Happy Birthday Mama Nurse
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sweet Sketch 41
Sponsor: Digi Stamp Boutique

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Thought I had better add a little green to my blog today!
This was such a fun card to create. It is a birthday card for my daughter who is a nurse and is expecting her first child. I tired to make the nurse's apron look like it was poochy by shading it darker but I didn't do a very good job so you probably wouldn't even notice. But it is the thought that counts! My daughter is an ER nurse and loves every minute of her job. I can ask her a simple question about anything medical and she can spout off for a good two hours about every little detail. Sometimes I have no clue what she is even saying ... but I am happy that she is well versed in her field!
I thought this image, Nurse Suzie, from Digi Stamp Boutique would make a perfect birthday card for my daughter. Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Sally Ann is so talented with her images. You will love every one. So take some time to check out her shop. And play along with us this week at SSW. Go ahead and get some inspiration from our DT.
