Mahjong - the cure for a sprained ankle...

Mahjong-the-cure

The reason why I spend so much time with the nephews and niece is because my mother, brother and sister-in-law are obsessed with playing mahjong. Yep, we are all "mahjong-trained" in this family to stave off Alzheimer's disease...*LOL* I'm what you call the "filler" player, taking over when someone else has to leave....we don't play with money though, just chips and the one-week glory of being the big winner!


So when my mother sprained her ankle for the very first time....we proposed playing mahjong to take her mind off the pain...


It worked like a charm! She didn't complain about the pain until the game ended. Mahjong - the cure for a sprained ankle. *winks*

I was inspired by the sketch at Skissedilla.

Supplies: Basic Grey patterned papers, American Crafts thickers, Ranger distress stains, Jenni Bowlin letter sticker, tags, buttons, pearls, brown pen, thread, butterfly embellishment.

*Edited* I am the winner over at Skissedilla! :)
