Keep in touch

I've made this card using the 4x4 Friday theme of family for my brother and Japanese wife as a goodbye, and keep-in-touch card. They are emigrating to Japan at the end of the month, to my great sadness. We don't have any plans to go there as the costs are too high, so hope they'll pop back to England every so often. Tomorrow we're having them and the rest of my family round for a party. Shame my brother in Australia cannot join us too.


The photo is the only formal one we have of the 5 of us, and was taken a couple of years ago. I converted it to a black and white image. Peter is now taller than Steve, much to Steve's disgust!!
