I'm Not Deaf....................

This is another of those Art Impressions images that I seem to be irresistibly drawn too - I had better stop it, I feel uncomfortably like her this morning............... I 'dressed' her in hot pink and purple, she looks to me the sort of gal who would go for these colours.............
The sentiment really made me laugh

How much longer is this baby sitting malarkey going on for - only another 36 hours to go................... and boy, are we exhausted already. Milo is true to form and yelling loudly for his mum most of the day, and Max is the original whirling dervish. All worth it of course when Milo gives us a watery smile in between sobs, and Max flings his little arms around our legs to give us a hug. Mind you, the mum in us never goes away does it? My son went out to his car last night to transfer the child seats to our car, and I found myself saying 'put your coat on, it's cold'. He looked at me in total amazement. In the meantime, if this stamped image was real, that woman wouldn't stand a chance, I'd be pinching that walking frame off her, just to prop myself up.

Hilarious, Enfys! Love the colors! We had our grandson, Domenic, for a few hours yesterday and my daughter warned me "he had a 3 hour nap". GREAT! He was so wound up and full of energy I thought our heads would fall off trying to keep up with him! I am almost thankful to be at work today and I don't exactly enjoy my job!

It is a great image, think you are telling us something about your personality lol. Good luck with the baby sitting, I'd be ready to trade them in for quieter models by now lol.

I'm crazy about this card!!!! And like you I feel a bit like her this morning. A tip from my babysitting guidebook. Repeat throughout the day .... I'm here for a good time, not for a long time. And, I can give them back.

Have fun, stay sane. hugs, eileen

I love that card, and that sentiment is awesome, may have to make a plaque for my studio using it, lol. Hugs

Fun card Enfys. I wish I had that image, it would have been perfect for the BD card I am making for my MIL because that is her to a T - walker and all. Hang in with the kidlets and just remember this will give you loads to remind Milo of when you do your speech at his wedding - LOL
Hugs

You have given me ideas( I have 5 friends with birthdays in the next couple of weeks and a son-in-law, opps almost forgot him).Even though it is tireing enjoy your grandchildren. They grow up TOO FAST. Mine (boys ages 3 and 5) live close by and we see them almst every day. When they don't come by our house has such an errie quiet.

Your post made me smile. I had my niece and nephew (a couple months and 4 1/2 at the time) for a week. Thought I'd DIE before the week was up! I'm also addicted to Art Impressions stamps. Like how you've done her up. Hang in there you can do 36 hours!

Oh Enfys you do seem to have your hands full, Im expecting to go and look after 4 of my grandchildren in the near future, luckily they are a bit older than your little ones, but that means other problems instead.
I image I will definitely be like your elderly lady in that image, shes a bit like me in the morning at the best of times. Love those stamps have quite a few of them already. Fabulous card and it will cheer anyone up. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

Jessica said...

Connie said...

TOOOOOO Funny!! Love the card. Once a mother, always a mother!!!

Hi Enfys:
I know how you are feeling - gotta love those grandbabies, but boy it gets harder every year!!! LOL!

A while back you helped me try to find the Loralie Designs fabric to copy your fabric cards - what I found was VERY large, but I worked around that and they were a big hit! I just wanted to let you know that loraliedesigns.com now has some of those images in rubber stamps - they aren't cheap, but really cute!! I guess I know where a lot of my $ are going (they look just like my scrapbooking buddies!!!!!!!)

Thanks again,
jackie
