CONTEST - Introducing Nurse Sophie!!

It is International Nurses Week!!!! 

Happy International Nursing Day to all of my comrades around the world!

Starting today until May 12th
{which is Florence Nightingale's birthday}. 
Florence Nightingale was known as "The Lady with the Lamp".
She was born May 12th, 1820
and passed away August 13, 1910.
She WAS the pioneer of modern nursing......

I was asked by Christine of The Paper Nest Dolls to be a
guest designer and create something 
with one of her new images called Nurse Sophie,
which is available here!
She is available for a limited time as a digital stamp
 and then she will be strictly rubber.
So today, Christine is offering this rubber stamp to 1 winner.
All you have to do is comment on this blog post, very simple!

Everyone that is familiar with me,
knows that I am a Registered Nurse
and that I work in Paediatrics.
So for the entire week,
 I am going to dedicate this week to all the
nurse's from all over the world.
 I am proud to work with some of the
most AMAZING nurses every day.

Just to make it interesting...... each day I will post a creation
with one of my favourite nursing digital OR rubber stamps.
You will have a chance to win that stamp by commenting
on my blog for that specific day.
Want them all? Then comment each day and your
name will be put in the draw for each stamp.
Winners will be announced on May 13th by random draw.

How flipping adorable is this stamp?

Copics markers I used for her:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E23, E25
Bag/Clipboard/Hat: C0, C1, C2, R35, R37, R39
Outfit/Shoes: G20, G21, G24

Don't forget to comment for a chance to win!

I hope you like my creations over the next week.
