Thank-you Card - Nurse Tilda

Good morning crafters. Today I'm sharing a thank you card that I have made for the doctor and nurses that cared for me in Nuffield Hospital. They really did look after me well, before and after my treatment. Sometimes I think the NHS should take a look at private hospitals and treat their patients as good as the private sector do. I can honestly say they really do take every measure to make sure your looked after well. When I had my gall bladder ( NHS ) out I warned the staff that I'm terribly sick after any operation - the anaesthetic really doesn't agree with me. They didn't listen, which meant I was sick constantly for 3 days. Now it's not nice when you have had the operation I did have. It puts a lot of strain on your stomach and did mean I was in a lot of pain.
Now going private - I again warned them. I also learnt that people who suffer from travel sickness
( which I get ) also get sickness from an operation. Some of you know its like motion sickness - I actually feel like I'm on a small boat in the middle of the sea experiencing the worst storm ever.
I was given two injections to stop this sickness. You know what -  I woke from my surgery feeling fantastic. I could have eaten a 3 course meal and walked around with no dizziness what so ever, no high blood pressure. I was on top of the world. Now why couldn't the NHS do that for me.
Overall, they looked after me so well - I had no complaints what so ever. So this is why I made the this card - to show my appreciation.
I have used Nurse Tilda from the Winner Takes All Collection 2011.
She's been coloured with Pro-markers.
Papers are a mixture of PAPERMANIA - Lucy Cromwell & FOREVER FRIENDS - New Arrival.
I have added buntings to the bottom of this card - really does give a  lovely finish.
This idea is NOT my own but from the lovely Mandy ( Totally Tilda DT ). Her cards are stunning! You've just got to go over and have a peek and leave her some love. They just blow me away.
Flowers and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Small Butterfly Punch - Tonic Studio.
Cheery Lynne - Fanciful Flourish - can't be without this die at the moment - best one ever.
Sentiment - Craft Work Cards.
I'm off up the post-office now that I have shared this card with you. 
Happy crafting. 
Hugs & Loves

  2. Hi Tammy,
    I had my G.Bladder out about 20 years ago..and thats the age that I was. I was the youngest person that particular hospital had operated on to take it out. I wouldn't wish the symptoms & pain on even my worse enemy! It was horrendous. Hope you're ok now. Also wanted to say that I love this design. Simply beautiful :) I have been looking for your email address on here but couldn't find it (maybe I've missed it somewhere lol)as I wanted to ask you a question. So I will ask it here :)

    In regards to the photo you took...
    you were able to put 3 images in the one image. I have been trying to do that ... but can't seem to do it. Just wondering if you could help me understand, maybe lead me to a tutorial or something. I have Photoshop.
    Here is my email address:
    Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
    Sorry for the long post lol.
    Take care & keep up the great work.


Thanks for stopping leave a comment and come back soon. Tammy xx
