Stamp with fun #106–DT card

Hello everyone, I’m really sorry that my posts are a bit erratic at the moment, but unfortunately real life is getting in the way lol!  I have had my appointment in the hospital and the doctor that I saw did a very thorough examination and thinks I am suffering from an inner ear problem which is causing vertigo.  He has started me on a two week course of tablets and will review me again in 3 weeks, if there is still no improvement he will perform a scan so fingers crossed everything will be ok after two weeks of medication!  My father is STILL in hospital and it looks like it could be until the end of this week at the earliest before he is allowed home.  He is recovering well in regards to his operation but they cannot stabilise his warfarin levels so cannot come home until they do grrrrr!! 

Anyway enough of my ramblings, let’s get onto the real reason you are here – to see a card haha!  Over at the stamp with fun challenge this week we have a lovely easy sketch by Andrea-Emmi41 for you to use:

and here is my card:

I was obviously feeling in a green mood when I made this as it is very green lol!  Isn’t the image just super sweet?  Her name is ‘Olivia’ and she is from DigiStamp Boutique but the image will not be available until May.  However you have a chance to win this image, along with a £5.00 gift voucher to the store just by leaving a comment here.  This will be just one of the new releases in the store in May, so I cannot wait to see all the others. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples using Andrea’s sketch, so please pop over and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
