Clean and Simple Card Class 4- homework

I haven't posted or created much for that matter in the last few weeks. My class this semester is rather trying and is zapping all the creative energy I have. 

But today, I had that extremely rare event in the life of a nurse, a SNOW DAY!!!! Because of the storm we were expected to get, our medical director decided to close our endoscopy unit! Therefore this nurse gets to have some fun and play!!

I just finished catching up on the start of the Clean and Simple Card Class 4. Kristina Werner did a very cool video on "interrupted die cutting". She used a scallop die. I went for a heart rhythm die, that I have never used. With all the stamps I have, do you think I could find a"you make my heart beat" noooooo So I had to make do with "you make my heart flutter". For you medical people perhaps you can see how I could use this in a pinch- aflutter. Get it?!!?



If you haven't taken any of the online card classes, they are awesome. I always learn something new.

Check them out.

Pia- thanks for the nice comment, because you suggested, I am entering my card at the ombre challenge at Inkspiration.
