First Aid kit House Mouse 'Get Well' card

 Hello folks!  Well what fantastic shows on Create and Craft this weekend... including our Joanna and Jo.  I though the design team excelled themselves with the gorgeous samples.  Well done teamies.
 This is the card I made showcasing the House Mouse 'Doctors orders' stamp set.  I stamped and coloured the image using alcohol markers and used my Nesties and Cricut to create the tag.  The first aid kit bag I drew freehand and cut out.  I stitched all around the edge with white thread.  I used my Cricut and Gypsy to create the white cross.  I attached the tag to the bag with a ribbon bow.
You can really see the stitching from this angle.  The handle was colours using the marker too.
Being in the Brighton Congress Hall Salvation Army band I was in the Remembrance Day Parade this morning.  The Sun was shining.  It was a beautiful day (my hat didn't fly off this year while I was marching and playing going past the pier as it normally does) It was a very poignant moment when our lovely Cyril (in his 90's and still playing in our band) laid the wreath on behalf of BCH.  I shall never forget.
 Enjoy what is left of the weekend.
Ciao for now!

Fabtastic and very inventive Sandra. Missed the show today as just going to work at that time. How lovely that Cyril is still playing in your band at 90 plus, what lovely memories you will have. What do you play?

Your First Aid bag is absolutely gorgeous. You always come up with such original ideas.
