Nurses' Week

Happy Mother's Day! If you are a mother I wish you all the best today. May your kids remember you today. So far I've heard from two of my three. My daughter and SIL gave me a dozen roses earlier this week and then announced that she will be a new Mom also. We are cautiously optimistic.  We lost her first son last November after birth. We are praying for a healthy baby this time around. My youngest son sent me a set of Yankee Candles. They smell so good. I;m waiting to hear from my middle boy. He'll probably call sometime today.
The new challenge is up and running at The Outlawz CAS challenge. This week is Nurses week and our hostess, Deb, is a nurse. So she picked get well cards for us as the challenge.


I used the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday. The image is this week's Friday Freebie at Bugaboo called Nurse - Get Better. So hop on over to get this free digi this week. The background paper is from Create with TLC. I loved the mixture of colors and the textured feel it has. Then I tried to match some of the more subtle colors of the background with the other elements. I colored the nurse with Bic markers. Die cut her using the Spellbinder's Hearts and inked the inside using Seedless Preserves distress ink. The BandAid sentiment was a freebie from Stamping with Gail. She hasn't updated her blog recently.


I hope you will join us for this get well CAS challenge at The Outlawz. The design team really made some great cards! Our prize this time is an envelope full of crafting goodies. Lots of fun new things to use.
I am entering these challenges:
For all the Moms out there, wishing you the best day ever.

Your nurse card is simply adorable and great take on the sketch with the bandaid sentiment. Like that blue background. So happy for your family about the new addition & prayers that ALL will be well. I know you all must be so excited and what a special way to celebrate Mother's Day. Hugs & TFS (BTW, is the replacement for retiring, or just changing to a new position?)

Fun card for Nurses week! That is a neat layout, and love the image in the heart, and your sponging around the edge : ) And, hope you had a great Mother's Day as well. Congrats on the good news, and yes, it will be a pregnancy with lots of prayers by all I imagine, but think positive! I will say prayers for you all!
