Sunburst Cards & Update

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Today I have just a very quick update then I need to get moving.

I recently borrowed my friends Sunburst Thinlit Die and at that point I realized we needed the matching stamp set to go with it! So I jumped online and ordered it. This is what I made with it so far but for now since I probably won't be stamping too much with hubby home, I left my friend borrow the stamp set to go with her Thinlit. I did not think i'd like it but I really do!

Sunburst Card Set:

Stamps: Sunburst Sayings
Ink: Basic Black Archival
Cardstock: Neenah White, Whisper White, Hello Honey, Basic Black, Gold Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Sunburst Thinlit, Circle & Scallop Circle Punches, Dimensional, 2 Sided Tape

So Shawn had his surgery bright & early yesterday!
All went well except for the hour or so wait at CVS just to get his pain medication filled. I was less than amused with that place! I may even switch my meds over to another place after that fiasco!! Anyways, his surgery was less than 40 mins to do a Plantar Fasciotomy. The surgical place did a wonderful job and he was on his way shortly after. Everyone was very friendly and so helpful. His pain level today isn't bad and he's so far not had any pain meds. He's up walking on his foot but not over doing it. The swelling has come down. Tomorrow I can take the bandages off and clean up his foot and place bandaids on the incisions then he will not have to put the foot brace back on but instead have to wear his shoes with the inserts in. No barefoot!! He will return to see the doctor next Tuesday and the following week have the stitches out.  He's quite pleased and hopes this takes care of the pain he's had for months in his feet. Now to find something to occupy his time while being off is another story! He looks bored already! Haha! He is talking about going fishing next week as long as the weather stays nice. Yesterday we hit 80 degrees! 

Just wanted to say a huge Thank You for all the prayers and well wishes for Shawn. 
We so appreciate your kindness!

That's all I have for today!
Thank you for stopping by & have a great day!

Glad Shawn's surgery went well! Love those cards! That set never did anything for me but looking at your cards, I just may have to get it! :)

I like your cheery, sunny cards! Very nicely done.

This brings back memories for me. Hubby broke his foot in three places...(Playing football at a family picnic many years ago) He was out of work for 12 weeks. It was kind of tough for me, because he wasn't even allowed to walk on his leg for four weeks. Yikes! But, fortunately, he's someone who loves to read, and our daughter was off school for the summer and helped out somewhat, and the two of them played board games every day.
