Ooops I Did it Again!!!!

Good morning my lovely crafty friends. Hope you've had a wonderful weekend. 
For me it was a weekend of highs and lows - Saturday was fabulous - did a lovely 6 mile walk with  my DH in glorious sunshine along the canal path then had a little crafty in my little crafty haven......... but as the post title says - on Sunday I decided to go for another walk in the morning with my DH but just a short walk down to Starbucks for a coffee when Ooopps I took a bad step into a pothole and yes completely twisted my still not completely healed ankle - I can assure you that 'ooopps' wasn't the word that immediately sprang to mind. 
Seriously the pain at the time was excruciating - it actually made me feel physically sick :o(

Anyway so here I am again with my ankle the size of an orange but I can just about walk on it - my DH got my a support sock which does help.

Today I thought I would share another of my Home Decor items I have been busy stocking up on - this is a Chalkboard Countdown to Santa Coming:

So here's what I used:

2 MDF Hearts from the MDF Man - small one painted with Chalkboard Paint
Large one painted on reverse with Indigo Blu 'Postbox Red' Acrylic Paint and then covered with Craftwork Cards 'Magic of Christmas' Design Paper
Memory Box 'Frostyville Wreath - die cut in white and then black to create a shadow.
Sentiment: Miss Kate Cuttables SVG that I converted in my Scan n Cut :o)
Gingham Ribbon and Adhesive Pearls from stash

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for popping by today.
Hope to catch up with you all later this evening whilst sitting with my foot up!!!

Have a fabulous day.

This is fabulous Debs, such a brilliant idea and I love your papers.
Sorry to hear about your ankle - you will just have to rest it and perhaps do a little crafting!

Hi Debbs.
Oh no what are you like.
Just to let you know, when I twisted my ankle (fell down stairs) I put it up on a stool (higher than hip hight, that's important) and KEPT it up for two days. I know it's boring and you always have stuff to do, but it works so much quicker if you can try and do it, and it's only two days, better than it taking weeks to heel.
Gorgeous hearts, love the chalkboard one on top, nice idea. I have these papers, not used them yet, very nice. Get well soon, and REST IT. Debbiex

Oh I like this and what a fabulous idea! Omg Deb, I can't believe you've done your ankle again, I think you should stay locked away in your craft room (safe from harm!) Hope it starts to feel better soon.

Dare I say 'take care'!?
