Thank you, doc!

My brother-in-law is my husband's primary care physician.  Getting Walt to the doctor is quite the effort these days so I was beyond thrilled when he said he would see him on a Saturday morning to take care of some minor issues.  He also makes house calls (either here or there) so he's super special!

Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers (now offered by Stamp Francisco I believe) is the creator of all the images.  I stamped them on cheap watercolor paper (won't do that again...way too much bleedability) with Hickory Smoke archival ink.  The doctors were stamped on a separate sheet and cut out then had Hickory Smoke distress ink run around the edges to create more dimension than just using foam tape underneath them.

The images were colored using distress ink (Tattered Rose, Candied Apple, Fired Brick, Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans, Cracked Pistachio, and Lucky Clover).  'Thank you' was stamped in Hickory Smoke archival ink as well.  It's from Stampers Anonymous CMS236 'Crazy Talk'.

The top layer was also edged with Hickory Smoke distress ink before adhering it to a neutral card base.  Here I didn't care so much about the bleed factor (kind of appropriate given the nature of the card).

If you have a professional whatever in your family you know how handy they can be in your time of need.  Having that 'in' with them can be useful and we try very hard not to abuse that privilege.
