"Eye Love You" : Eye Chart Printable

One of my BFF's is in optometry school.  Kate's a first year student, just like my hubby is a first year student, so she understands much better than most exactly HOW MUCH time and effort is required.  She's going to school about five hours away from where we grew up/where her family all lives.  Not seeing her very often stinks.  

What also stinks is that her fiance just deployed for his first army tour almost two weeks ago.  Now this would definitely be rough on anyone, but being five hours away from family and (most) friends and being a first-year student can't make it any easier.  Kate's been a rockstar through the entire thing though - she is so strong and so beautiful!  I wanted to send her a something to bring a little cheer her way, but I couldn't decide what!  Then, while looking through the Target ad last week, I saw this:

From Target 3.27.11 advertisement.  I can't find it on their website, or I'd do a link!

I liked it, but didn't love it.  I decided to make one myself, and giving it more of an "eye chart" feeling as opposed to "this would be cute in a nursery" feeling (though mine would certainly still be cute in a nursery as well!).  Here's what I came up with: 


Green is her favorite color, so naturally that's what I chose!  A quick print on white cardstock, and a simple, white, 8x10" frame finished it off! 

And because I love you (yes, YOU!) so much, I'm going to let you snag one for your favorite eye doctor, your friend in optometry school, or your aunt who works as the receptionist at the lasik eye place.

There are five colors available!  Click on the word link underneath for a free download.  They're perfectly sized to fit in an 8x10" frame.

                                                   Orange            Green               Purple              Pink                Teal

I think the teal one might be my fave:


If you're loving this but just wish it was in a different color, let me know and I'll do a quick fix for you.  Photoshop is great for making things like that a cinch!
