Happy Nurse's Week !! My card for all my Fellow Nurses !!

Hi Everyone !  

           Sorry I have been away for so long. I have been really busy between working, crafting, family, and those dreaded Continuing Education Classes !!  All my nursing buddies know what I am talking about.... But - the good news is, that now I am FINISHED !!  Yippee !!  No more classes for at least the next 2 years.
           A few of my cohorts received a card like this which is made from the Magnolia Stamps "Tilda" collection and this is called "Nurse Tilda" . I made her in a variety of hair colors to try to match up with the recipient's hair color (well...at least the color they are applying to it ! ha ha !)
          I was so lucky to have run across these cute little brads of a nurse's cap and stethoscope to add to the cards. Located at JoAnns.com . The colors were done with my favorite SPECTRUM NOIR pens....and simply paper layering with papers from my stash. I particularly liked the blue/white striped paper, as it reminded me of my Student Nurse uniforms and caps. sigh...... memories of my youth ! The card is layered with foam tape but you cannot tell from the photo. Also, I found some lace with a tiny blue ribbon running through it that was so perfect and used it for the bow.
         Inside the card is a sentiment that I thought of and simply printed out on the computer, which all nurses would understand............
      "What did YOU want to be when you grew up ?"  

Blessings to All of my Crafty Friends (even the non-nurses !)   Love,  Barbara
