Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Good morning! I made a Get Well card for my friend, Stacey, last week. Poor dear took a tumble and hurt her knee. That's not fun.  When I was a teenager, I hurt my knee pretty badly snow skiing. Someone ran into me from behind, and we tumbled a bit. I remember getting knocked, and then I remember opening my eyes wondering if anything was broken and if I could move. I was able to get back up and ski the rest of the way down the mountain, but I was done after that. Nothing was broken for me, and no ligaments were torn, but my knee was stiff, swollen, and extremely painful for weeks. To this day it still bothers me going up and down stairs. So when I heard Stacey hurt her knee, I felt her pain, and got a card on the way to her right away.

  1. Very nice card Janis - I do not like PAIN - I hurt my knee exercising - and I was laid up for 6 months! I had a tear! I am back to exercising again - and hoping I do not tear anything - have a great day!

  2. Janis, This so stinking adorable. I love how you personalized it with the white pen. I have this cartridge and haven't used it yet. I feel so inspired, thanks for sharing! :)
