My zombie toe and new challenge at Lia Stampz

I've had a smashed toe for about 5 years now.  It was ugly and discolored and honestly, I didn't think much of it because a couple of coats of pink nail polish made it look pretty normal.  LOL.  Anywho, the other night I stubbed it pretty bad and it ended up bleeding.  I went to go get it checked out by my doctor... she had to remove my toenail!!!  I was pretty sad about it.  I ended up watching part of the procedure and it looked like a Halloween special.  So now I have a zombie toe.  Bloodied, bruised, and missing a nail.  The worst part about it?  It hurts like H E double hockey sticks and I can't walk on it until Saturday.  The best part about it?  The husband is babying me and I get to eat whatever I want. :) Just today I had nachos, a teri burger, french fries, a salted caramel mocha from Starbucks, and his famous pizza pockets (made in a 1980's Snackster!) Hopefully I don't gain 20 lbs while rocking the zombie.

Anywho, it's good enough now (2 days since it happened) that I can hop to my computer and elevate it while I type.  Hooray! Which means I can tell you all about Lia Stampz' new challenge! Anything Goes plus a sentiment!

Here's my card using the digi called Winner:

Inked him up with Copics.  Paper is from a Making Memories scrapbook pack.  Cardstock and ribbon by SU.  I used a clear stamp from Impression Obsession to stamp the Congratulations across the finish line. :) I thought I was so clever.  LOL.  

Can't wait to see what you guys create!  And watch out for those toes!

Too funny that we are on the same wavelength again! Well, your circumstances aren't funny, but you know what I mean! :) How nice that your hubby is tending to you. What a great guy! But, yeah -- if you get a chance, check out that show. Soooooo many people are talking about! I just never have been into zombies, but apparently, the WRITING in this show is excellent??? I guess it's worth an episode or two at least!

This is such a fun card! I love the stars, and the cute mouse makes me think of Angelina Ballerina! =)

Yikes...there's something about losing a nail that just makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Anyones thats cut their nail too short knows how this hurts.

Oh, ouch!! I feel your toe pain. I've broken both big toes. One has chips in it and it cracks when I bend it. The other I fractured and dislocated at the same time and had to have surgery. Now it doesn't bend at all and it has a big scar across it :P So I still have my toenails, but the toes themselves are pretty ugly :) But yay being waited on!! :)

I love your awesome card!! That little guy is a winner :)
