Thank You Nurses

Yes, it's time to say a big 'Thank You' to the nurses again. My little grandson Oscar finally moved from intensive care in Portsmouth over to Winchester on Monday so we need to send a thank you to the nursing staff at Portsmouth for all the care and attention they gave him. He's still only a tiny thing - just two and a half pounds but he handled the journey incredibly well and has really settled down in the new unit. I'm off to visit him in a minute or two so no blogging for me tonight and I'll have to make up for it tomorrow. Now, if only he's devoid of tubes this evening I may even be able to get a picture.

I used the wonderful sketch over at Inspirational Card Sketches challenge blog as the basis for this card. It's the first time I've entered their challenge and the sketch this week is just fabulous to work with. There is some amazing DT inspiration on the challenge for this sketch, so I hope you go and have a look.
Items used:
See D's and Claire Curd's sentiments
Hampton Art Stamps - Tall Watercolour Flower
K & Co papers,
Promarkers and whispers brush strokes pens.
Flowers and ribbon from my stash.
Hope you're all having a good week.

This card is gorgeous! I love the color (my favorite color)and the flowers in the boxes. The doodling is cute as well! I will pray for your grandson! It is nice that in this day and age you can be only 2 plus pounds and make it to be a big strong 200 pound linebacker on a football team! Then I can say I know him!
