Birthday Wishes

 Todays card is one I made using some new papers by Authentique that I got from Hobby Lobby before I left the states. The leaves are Sissix dies, and the tiny flowers were punched with the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch. I added a drop of gold liquid pearls to each of the centers

and look what was waiting for me when I got home from London, the very latest Spring/Summer colours, brand new limited edition Promarkers. They will be on sale at the end of this month, and take it from me the colours are gorgeous. Each pack has twelve pens and a free blender. So be sure to look out for them. Just a heads up, there are some of the regular ProMarker pen sets at 50% off on the Letraset site (and free worldwide shipping). A perfect way to build up your collection of colours, go HERE to see.....

Our babysitting duties were a lot of fun, Max and Milo are as lively as a cartload of monkeys, but it's easy to keep them occupied - dig out the PlayDoh and let them get messy........

If all else fails, let them watch TV in their new playroom for thirty minutes....look at their cute little armchairs, they sit there like a couple of old men. All they lack is a glass of whiskey and a cigar!

and if three year old Milo refuses to get dressed, but likes running around in Grandad's sweater, well, what does that matter.....

and it's handy to have Grandad close when you reach a really tricky piece of jigsaw....

Meanwhile, his reaction to being told NO (which happens a lot); he lowers his head and gazes balefully at us, wagging his finger from side to side
'you guys have ruined my day'

Fun fun fun! See you tomorrow x


  1. Love the fun photos of your grandkids.

  2. Beautiful card, Enfys! I love those papers! Wonderful pics of the kiddies! They are adorable! I'm sure they loved having you there!

  3. Enfys, Deine Karte ist wunderbar. Ich habe Deinen bericht und die Fotos Deiner Enkel genossen und herzlich gelacht.

  4. I love the card En! I recently got a deal on some Authentique papers at Tuesday Morning. They are gorgeous. But I won't need any paper for the next 10 years! lol
    Max and Milo are still adorable. lo And growing fast. It's great that they'll sit and play with puzzles or playdo or watch tv. I can't wait for Mason to do that. Right now,at 15 mos, when he's awake, he's stuck on full speed! lol TFS Hugs, Jess

  6. Gorgeous card, as always, En! Love all the detail!
    How wonderful for you to have such delightful grandchildren in your life! Terrific photos and I of course love how you describe their antics. I still maintain you should write a book!
    All the best,

  7. Oh, cruel grandma and grandad ruining his day! Love the card Enfys, the papers are beautiful. Pat x

  8. I get tears in my eyes seeing your beautiful grandchildren and knowing how fast they grow up. It just seems like yesterday I was playing with mine like you did this weekend and now they are 22 and 21, Sad. Treasure your moments with them as I'm sure you do. Your card is lovely. I like the flower punch.

  9. How sweet! Thanks for the pics.

    I so enjoy time with my grandkids. Especially those old enough to do crafts :0)

  10. Beautiful card. Love the colors. I must check out these papers. I have to drive right past HL to get home from work. You know kids act like what they see their elders do. Bless that poor child with the ruined day.

  11. Oh Enfys - I love your stories about the grandbabies!!! They all remind me so much of mine which are now all here in the same town! Fun and Exhaustion!!!!

    Thanks for the tip on the Promarkers - I just ordered 4 of the 50% off sets and I can't wait to get them!

    Beautiful card - TFS!


  12. Just love that card! Very nice, indeed!
    Looks like some fab new colors from Letraset, wonder if they will have them here in the stores in the States soon?!?!
    What a fun time you must have had with those boys. I'm sure they had just as much fun as you did!

  13. How amazing! Lots of wonderful memories and a great card to!


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time
