Peacock Birthday

I used printed elements from the Back to Nature CD by Polkadoodles for this one. I simply chopped bits of the tailfeather papers up, mounted them onto pale lilac gemstone cardstock, and topped them with the peacock. I added shimmerz dots here and there for a bit of sparkle


Thank you for all the emails, I have had loads of new year messages, and get well wishes as well, you are such a kind bunch. I still feel pretty ropey actually, this cold is showing no signs of going away, so I am keeping warm and cozy. I have been crafting like crazy though, only it's all stuff I can't share with you yet - magazine stuff that has to be sent off this week. You will get to see them in time :)
I think I have broken about six resolutions already - how are you doing? I say 'think' because I really can't remember exactly what I resolved to do now. Perhaps it's just as well.
Apparently Max (3) has discovered the joys of being an older brother. Every time Milo (18 months) touches his toys, or does anything Max disapproves of, he says very sternly 'MILO, go to the naughty step at once'
The hilarious thing is that Milo trundles off to the naughty step and sits there until his parents rescue him!
See you tomorrow

  8. Enfys,
    I was hoping that you were feeling better. I love the faries with the wings that you don't have to use and never did order them. Also the DVD that you have over there.
    My credit card was used yesterday for over 800.00. All orders placed over the intenet. I was so upset yesterday. Love the card great work as usual. I don't have time right now for cards.

  16. Enfys do you remember the show Kids say the darndest things? I love your story. The power of the older child. My two are 26 and 24 and the older brother pushed all the younger ones buttons on Christmas.
    I love the card and am looking forward to seeing what you have been up to.
    Feel better!
    Hugs,
    Linda

  20. I love your card and the splash of color is a wonderful touch. Sorry you aren't all better but hang in there, surely it can't last much longer. Aren't kids the best? Milo will take revenge soon enough I am sure.

  22. What a beautiful card! I am looking forward to seeing the items you can't show us because it needs to go to the magazine first - bet it is lovely!

  23. Very pretty card. I hope you feel better soon, I hate when any of my favorite peeps get ill. Take care of yourseld.
    I loved the tidbit about Max and Milo. I guess it's better that he listens to Max, it could get ugly quickly if he didn't. My boys faught like cats n dogs whe they were little guys. I'd rather have had the 'naughty step' instead. lol
    be well, Jess

  24. And a very Happy New Year to you and your precious family. As for your cold, it sounds like you need some good ol fashioned home made chicken soup to cure your cold. Jewish penicillin my mom used to call it. I'll be right over to make you some! Be well. Love the card and the pictures of your cuties. They are getting so big.

  26. What a beautiful card! I love it. I guess I need to think about cutting up some of those wonderful papers I have that I keep thinking I have to use the entire print at one time. This card is so pretty!
    Hope that cold lets up soon for you! Eat some nice chicken soup and plenty of other fluids. Hopefully that will help.
