Way to Go Sharon!

Good morning to you and I hope you are well this Wednesday morning, if not I wish you a speedy recovery!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter.  This challenge will be slightly different as it will last for two weeks and the DT will not do any commenting this will enable us to have a bit of a break for summer - thank you Paper Shelter!!  The theme for this will be Anything Goes!!

A while ago a friend of mine rang me up and asked to come and see me.  She used to work alongside me when I was a Ward Manager and she was my Ward Clerk.  She is a lovely and caring person always with a smile on her face and I always used to say why don't you take up nursing but she always said she couldn't do it.  Anyway when she came to see me it was to ask for a reference to apply to become a Nurse! I was over the moon and think she'll make a brilliant nurse.  So my card today I have made for Sharon:


I have used Paper Shelter Cute Nurses available here I thought it would be perfect for her. Excellent value as you get two nurse images both coloured and not coloured and backing papers!  I have coloured my image in with Copics to look like Sharon and added Glossy Accents to the bottle.  The papers are Nitwits Tour of London.  Dies used are Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles, Dienamics Photo Corner which have been spritzed with October Afternoon Sprinkles (to look like blood lol) and Cheery Lynn Burlap (to look like bandage).  The sentiment I did on my computer.

As usual we have a fabulous prize up for offer:


Please go over to The Paper Shelter Challenge to see what the rest of the fabulously talented team have done!  You have two weeks to enter this so get cracking!!

Challenges I would like to enter:

ABC Challenge - Roses are Red (I have used the colour Red)
Scrap It Girl - Red White and Blue
Creative Creations - Anything Goes
Love to Create - Hugs and Wishes
Marker Pop - Lovely Locks
Melonheadz Friends - Lots of Circles

That's if for me, we have a friend and her little three year old daughter coming for lunch today.  The plan was for her to paddle in the paddling pool but not sure if the weather is going to play games today! Thank you so much for looking - take care xx
