A 3 challenge card and.....guess who's home?

I'm feeling a bit better today so I pushed the boat out and made a card for 3 challenges. This one is for:

Sketch and Stash - the sketch and the new items are the heart shaped brads
Penny Black - Hearts Desire
My time to craft - Polkadots

I've also used some neglected stash on this card. Those papermania Scrumptious papers have been sitting around for ages feeling all forlorn so I decided to brush off the dust and give them an airing. The Penny black stamp is called Hearts Away and it has been coloured with my trusty promarkers (I really like these now).

So, guess who came home last Sunday afternoon?
Yes, Oscar is out of hospital at long last. It's been a long old slog since he was born on 20 May but at last my daughter can settle down into a proper family routine (and so can I!). Sorry I haven't let you all know before now, but put it down to me being poorly this week. He's doing so well still and is almost the size of a real baby now - he weighs 4lb 12oz. What great news.

Thanks for looking
Sharon xx

oh Sharon that's the best news I've heard in ages, you must all be just thrilled.

Your daughter will be able to breathe now if you know what I mean. Oscar has done tremenously well to gain so much weight for such an early little boy, he'd be about term now wouldn't he?

Can't stop smiling for you
