Get Well Soon Card

Hello my friends!
Today's blog is a card that I made.  
I had this cute C.C. Designs Nurse Nora image
that I just had to color up.  She is too cute!
My youngest daughter inspired this card as she
is spending the last two years of high school taking 
college level nurse's aide training.  She will be a 
certified nursing assistant when she graduates 
high school.  I am so proud of her for wanting to 
become a nurse.  She will then take nursing at
college after she graduates, but she will be so much
further along than the other students just starting nursing.

So here is the cute card.... I hope you like it!

Hope you all have a happy scrappy day!!

Well it has been over a year since my last post. A lot has happened in my personal life. I lost my Mom on March 28, 2013 and then my older sister, Teresa on September 11, 2013. I cannot tell you how bad that was losing them both so close to each other. They were a huge part of my life and I feel like a part of me died with them. It is coming up on the year anniversary of my sister's death and I miss them both so very much! I just wanted to let you all know why I have not been creating. I lost my mojo for a very long time. I am slowly getting it back and I want to start posting here again. I want to start doing challenges more with cards. I love making them and want to show you all my creations. The next post will have a card I made. See you all in the next post! Hugs, Leslie
