I've been asked to make a card for a very good friend who has passed her HSA to be a Doctor. Could you advise if there is a stamp or download I could buy of a female doctor or does anyone have an image they would be willing to send me, I will pay for the postage or do an image swap in return. Or do you think I'd be better making it a graduation card?? Thanks in advance for all your help hugs Jill xx
