Paging Nurse Margaret....

Hello and happy Thursday! Ok, I'm trying to stay positive. It's cold and rainy and windy today. Supposed to be like that thru the weekend. So what did I do? I made cards! Muahahaha! This is based on Mojo Monday #314. Also, since I used die cuts, I'm entering this at Designed to Color #21: use die cuts:
ETA: I'm also entering this in the Catch the Bug - Anything Goes challenge!

Here is the inside. Lurves me a great punch line! HA!

Based on this sketch:

Yes, I am mailing this to someone! LOL! (Don't worry, they have a sense of humor. It's mandatory in my family, really. ☺)

Nurse Margaret was stamped, colored, and fussy cut then adhered with foam squares. I used die cuts for the circle panel and the sentiment panel. The ribbon is from my stash. I think it was tied around a birthday gift from a few years ago, and I saved the ribbon. It's sort of a nod to candy stripers.

Well, time to go take my fur baby for a short walk in the rain. Oh the smell of Ode d'Wet Dog...yuck! Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!
