Be Brave, Be Fearless! What do you know about stroke?

One of the best aspects of my career as a pharmacist is the relationships forged with my patients. I practice with the goal of improving lives. I want to know how they feel- about their meds, their day-to-day life, their pharmacy experience. And I work very hard to commit those things to memory, remembering their medications, regimens, and concerns.

As a crafter, I'm able to let my patients know that we (my pharmacy team) care about them through the cards I create. I used my homework assignment from Summer Card Camp 2 to do just that for a special patient who recently suffered a stroke and is having a hard time adapting to changes in his life post-stroke and rehabilitation.

Butterfly Thank You's & GIVEAWAY

My aunt and uncle in Kentucky are so awesome! They sent me a special birthday card with a sentiment for their favorite niece (ok, so I added the favorite part). I wanted to create a special thank you card to send them. I think butterflies are always beautiful and this color combo was a sure fire winner.

I decided I could multi-task and complete both pre-class challenges for Summer Card Camp 2 at Online Card Classes. Side note- if you are in to making cards, these classes are really inspiring and full of techniques.

Here's the card I made. I hope they like it!
