Congrats to my daughter!

You know........it's funny! I love sharing good news with my blog buddies even though I haven't meet that many of you in real life, I consider you all such good friends! Sooooooo..........................

As many of you know, my daughter graduated from college in May with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, but it has been her life long dream to be a doctor/nurse.  It is extremely hard to get into the programs that would give her a BS in Nursing.  We have two of the most amazing Nursing schools ever right here in the Houston area.  Anyhow, she applied a few months ago and just got accepting into her very first choice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We are so proud of her!  She will eventually go on to become a Nurse Practitioner, but the goal right now is Nurse.  It will only take her 15 months to complete the program because it is a fast track program. I think she will make a fantastic nurse and decided to make a little card for her.  Now, mind you, this was a very quick card (like an hour hahaha).  She is not a foofey girl and so it is pretty simple, but she will like the bright colors.


I got this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  When I saw it first put up long ago, I thought that it would make the most perfect card for Alyssa!  I think the zig zags look like heart rate pulses or something haha!

Thanks for letting me share my news with you!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!!!!

Hugs, Dena

Congrats to your daughter sweetie! I hope I will get to be as happy and proud as you are one day:)) Mine is barely 3 now but well, time flies as I hear:).
You chose the perfect nurse image, I can tell you cause I once needed a card for a nurse and searched all over and eventually thought Mo has the perfect images for everything:).
Wonderful colors and I love the nurse hat on the bow.
Good luck to your daughter and tell her not to stop until she becomes a doctor!

britgirl58 said...

I work as a nurse...I congratulate your daughter, and wish her the very best as she undertakes her journey. She has some very commendable long term dreams, I'm sure she will do very well. The nursing profession could really use some committed input. I am sure she will love the card. The image is perfect, and the card is decorated just right. I agree - the zig zags could be the monitor readings! Congratulations!

Riet said...

Oh, this card is beautiful! You're so right! That was my immediate thought when I first saw it- the curves look like a heartrate! Cool!
