So, I was perusing the Craft Your Passion site and saw they are hosting a challenge to make an "occupational" themed card. Well, I couldn't resist. So, what profession did I choose? Well, it was a toss-up between mortician and nurse. Since I don't have any mortician stamps, I went with nurse. Ok, ok, ok...so I lied...when it comes to crafting a profession, there is only ONE choice for me. After all, I was a pediatric nurse for a quarter of a century.
Nursing it is. I took one look at this hilarious stamp from Bugaboo and knew I had to feature her. Her name is Stella. She's old, she's cranky, she has grey hair with purple highlights, and her boobs live in another zip code.
I altered the stamp a bit (removed the hospital gown she was holding) and added the cute little mummy. I made the card look all sweet and innocent and pretty...that is until you read it. Hee hee hee. Now, I would NEVER say/do anything like what she did to her patient...I'd be thinking it, but I wouldn't have the where-with-all to carry it out.
Stella, gotta love her curmudgeon-ness.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
