all-time-fave stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge, to splatter the background of BOTH creations (have a feeling I am gonna campaign that this set NEVER retire!)! Second, I sewed ... with an actual-honest-to-goodness-real-life sewing machine on both creations as well (hence, the oh-so-punny reference to "common threads"). Sometimes I think that adding sewing just makes the card look more "legit" for some reason ...
And what's not to LOVE about a Coastal-Cabana-Colored Chameleon??? I am in LOVE with this little guy!! Makes me happy ...

Spent a BOATLOAD of time at the local "running store" yesterday trying to figure out what I can do about my nasty-ol' shin splints ... came home MUCH poorer with a new pair of shoes (which, I understand, happens QUITE often when you run every day!), TWO pairs of compression sleeves (fancy and colorful!) and a foam roller contraption that helps me pinpoint the muscles affected by shin splints and gives them a trigger-point, deep-tissue massage (it really hurts ... and feels awesome ... at the same time!)!! Headed out here in a few moments to try everything out! Wish me luck!!
