Nurse Tilda

My boss/friend had a stroke while kayaking. It is really quite the miracle that he lived as he had to be floated down rapids on a raft, carried up a hill by eight men, taken by atv to ambulance and then life flighted to hours away to the hospital. He is going to be alright - no lasting problems as long as he follows orders. So this card is for him.


Tilda is colored with copics. The paper is from basic grey's june bug collection. The bird is from the basic bird stamp set by the angel company - I added the eye and wing with my wonderful drawing abilities. lol. Only paper is used - the flowers are paper stickers from the paper collection as is the "ribbon". 
Here is the inside using another sticker from the collection.

I made this card for a couple of challenges.
Only paper for Magnolisious Highlights here.
And for the layout at Magnolia Lovers here.
Hope you enjoy.

Peggie, I love the nurse card. My daughter is an RN and she would love it. Hey, could I send you some $ (paypal) and have you send me a few stamped images (whatever fits on one sheet is fine.) Or I guess it would cost about the same to buy the stamp, but where do I get it?
