Just What The Doctor Ordered


Phew! What a crazy day at work! Soooooo much stuff going off that I'm finding it hard to remember to breathe in and out LOL!

Anyways, after my crazy day I came home to find a nice little package containing a little something to help me de-stress. I just had to have this stamp set (Doctor's Orders) from Taylored Expressions - it's sooooooo cute! (Acutally it's a belated Easter gift from my bf!)

I'm pretty sure that any doctor would order me to stamp after the day I've had LOL! So by being good and following doctor's orders, I've had a little stamp (which is a rarety during the working week!) and a play and this is just a little something I came up with:

Nothing super duper but for a 15min job I'm kinda liking it! The card was based on this sketch from the Jen Del Muro Saturday Sketch.

I'm hoping to have a proper play this weekend with this set. That is, after a 9mile walk I'm doing to raise funds for Breast Cancer! (A charity really close to my heart after losing both family and friend in the last year to the illness.) My friends have decided we all need to make a material corsage with pink in it somewhere so we feel a 'group identity'! I'm actually panicking slightly at the prospect of me trying to sew - I did consider cheating and making a paper one (after all, I do consider myself a paper-crafter!) but then if it rains it'll be all soggy! Oh well, whatever I create I'll be sure to post it here for a giggle LOL!

love love LOVE it!!!! I have a few of these TE stamp sets and they're so fun! I'm thinking about getting the man set she released with this one (a good golf image which will be handy!) I adore the colours you've used - sure to cheer up someone who's feeling under the weather!

You're a star to do the walk - could I sponsor you? Let me know how, can just send a cheque if you want - such a great cause. Good luck with it! Hugs K xxx

Oh cute, cute, cute!
Lovely colouring and those cuppies have made the cutest card!! Gorgeous!

Alison said...

PS, forgot to make this suggestion for the 'corsage' - what about pink ribbon roses? You could just use torn strips of fabric instead of ribbon to be economical? Nicci posted this on her blog
Hope this might be helpful, Alison, xx
