I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum.
Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him.
I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx
Pop over to the challenge blog to see what all the DT have made.
I am also looking for another DT if anyone is interested in joining us.
You would only need to make once per month and comment for 2 weeks out of 4.
It was lovely to get back to Craft Club on Friday.
But I will be missing again next week as we are going away for the weekend with afew friends.
The gifts I gave out to the girls were Tea light candles in a pretty box.
This is the challenge this time and it will run for 2 weeks again.
I gave the ladies a sheet from this decoupage pad I got free from Joanna Sheen plus a couple of wooden buttons.
Do with them what they wish.
If anyone wants to play along just use a sweet / cute image and add 2 buttons.
Just abit of fun.
I made a Tag with one of the images from the sheet.
I decorated the inside of the card with another of the images.
And with the last piece I stuck it on the envelope.
Been home for a couple of days and we got Rico back home on Wednesday and today is my Craft Club, Yehhhh.
Decided to tidy my craft room so in total chaos and cannot craft at all.!!!!
I need to empty a unit John Next Door gave me to make room for a free standing fan for summer.
So I have to find space for all the stuff in it!!!!
How do you all store your stamps?
Inks and blocks?
Before I went away I was desperately trying to clear my scraps.
This is one I made.
Scrappy bow with seam binding and one of my smaller pins.
MAWTT challenge is Girls Birthday so I have made Hollies Birthday card, not until August but I always work well ahead.
I have made this style of card before.
It has 4 drawers in the base and is an easel card on the top.
She has owl curtains in her bedroom so
I added an owl charm too.
It is a standing joke that when I go over to see Hollie I always take some hair bands and clips.
So I made a couple of hair decorations from satin ribbon from Crafty Ribbons to put in one drawer and I shall buy some more bits to put in the others.
