The bear is die cut using the Sizzix "Get Well" die set and I used Prismacolor pencils and OMS to shade his feet and tummy. He was popped up on the red scallop and blue rectangle Nestie layers using dimensionals. I added three silver brads and a white twill bow. If you have every had a hospital gown on, you would recognized the twill tape used for tying it closed, or should I say try to tie it closed, lol! Next I printed out the sentiment "I need a nurse, do you know where I can find one?" on my printer and layered it onto a red scallop Nestie. The colors are not showing well and the navy and dark brown look black, I need to get better lighting!
On the inside of the card I made a bookmark for her to use. Again, I used the rectangle and scallop rectangle Nesties to make the base layers. On this base I put the nurse die cut from the same Sizzix set as the bear. Finishing the bookmark with four silver brads and a twill ribbon with red punch hearts. The inside of the card has the answer to the sentiment on the front and says "Calling Nurse Appel", "Calling Nurse Appel".
While I was making this card, my husband was out riding his off road bicycle and came in just before I finished it. I asked him how he liked it. He gave me a funny look and I thought "was it that bad?" He said, "Well, I think I need one." I new exactly what he was talking about because on New Years Day he and Rachel had gone out riding bikes and he came home hurt from a fall and had a separated shoulder! Ewew, it creeped me out looking at it!
So, when he told me that he needed a nurse I knew we were going to go back to the ER. He fell on the SAME SHOULDER!!!!! It was just starting to heal! This time he fractured his scapula, something the E.R. Dr. said was hard to do, and tore the shoulder even more! He is officially grounded from his bike! We are waiting for to get into a ortho dr. to see what needs to be done to it. He signed the card saying he does need a nurse and I hope this "prophetic" card brightens my daughters day despite her daddy's injury! See, I knew all that money we spent sending her to become a nurse would be well spent and having a nurse in the family would come in handy one day. I just didn't think it would be so soon!
