School Nurse Day

May 10th is National School Nurse day in the US. I don’t think we have a day dedicated to school nurses in the UK although recently there has been a lot of talk in government, medical and education circles about the importance of the school nurse in the life of a school.

May 10th is also Humour Me Wednesday at Bugaboo Stamps. The samples in the post there cover a range of ‘Celebrations’ that fall during the week so why not hop on over to the Catch the Bug blog and take a look.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Brat Get Well Soon Nurse
X-Press It card
blue card
acrylic greeting stamp
archival black ink pad
Copic pens
scalloped edge die set
A5 white card blank

The image is printed on X-Press It card, coloured with Copic pens and cut out with a die. Then it is matted onto a larger die cut out of blue card.

The sentiment is stamped on the bottom of the mat and then the whole topper is attached to the card blank.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

PIP #1719 – Anything Goes

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
