Welcome Home!!

Yay! I've managed to get here again!! Nothing for ages and then two posts in as many days!! ^.^
Today starts a new challenge with Mo and her Digital Pencil...and this week Lisa has given us the theme of 'Shades of Grey'!
To start with it seemed that 'challenge' was the right word, but you know...once you get going it actually grows on you! :)
When I first saw this image from Mo, (Young Love) it immediately shouted 'Mum and Dad's Christmas card' at me...but then things kind of went pear shaped and Christmas was spent with both of them being in hospital, and of course on different wards, so it wasn't really the same. However, Mum came home last week, and Dad...after 7 weeks...is coming home tomorrow!! So what better way to say 'Welcome Home' to them both than to use this fab image. It'll be lovely to see them both back together...after all, I think this is the longest that they've ever been apart in 57 (and a half!...very important ^.^ ) years of marriage!!Papers - Stampin' Up! - Nouveux Chic
Image - Mo's Digital Pencil - Young Love
Bead Pin - Made by Me!

Lydia, Your card is beautiful. This was the image that I was going to use if I didn't get Sister's Joy :) So glad to hear that your dad will be home tomorrow. I know it has been hard for you, but I know they are so glad you are there for them.
