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

Fancy Flourishes

Good Morning All
Charisma Cardz Challenge time again and the theme has been set by Natalie - Fancy Flourishes.




I,ve tried to show in the picture how the image and flourishes are behind the window.


I,ve used brown and green ribbon and tied the sentiments on with twine.
This is a picture with the front folded back to show the image and flourishes.


I stamped some flourishes using 'My Paper World Stamps' and heat embossed them.  Added my bugaboo image and some die cut flourishes.  As the image it abit autumnal I used this die cut ( one of Johns Next Door) that has been on my desk for ages and used it as a window with acetate.  I added some of my homemade sentiments and liquid pearl dots on the branches.

Sponsors this week are ----
Bugaboo 
And
Pink Cat Studio     5 digis

  1. Hi Wendy
    Wonderful card and brilliant use of the Just Swinging die. I think people said recently that they struggled with ideas for this die but I love the way you have. The inside is great too.
