A Christmas Scene

 I promise this will be the last Christmas card for at least a week! Here's one I made before I left home, using Memory Box dies. The paper is from the SEI Kris Kringle stack (purchased just for this one paper, I love it), the moon is a stamped circle, and the dies were cut in white, then run through the zyron to add glue, then glittered, so in real life it is really sparkly




Overheard in a long queue at a shop yesterday, a woman talking to her friend on the phone saying she had had a bad night. Apparently her five year old woke up at 3AM and demanded to watch a Michael Jackson DVD, so of course she put it on for him (as any insane responsible parent would do - what the little darling wants, the little darling gets........) then he wanted to watch something else (she probably put the  Exorcist or some other suitable little programme on for him), and finally fell asleep at 6 AM. She was MOANING that she felt exhausted. Never mind the poor child, falling asleep at his desk in school. I had to bite my tongue so hard, none of my business of course.......but really, some people have the parenting skills of a wombat, rant over!

At last, the promised Letraset giveaway will be up tomorrow, check in and see

Hey hun, sorry it has been such a long time between visits! What a wonderful scene you've created - just love this so much, gorgeous indeed. As for the child, the parent will suffer after school when the too-tired-to-be-human kid gets home. It really makes you wonder what goes through some peoples heads!! Hugs Sxx

Fantastic card. Love all this blue, white and sparkle. It's a beautiful scene you made out of die cuts.

Hi Enfys I dont think the young parents of today have any idea how to raise children, they seem to get away with so much, I carnt remember my parents ever giving in to me like that, they would have been very strict and told me to go back to sleep.
A stunning card love, love the die cut look. hugs Shirleyxx

Hellllllooo Enfys, long time no write! I love your card. I know what you mean about parenting... I would definately have chosen Janet Jackson instead! ;o)
Have a great day. xoxo

Gorgeous Card Enfys! And as usual the same great humor! You really need to write a book with all the quips you've heard along the way! You somehow are always in the right place at the right time to overhear these crazy comments!! It's like reading one of Erma Bombeck's books!!

Hugs,
Patty

Lovely card. I love the sparkle. You are right about some parents, don't ya think there should be some kind of manual that goes with the kid, but then again there are lots of good resources out there and people like that just don't take advantage of them.

Linda said...

Your card is wonderful!
Your story so sad but true. And they want to blame all the problems children have in school on the school?!?
There should be a push for Parental Responsibility!

Ooh I just love this card and I bet it really does sparkle, I love adding glitter or snow with the zyron it gets such a good coating.
