Seize the Birthday #188

The folks at the Seize the Birthday challenge are doing something a bit different this time around.  Their current theme is Seize the Heros. With so many wonderful companies offering health care worker images as free downloads there's no reason whatsoever not to join in on honoring our front line heroes .  (I have three such heroes in my immediate family and worry about them every. single. day.)

I chose to combine an online nurse freebie from My Favorite Things with one of their stamp sets that I physically own to create my card.

I thought it would be nice to combine the caregiver with her sweet recuperating patient for something a bit different.

I colored the images with Copic markers and added them to a background of old patterned papers.  I much prefer their cozy background to the sterility of most hospitals, don't you?  

A big shout out to MFT for their generous downloads!  Thank you!

Stay healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!



  1. This is wonderful Julie and I am glad you added the recovering patient in there as well. God bless your family members that are on the front lines too. You have created a fabulous scene right down to the brick wall, not to forget to mention your fabulous coloring. Thanks so much for joining us over at Seize the Birthday for our Heroes Challenge.

  2. What a great card. The embossed brick wall and creative flooring look great. That is so cute to include the recuperating patient. Thanks so much for sharing with us for our special Seize the Heroes challenge.
    God bless your family members that are frontline workers, as well as all the other workers out there. Blessings, JoAnn

  3. This is so awesome! Love your colouring, and the background setting. With doctors and nurses in my family, too, I know what you mean about that extra added worry. Let's hope we can get through this soon. And thanks for linking up with us at Seize the Birthday!

  4. Just the best creation and so original. I have lots of friends and family in healthcare and this would be a great card to get. A fabulous tribute to them. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  5. Oh Jules, this is just perfection!
    Though I love your embossing - let's just say this is a home-health-caregiver! lol
