I cannot believe that my baby is going to be 10 years old on Sunday!  He is very much into the new, (2015), Thunderbirds. Every morning I hear of a rescue, the countdown, '5-4-3-2-1  Thunderbirds are go!',  and the inevitable 'International Rescue, we're on our way'  -' F.A.B!'  So we are planning a Thunderbirds themed Birthday. We have a TB tablecloth,banner, balloons, his cake will be decorated with FAB 1, and two of the TB figures, (Scott and Virgil), and not to mention that my Aunt and Uncle have bought him the TB Tracy Island set......  I made him a Thunderbirds card, easy to do but it took some time to find a picture, edit it, and make a TB themed insert and envelope as well as a bookmark! Apologies about the picture, the scanner nipped off the edge, it is evenly matted on a picture of Tracy Island....promise!He will be going on his own adventure too with his school. The following day he will be gone for three days studying river life. That means three days of no Thunderbirds for us....!!!!

Not that it will be quiet here, Mme Merle has 4 little ones now, three hatched on Saturday and the other yesterday, on Mothers Day.....they haven't stopped chirping for food since.....!

Have a lovely week!



  1. Oh, is it possible that Daniel is already 10 very soon???... How fast time is flying!... :)
    A big big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him already here!!!! :D
    I'm very busy this week, but I'm going to try to do a little card for him if I can, but I don't know nothing about F.A.B and Thunderbirds, and Tracy TB island hahaha, I have no boys... :))) So, a big challenge for me ooops!
    And what a lovely pic of these merle babies!!!! Thank you for sharing Anne, They look adorable!
    Gros bisous!
