Default Please help me thank my son's nurses...

OK... this is my last ditch effort. I posted on the General Stamping board but didn't get an replies so I'm hoping to catch the eye of someone over here.

I'm making domino keychains for my son's oncology nurses for the holidays (my son is 4 and has Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, is in remission but still has 1.5 years of treatment left).

Can anyone point me to a stamp that meets most of the following criteria? Warning - it's a tall order!!

1. A heart with wings (my first choice) OR
2. An angel, but one that is simple and is more whimsical/funky than traditional
3. Small enough for a domino (this is a must)
4. Clear would be ideal, but um rubber or wm is fine too.

I have an adorable stamp with a heart with angel wings, but the outline is just a little too bold. Also, there are other images on the rubber, so I'll have to hand-color for each stamp (I'll be making about 25-35 dominos).

For what it's worth, I'll be attaching a gift tag that reads - "How do you thank an angel?"

So there it is? Can anyone make my day and give me some guidance??

Thanks so much!!!

Debbie

You might check out the Angel set in the Close to My Heart catalog!
It is an outline stamp and kind of whimsical!

this set has a heart with wings and also has separate hearts and a separate set of wings so you could make your own design.

this set has a small angel image that I think would fit on a domino -- it also has a nice sentiment that might work for your project "sometimes our guardian angels come to us in the form of a friend."

Prayers for a full recovery for your child.

Also check out Elzybels through Amuse Art Stamps. They have lots of angels and sentiments too for angels. The stamps sold through the US are smaller than the ones from the UK so they may fit and they are definitely not traditional.

My prayers to your family. I've been through Hodgkins with my husband and may be facing it again.
