***I also must tell you that Phebe has been chosen to sell the new stamps that are out called:

Have you heard of them? Have you seen them???

WELL I just happen to have one made into a card for you today to see.....

I fell in love with this little nurse LOL! She reminded me of long ago nursery stories when I was a young girl - we won't go into details of when that was LOL LOL

So I did the card up so it would look a bit old and used.
The DP is Basic Grey : Bittersweet
Matching red card stock - Off white card stock.
I used my Coluzzle to cut the image with because I only have the small oval Nestibilities :o(
I copied the definition of NURSE out of an old dictionary and typed it on off white Card Stock in brown ink. Then I set up to destroy it to look old; using my scissors, tearing it, wrinkling it all up, sanding, and then using brown ink to touch it up here and there and then dropping some alcohol ink on it - I used Tim Holtz Ranger products.
Copics were used to colour the image and I used crystal lacquer on her shoes.

Here she is :


and. yes the definition is on crooked on purpose.

Here is a closer look:


Here she is up close:




I sure hope you have enjoyed this little card today. Be sure to get in touch with Phebe at the

Be seeing you real soon with more of Phebe's stamps.
Have a great weekend everyone.....
Love Candy

That is such a cute card. The little squirrel is adorable and I never would have thought of the definition idea! It really looks like you tore it out of an old book. Awesome job!
