A couple of weeks ago my sister, her hubby and my niece and her family surprised us by stopping on their way home from a Family Reunion. Of course, I had to take some pics of our precious Madyson!! I’ll never forget that tiny little body running down the mall with her arms pumping as fast as her little legs. What a sweetie. It was so good to have them here even if the time was short. Here’s one of my favorite pics of them.
When I saw the Little Darlings Science 101 image I knew I had to make it for Nikki! You can find it here at the Little Darlings Store. She teaches Advanced Biology and Chemistry. The things she talks about that they do I wish I could have had her for a teacher! She is one tough teacher but the kids love her! What a perfect image for her birthday! What is really great her birthday is three months away!! What a first to be ready that far ahead. 🙂
The image also takes me back to the days I worked in a lab! Yep, I was that vampire that took your blood! Ah yes, the memories of someone else’s urine dripping from my hair and face. Having to take meds because I drew blood from someone with encephalitis. Ah, those were the days. LOL! No, I can’t say I miss it.
Anywho, here’s my card for Nikki.
This was one of those cards I had all planned out in my head and it turned out exactly like I had envisioned it. I love it when that happens. I had to do some Googling to find a template for the Erlenmeyer flask. I just had to have it on the card! My hubby came up with the idea of putting Crystal Lacquer on the flask so I just added it to the one in her hand and the test tube and her glasses. I’m not sure I would do the glasses again. It kind of left her with a “mad scientist” look!
I want to come up with a science themed Birthday greeting for the back. “Wishing you all the elements of a Happy Birthday!” Something like that. It ended up being a strange size because I wanted the periodic table to show all the way around the card. So it’s a gigantic postcard!!
