TCCC blog post no 228 with theme prompts of pink and or tag

Check out The Crafter's Café Challenge blog #228 reveal for 1 October 2019!!! Use pink and/or tag(s) are the theme prompts for #228.

The prize sponsor is My Besties and they offered a nurse digi image as one of the choice options for the DT crew. I leaped quickly on requesting the nurse image since my mom is a retired RN and October is her birthday month! WIN-WIN!!  However blue is her favorite color so that's why I've chosen to not go 100% pink. I've got a pink, raspberry, blue and turquoise blue for the tags and I've tried to use those for coloring the digital image, too. Here's my mom's birthday card:

Crafting occasionally still in water-logged northern IL (approx. 9" of rain from Friday through early Saturday morning and more rain received on Saturday and Sunday!!!!)...ugh!!!

  1. What a lovely image and so beautifully coloured Becca - I know what you are saying about rain, but here we needed it after a dry Autumn and early part of winter... just wish the temperatures would be more 'spring like' with it!!

    1. Blessings to you, too, Maxine! Thanks for your sweet words of encouragement!

  2. What a great use of tags! So clever. Fun colour combo as well. Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday.

    1. Thanks, Glenda, for acknowledging my participating with STB!!!
