He's Coming Home....!!!

Morning a bright and cheery one for me today as later on my GORGEOUS JIMMY is coming home!!! He is going to be medicated at home by Medicare so they will be coming three times a day and I will have to administer all the oral drugs inbetween his intravenous ones. We are getting a sharps box and everything. Do you think I should buy a nurses outfit?
I am bring to you my first DT card of the day for the wonderful Delicious Doodles Challenge there is a great prize on offer so go over to the blog for all the details.
I liked this challenge set for us this week as it involved lots of creativity. We had to make our own buttons. The DT have come up with some simply gorgeous buttons. I made mine using some paper flowers. that I glued together and then I added some glossy accents and distress crackle. Once it dried I added some holes using my a punch and some ribbon.
I created the card using my craftartist program from serif software. I used the photo cutout feature to cut out Teri's stunning image called Sweet Shamrock Fairy you can get her here along with a host of other gorgeous digital stamps. I added some floral and butterfly detail and some shadows from the digital  elements available on the program.
I coloured in the image using promarkers the dress I wanted to match to the main butterfly so I mixed a yellow and blue to create the same look. I love this fairy but I won't be giving any St Patricks day cards. This is why I coloured in the shamrocks in pink and added a centre of stickles to them so they became flowers.
Looking forward to seeing your creations this week. I will be back later with my Sweet Pea Stampers DT card.

Yay Pascale, so happy for you girl! Fantastic news :)

Totally inspired idea colouring the shamrocks as flowers - might have to nick this idea if that's OK? Love what you've done with this card.

Have a fab weekend.

That is fantastic news Pascale, and yes I think a "nurses" outfit would certainly bring a smile to Jimmy's face. Good luck with all the medicines etc. It can get very demanding, but it will be so lovely to have him home with you that I am sure the days will fly by. Love the card by the way, the button flower is inspirational. Hugs Heidi x
