A Great Big Thank You!

Good Morning Blog land!
As it's the Team B's turn to inspire you over at The Crafty Pad this week, 
I thought I would share another "Thank You" card with you!
This was made for the same lovely lady who asked for the small 
"Thank You" cards a little while back!
This card is entirely different! 
It was to be for all of the Ward Staff who cared for her during 
a prolonged stay in Ward 6 at The Western General Hospital in Edinburgh!
The request was for a "great big card with nurses & beds etc!"
As you can see, Pink is fast becoming my favourite colour at the moment! lol

Well, I couldn't find many digis'of hospital beds, 
but I did find one at Bugaboo!
In fact all the digi's on this card came from Bugaboo!
They're just great to colour up!
The card is an Anita's A4 Card Blank the quality is great & the 
envelope that came with it is really sturdy too!

It was lot of space to cover but I found I was running out of space 
for all the ward staff around on this one! Lol

Each of the images was coloured with Promarkers & is coloured up to 
represent the various members of ward staff who looked after this special lady!
For the glasses, & anything made of glass, I added a little 3d glaze.

The design paper is a digital freebie that I picked up a long time ago.
It was designed by Joanne Barsby!
I also used a plain pink lightweight card stock to matt everything onto!
I cut out the images with various nesties & added a couple of small 
panels with ribbon wrapped around just to break things up a little.
The centre panel is the same as the smaller cards I made!
I added some punched leaves which I embossed, some mulberry paper roses
& the obligatory Breast Cancer Awareness pink ribbon!

I added a little decoration to the inside of the card!
Thanks for popping in! I hope you like it!
I'm off to Feline Playful to check if this baby fits any of the

  10. Dawn, This is fantastic! Love all the Bugaboo images. You certainly hit the nail into the post with this Thank You card. My DIL, a nurse, sent me back a message (when I sent your blog post link to her) -- tell the lady who had been i hospital that nurses never get thank you cards, and she's wonderful for even thinking of it. So, outside appreciation from a nurse for your card, too. :-D

  11. Fab collection of images and such pretty colours, thanks for sharing at PanPastel UK.
