Bedside Manner and Some News!

I can finally reveal my good news!  I've been asked to join the small but perfectly formed Design Team for Dr Digi!!  And I've accepted the position and I am Girl Tuesday!  So every Tuesday at 10am GMT come hail, rain, shine or snow (its hailing and lightning really really hard whilst I write this!) I'll be blogging something from Dr Digi!

And to start it off, here is Night Nurse Nina with her most favoured expression.  It's one of those looks that can be applied in almost any clinical situation.  Especially if she's holding a rather large needle.  And yes, she's been heard to say, in a rather bored and patronising voice, 'it's only a little scratch' whilst jabbing the flabby white rear end of a poor male patient.  And hiding her smirk.

And Nina can be all yours too for the princely sum of a quid!  Yes one whole pound!  And she's worth every penny!!  Click here to go and buy!!

I've coloured her with Promarkers and then cut her out.  I made the clipboard from an old manilla folder - I hate to throw anything away (as I know I will be able to use it some day!) and added a a sheet of paper from Jacob's notebook - he's not noticed so I aint telling him!  I've roughed it up a little with ink plus some rolling and ripping.  I've added the critical red line and then stamped the sentiment with a little wooden Studio G alpha set.  And the clippy bit at the top are offcuts of gold card and I've used a tool thing to indent the lines.

So hope you enjoyed my first post and don't forget to come back next Tuesday for another peak at the genius of Dr Digi!  Or check out the blog - something new every day (or nearly!)  Don't forget to subscribe to the newsletter - miss it and miss out!
