A card from the files...

I've scheduled this post as I'm seeing my pain specialist consultant today and there's a chance that he might do some more trigger point injections where they inject local anaesthetic into the trigger points of muscles to interrupt the expected pain message. Last time he did them it affected my motor skills for 24hrs, I whacked myself in the face trying to itch my nose and let's not even mention trying to get a cup of coffee to my mouth!
This is a super quick card that I don't think I've blogged yet. I got a text message one evening to say that a colleague's partner had given birth and could I make a card for the next day as we hadn't known the sex of the baby before she was born. Hunkydory kit to the rescue. I trimmed down one of the coordinating background papers to fit on a 5x7 card blank and used a layer of rainbow mirri card behind it. I popped the topper on and added a few flowers from my stash and cut some Marianne foliage out of the rainbow mirri card to finish it off. Very quick and simple but well received.
