You Can't Find a Card for this Topic in Hallmark!

I love making cards ... and what could be better than personalizing the card for the recipient.
A friend of mine at work has done a wonderful thing! She was determined to be a bone marrow match to a complete stranger. She was a perfect match and by her donating bone marrow was going to save this 23-year old's life. She jumped at the chance .... and in return our work place gave her paid time off.
Everyone wanted to pass around a card for her and make it special ... so they came to me to design something for her.
This is what I came up with:

I call this - Life Saver in the Sea of Bone Marrow!

I took the life saver as clipart from my computer. It fits perfect in this Nestability don't you think??? I typed the sentiment on my computer and added it. The bones are from an old TAC set and I gave them dimension with my Copics. Then I stamped "Marrow" with Simple Bet and embossed it. I added ribbon and pop-dotted the sentiment.

You just can't find this type of card in Hallmark!!

We are going to give it to her with a Cookie bouquet of "bone" cookies.

She is my hero!
