My BFF "Nurse Wendy" had been sick, then had to stay home in self isolation for a further 2 weeks before she was allowed to go back to work.
To cheer Wendy up, I coloured this fun KLM Design Studio gnome - adding messy hair and a few blood splatters. I used Prismacolour pencils, finishing with a gentle swish of walnut stain distress ink. Very faintly in the background there is a hint of light grey stenciling.
I typed the sentiment on copy paper and my vintage (circa 1970) Olivetti typewriter.
Thank you for looking and a huge thank you to all the health care workers and support staff around the world.
EDIT: I just noticed that the card doesn't look even, but it is a perfect 4 x 6 rectangle. Weird hey.

Susie, this is sooooo adorable! I so admire how you color, and especially hair! This will certainly cheer up your friend who is a nurse. What a deal she is going through. I hope she makes a full and complete recovery. ~Karen.
