Every one needs a little encouragement at times. Especially a new Nurse. I am working with a lot of new GN’s and another round is due to graduate very soon. I couldn’t possibly find the time to make a card for each of them, so I will place this card in our break room at work for all of them.
Here is my card I created for Beate’s wsc#45
I just love Boyd’s bears. I’m not a collector, but I think they are adorable. I don’t live far from Gettysburg…which means visits to Boyd’s Bear Country. A fun place to visit with the kids. I’ll skip out on the history part any day and go right for the fun.
I have had this stamp, Clara the Nurse for about 10 years. I actually purchased it when I graduated nursing school and made my own graduation invites for my Mother to send out. I did a search and couldn’t find any info on it (I don’t browse ebay, but maybe it’s there somewhere). The sentiment is from MFT Essential Sentiments set and the dots stamped in Versamark ink on the piece of Bordering Blue CS is from MFT Behind the Scenes set.
I wanted the card to appear worn and ragged like the image. After the image was colored, I distressed, sponged, and wrinkled it up. I then applied Ranger Crackle Accents to it. The background base piece of CS was created with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint. I mixed together Old Paper and Vintage Photo to get the color I wanted. I added some twill tape and buttons to coordinate with the image.
Head on over to these blogs to check out more samples created for the wsc:
Have a wonderful weekend!
