About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain 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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Good Morning All
I have been cutting out again, Gruffies is the object of my affection this time.  I think this decoupage image is so cute.
This would have been a good  card to send to my eldest Son whose birthday it is today, he does love  his bed!!!!  Mums button tin has been raided again and more of my flowers crocheted with twine and a butterfly.  I used the negative from a border die cut along the bottom and embossed dark green card to mount it all on.

I wish Lee a happy birthday today and hope he raised lots of money at the weekend for Alder Hey Hospital.  He took some of my cards to sell to help raise funds at a dinner on Saturday night.  The staff at this hospital were exceptional when Lucas died and Lee is doing a sponsored skyjump in August to raise more money for them.

  1. Really cute image Wendy! I love it you have done it really well.

    BTW I did not think you were being odd I think I know you from your posts better than that.

    I too make typing errors on my blog the speed we have to do things it is a wonder I don't make more!Even when we proof read we see what we want to see! :)

    Good card today children can be quite hard to do cards for especially I find boys between 8-14 not a child not an adult.
