Get Well Dad, With A Dustin Doodle.

First, sorry no blogging for the last few days, my longest ever I think, couldn't be helped. Thank you to everyone who left kind comments, my dad has been moved to a different ward. He's had 'Echo's, Xrays, Scans' and lord knows what else but at least he's looking sooo much better!
Of Course I just had to make Dad a get well card and I knew I had this little poorly owl somewhere so hunted him out to use in one of Dustin's Challenges. Very chuffed I won last time!! But once again, I only have a few hours to enter! (thank goodness America is still in Yesterday as I type!) Hope I'm not too late, but never mind, I love Dustin's Doodles. If you haven't found him yet, where have you been?!?
The challenge was to use a Dustin Pike Digi and the colour Green. So here we have a green card with (two) DP digi's, ticking all the boxes, I hope!
I've used Serif, Picnic in The Park papers from a stack free with Simply Cards and PaperCraft Magazine last month.
I printed out the little sick owl three times, coloured using my Promarkers, (different shades of green) used my Nesties on the first one, cut out the other two to make a bit of a 3D effect.
The font (as always) is a freebie. It's called Frosty and one I've used before ages ago so you should have it. (Great for Christmas cards too) You can download it HERE. Other places are available just Google the name.
The insert, if you popped over earlier you'll notice I've changed. (If you use Photo Glue it pulls out very easily without tearing) There's now another Dustin Doodle on one side, a cute little bug, it comes already coloured and in black and white, you should find him HERE.
I quickly put him (The bug) into PaintNet (also free!) to type in the sentiment. 'Sorry You Caught A Bug' This font is also a freebie, it's called Billy Bear's Crayons. I've typed it in bold and you can download it HERE. There's quite a few other freebie 'kiddie' type fonts on this website you might like too! (Or just Google the name)
Hope dad likes his card, off in a minute to collect Mum and then it's back to the hospital again. Just wish it was closer! Have a great 'Holiday' weekend.
