Grandad Card

Here's another Papercraft Inspirations card. The stamp is by Penny Black, cardstock is core-dinations, and I forgot to make a note of the Promarker colours I used - slap wrists.... I just cut two narrow slivers of the blue card and stuck them down each side of the green layer, the 'brads' are card candy from Craftwork Cards.


We had our daughter-in-law Annabel visiting last week with Kiki and Monty. It was such a joy to spend time with them. We headed down to Bicester Village one day - a very upmarket outlet mall, selling serious designer stuff - Jimmy Choo, Vivienne Westwood, Mulberry, Dior - you get the picture. Even at outlet prices you can only gasp at the price tags. So we were browsing in L'Occitane (selling soaps, body lotions and so on), sniffing the samples and comparing the different scents.
'Can I help you?' asked an assistant
Before we could answer, Kiki (age 6) turned to her and said in a very gracious way
'We're not buying, we're only smelling'
That kid is a trip!

Adorable card Enfys!
Aren't kids a trip! They are so up front and honest! Cute story!

Jessica said...

Oh how cute! How did the sales person respond? Probly took her a minute to be able to speak at all! I just love little ones! Only truth comes out of their mouths until they become teenagers. ;)
I'm glad you got to enjoy 'hanging' with the wee ones.

Jessica said...

Sorry I forgot to say that your little guy on the card reminded me of my youngest son when he was small. But his hair was as red as it can be. I could always pick him out of a crowd! I keep trying to remind myself to use one ot the Flower Soft toppers and make the little guy have red hair. Maybe for his next birthday. hmmmm

Out of the mouth of babes comes such honesty. This card is really hitting home with my husband right now. We have both grandboys ages 6 and 4 and after being in school all day the natives are a bit restless.

Super super card En, Ive never ever seen a Grandad card b4 on blogs so this is extra special.

Fab retro image and the sentiment is so true!

Sounds like you had a great time at Bicester, just as well Kiki was with you or you may have spent a fortune! lol!
