Granddad Colin’s Birthday

Monkey Birthday card
It’s Granddad Colin’s 80th Birthday and we wanted to get him something really special …..
So we bought him an abundance for flora and fauna for his beautiful garden to make it all things bright and beautiful …….
…… and then Darrell managed to source, after robustly searching the internet, a DVD set of the High Chaparral for him to watch during the afternoons when it is too wet or cold for him to go out into his said garden …. we had a cheeky peek, because High Chaparral was before our time, back in the antique days and we liked the character of Manolito very much.
High Chaparral DVD set
…. and finally Granddads birthday wouldn’t have been complete without one of our handmade cards ….. featuring us!!!
