The Vein Whisperer

I love today's card, because it's humorous.  That's my all time favorite type of card to make  I kept my card simple, because I didn't want to distract from the image.  The fun sentiment which says, "The Vein Whisperer", is a freebie from Create with TLC.  (I think I'll make this into a wall hanging and take it to the lab next time I get my blood drawn.)  The nurse image is by Just Inklined.  Read below about this special image.

This is just one of numerous digital images donated by 14 companies as a fundraiser for Katie Renz.  Katie is
a fellow crafter, who was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer in December.  She is undergoing
Chemotherapy. Jak Heath has put together a wonderful fund raiser to benefit Katie and her family.  It's awesome to see our crafting community coming together to help like this. Please check out the fund raiser and help if you are able to. And please, please pray each day for Katie and her family.

Challenges:
Crafty Pad
One Stitch At A Time
Stampin' Sisters In Christ
All three of the challenges I'm entering have a "New" theme.  The new thing I used on my card is my nurse stamp.  I used it for two reason.  1. I just love it. 2. I wanted to get the word out about the fund raiser for Katie and I thought this would be an eye catching card.

Blessings
  • My sweet, sweet hubby made me some delicious homemade macaroni & cheese with soy cheese and rice milk, because I'm lactose intolerant.
  • Extra time with my hubby today.
  • Answered prayer. God cares no matter how small or large our need.
Have a terrific day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly

When I first laid eyes on your card I really had to laugh out loud, it's so funny! But then I read the story behind it and so it even gets more depth now. Well done!!
