A Nurse, A Challenge and Blog Hop Info!

Thursday, October 8, 2009

A happy Thursday morning to you all!

I have to share a funny little story with you that happened yesterday. When I went to pick up Syd from daycare/preschool she was out in the yard playing with her classmates. Syd's teacher asked to see her school pictures because I had just picked up the proofs. Anyway, a friend of Syd's rushes over and askes to see the pictures too. So I showed him and the teacher says to the little boy "Who's that in the picture?" He says Sydney, to which my Sassy McSasspants replies "Hello?? I'm standing right in front of you!?!" Sarcasism is alive and well in my not yet 4 and a half year old. I smell trouble in her tweens, don't you??

Today's card is for all the nurses graduating this year. As I was putting this card together I remembered that I had already used the 'get well soon' sentiment on the other Nurse Sophie card I made, so I racked my brain and decided that this would be a graduation card instead! :D (How's that for thinking on the run?! haha)

The sketch is from this week's Inspirational Sketches challenge IC#37. It's a very special challenge this week because Miss Mary is now a part of the IC design team!! Way to go Mary! Woohoooo! I'm so proud of you! I colored up Nurse Sophie with reinkers and an aquapainter brush and used some scraps of that great Cosmo Cricket paper I still had lying around.
