This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVER CHALLENGE # 376 - Paper Piecing and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 169 - It's Time for Chic.
I am playing catch up so this is also for Friday's QUEEN FOR THE DAY CHALLENGE # 111 - gbedwright where I CASED Betty's CONGRATS, THE BEST IS YET TO COMEcard. I love the way she does her bows and will NEVER even get close to a great CASE when it comes to her talented gallery but at least give me an "A" for effort.
My layout is from Saturday's SWEET STOP SKETCH CHALLENGE # 157 which was a perfect layout for the card I choose from Betty's gallery. I love it when a plan comes together.
As for Chic, there is nothing like those cheeky gals from The greeting farm. I love this nurse and paper pieced her uniform and stockings. They are 2 shades of pink just alike. I made a 4x4 card which is unusual for me. I stamped the sentiment on a light pink cs. I am not sure I would let this cutie pie play nurse with my darling hubby but she is adorable isn't she?
Hope you like it now off to work. I am wishing I was back at the beach.

What a fun and chic nurse this is. What great paper piecing.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
