Monday Montage #197

I am STILL on the sitting train ... which would make you think that I had TONS of time for crafting, right? I have entered week THREE of crutches. Stitches come out Tuesday and I am HOPING and PRAYING that I will be downgraded to one crutch (NO crutches would ne GREAT!)! It has been difficult for me to sit with my foot unpropped, and sitting in a chair with my foot propped on another chair gets uncomfortable very quickly. Don't get me wrong ... I am THRILLED to be on THIS SIDE of surgery and on my way to healed. Patience is HARD, isn't it?? I did make myself sit and make a card for this week's Monday Montage hop ... things are improving!

Forever Grapevine! You GUYS!!! I luuuuuurve this stamp set and dies!! I used some of my Stampin' Blends to color in the leafy grapevine image that I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Whisper White embossing powder. I likey!
