Cantilever card

Just when I am up to my eyes in cards for extra lessons and a workshop, I have orders coming in as well. Thankfully, today at our card group, we did a cantilever card, which turned out to be appropriate for one of the orders. For those of you who haven't done one before, I have added a picture of the inside.

A card for Mother in Law

I feel a bit guilty in not producing something a little more special for my favourite MiL.
However, the Kanban sheets are so pretty that I couldn't resist making one up.

For those that are following the progress of my knee, I am currently having physio at 9 am every day! It is extremely hard to get out of bed so early each day to get there on time, and Mike is suffering too as he is taking me in case of any twinges afterwards....hey if I have to get up so early so does he too! lol
I am not sure if it is coincidence or the physio, but I think it is getting fractionally straighter, so keep everything crossed for me please?

A couple of cards......

...... that I did for class.
I haven't done any iris folding cards for ages, so was quite pleased with how this dress turned out. (It is a pattern from the new Coppernob book)
The pink card is a folded double pocket card...great fun to do when you can remember which way to fold it!

I had to make a card for my great nephew's birthday and was having a hard job thinking of an idea. Then, when I posted the previous card for my neice, I thought I could work it along the same line. I also remembered that my nephew - Charlie's Dad, had let me onto his Facebook page where there were lots of photos of Charlie, so it was a shame not to make use of them.
I hope he won't mind having his face all over his card!

I saw the physiotherapy consultant last night, and I'm going to have 24 sessions over the next 8 weeks. I asked him how hopeful he was that it would improve my current state and he wasn't that positive in his comments. I think it may be a matter of too little too late.
Still, after all the time that I spent on crutches , and suffering a broken rib, I am going to give it my best shot, do everything I'm instructed to and hopefully get some benefit out of it.
I think this maybe a good time to buy paracetamol shares!

I haven't had chance to make a card the last few days, so I'm putting up a Blue Peter card instead. It was made for my niece's birthday.

What a day!

I had a hospital appointment at mid-day, so arrived there at 11.30. I was in with the consultant at 11.33 and back in his room again after having an x-ray at far so good. He is going to give me a course of physiotherapy and then if that doesn't improve things, we will start to discuss a new knee. Hurray, at last someone who realises that although I'm too young in medical thoughts to have a new one, life is passing me by and now is really a good time to have it. Straight from the hospital to my card class. I gave the ladies quite a challenge today as they have never done any floral punch craft before. The card here is the one that they did, but I also was challenged as I had a new student in the class - one who had never done any crafting before. Poor lady was mortified when she realised what her first card would be, but we got there in the end.
