Welcome Home

Good morning to all my lovely friends and fellow bloggers and thank you for popping by.  Thank you for all your good wishes for John - he seems to be on the mend finally.  Although at the moment he is okay one day and I think - great!  Then next day he is down again, but he isn't going back to square one all the time now which he was doing at first,  thank goodness.

Well my card today is for my brother in law who is finally home again after spending the last six weeks in hospital and rehabilitation centre.  Wheelchair-bound and stair lift necessary - but home!  A welcome relief for the whole family but I'm particularly pleased for my sister.

My Card

This is a 5" x 7" card. The image is Little Birdie from Deedees Digis and I combined two images and the sentiment together before printing it out. I used the ready coloured images because I wanted to get it in the mail PDQ.  All in all I think it took about 15 minutes to make so I was pleased with that.  I even managed to marry up the font to add his name.  The little sunflowers have been in my stash for a number of years and the leaves are from Cheery Lynn Wreath Strip.  A few amber gems finished it and it was ready to be passed on to my helpful postie to take to the sorting office.  I had to be quick because I wanted it to be there waiting for him when he arrived home. 

 Hope you and your loved ones are okay, but I know some people are suffering.  Big hugs to you all!!

We have had a few glorious days again so lets hope it lasts a little bit longer.  But my goodness doesn't it get dark quickly?

Well that's it from me for today.
