January 12th is National Pharmacist Day - now, this day is a spot warm and dear to my heart as I have my very own Pharmacist. My daughter, Jen. I am sew appreciative of the wonderful care that I get!!!! I'm sure other pharmacists are wonderful but I've known mine forever!!!!!

Thus, I made this card for her by first Googling "pharmacy" and found a beautiful Pharmacist Prayer which I printed out and placed under a framed card which was made using Elegant Edges which I welded a solid back to the lacey front which I used pink Recollections card stock. No inking around the edges or bling bling. Simple card which I think looks elegant and hope you agree!

For my second card this month, I chose January 18th as Winnie the Pooh Day as this is the birthday of Winnie's author, A.A. Milne. Who doesn't love this cuddly little bear??? I know I love him as I have him immortalized on my upper right thigh in a form of a tattoo. 

I'm a bit tired this evening as I spent the morning with my granddaughter and this afternoon shopping with a dear friend and I had yet to finish my card. SEW, I decided to make Pooh sleeping using Pooh and Friends Cricut Cartridge with the sentiment, "Happy Belated Birthday with Pooh Bear thinking of a birthday cupcake with a candle on it no less. On the inside, I have written that I must have slept through your birthday to have missed such a grand day!!!!
