Fresh Green and White

Well, I am back from my dash down to London. It was fun to see the children of course. I picked up Kiki from school, how lovely to walk back hand in hand with her.......
She was insistent that I should have a photo of her as wallpaper on my phone. I am gadget-challenged, and she took over, here she is taking a photo of herself......
I managed to get it as wallpaper 'well done Ma' she said, patting my hand in a motherly way.....



and here she is 'modelling' the dress she will wear for her first communion in May. She wasn't allowed to put it on, too much of a risk......

meanwhile young Monty was gambolling around on the bed, using it as a trampoline.....
Back to reality, I had this gorjuss girl image ready coloured, so making the card was quick and easy, I love the fresh green and white....


Coloured with Flexmarkers, the ribbon is Martha Stewart twine, and the scallop die is by Nellie Snellen. The flower spray is done with the Martha leaf punch and some tiny punched flowers


I need to get back to my desk, but first of all I am spending tomorrow at a big craft fair here in Birmingham. It is a retail fair not trade, which means that I can buy, which means that I will spend, which means I will come home feeling guilty......I'll be back to show you what I managed to buy

Ha ha don't you just love them at this age, she is going to look stunning in her holy communion dress, I can still remember Benn's Holy Communion like it was yesterday. Glad you had a lovely time and enjoy yourself at the show.

Of course you knew that Kiki and Monty were going to steal this post and they did. Wow, they are growing so fast! And yes if you have any technology questions, just find a child and ask them!! It's downright scary at times. Well done on getting the wallpaper accomplished, lol!

A lovely card Enfys, but no competition against those two gorgeous grandchildren. Enjoy the show and just spend! spend! spend! Pat x

AndreaA said...

Your card is gorgeous Enfys!!!!
Is she a digi stamp or a regular stamp. I really like that image!!

I can't believe how big the grandchildren are getting. I remember you having them on your sidebar as babies.
They grow up way to soon and then out grow you ( for a bit) while they spend much times with friends.
Have fun shopping!!

Kiki is just gorgeous! She's getting so tall! And Monty is adorable! You can tell they're siblings too. Thanks for that.
Your card is luscious. I love those little gorguss girls. The colors are lovely ans springy.
I had trouble with changing my wallpaper too. What would we do without the young to teach us. lol
Hugs, Jess

Love the photo of Kiki she is growing up, beautiful dress, silly boy and BEAUTIFUL card...I like how you used the same paper on the scallop as the background paper...

The pictures of the children are always nice to see. We have been watching them grow...Thanks for sharing them with us.

I love the card. Green is one of my favorite colors. I also like the way you did the bow. I have never thought of that. I have so many of your cards in my favorites folder for reference. I love the beautiful and creative way you make your cards. HUGS, Smoochie

Patty said...

Love your green & white card!! Loved your story about Kiki...I too am gadget-challenged...it's so embarassing & frustrating!! I'm jealous you have a craft fair to go to, we just don't have that many here in my neck of the woods!!

MizMaryAnn said...

Kiki is so gorgeous. She could be the model for all of your cards. Aren't all boys alike? They have so much energy. I'm anxious to see what your guilty conscience lets you buy.

JANLYNN said...

Another beautiful card with another of those lovely little girls. Great to see the kids new pictures. They grow up so fast that each and every minute is importantto take in. Don't feel too guilty shopping. We girls must have a bit of shopping therapy every so often.

Hi Enfys Im so glad you had such a wonderful time with your grandchildren, I would love to walk home with mine but they are probably to old for that now the youngest is 11 and would probably think it very uncool.
Love your card its stunning, and such a love colour combo. hugs Shirleyxxx
