Doctors Orders Number 9.....

You need to think creativity for this one! The challenge this week on Tag - You're It is:


I had a little think about this one. I really need to make a get well / recover quick card for my Dad as he is due to have a knee replacement op on 11 February and I wanted to be a little organised for it. So, I had a Dottie printing extravaganza and printed this little image out (along with others!) I had to google the bingo lingo to make sure I was right, and so the tag was born!

I made up the shape of the tag myself (basically the blue star card was an off-cut and I was determined that I was going to use it up!) - I used a roll of sellotape for the shaped bit at the top. I layered it onto some dark blue card to give it an edge. The ribbon was from a very generous Enfys (how can you give away that much ribbon??!!) The sentiments are stamped with blue Whispers ink (with black residue - opps not cleaned the stamps too well eh?!) and I've used my little wooden Studio G alphabet stamp set. And the number 9 is cut with the Sizzix Round-a-Bout Alphabet set.

Do you think my Dad will see the funny side of it?! She looks a bit like the Catherine Tate character doesn't she?! Lets hope he's dosed up on numerous painkillers if he gets a nurse like that!
