I'm Love Sick

Hello friends.  I hope you're having a great week so far.  Only one more day till the weekend ... yeah!  I have an unusual Valentine card to share with you today :)


This adorable image is Nurse and she's one of Mo's fabulous images.  My daughter is a nurse so when I saw this image I just had to have it and finally found some time to color this sweetie.  I thought this would make a great Valentine card for her to give to her sweetheart.  Definitely not your typical Valentine card, right?  I colored this little nurse and her teddy with Distress Inks.  I used a doily, some ribbon, a button, and some pearls.  My sentiment is from a My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp set and I thought it was perfect for this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by. 

Hugs, Anita

Hi Anita, what a brilliant card! Such a sweet image and a very unique reason for it - the best reason, I think, for making a card is to make it personal!

Fab colouring, as always.
