About Me

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 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

Pretty In Pink

Good Morning All
Just to let you know I am feeling better with my back.  I have been having my injections each day and the last one today.  The pain is alot less and just discomfort really, at night, so still not sleeping good, but then I never do anyway.
Thanks to everyone who joined in with my challenge last week, I had fun visiting you all even if I did not have time to leave comments on all.
The challenge this week at
Allsorts  has been set by Sarah and it is 'Pretty In Pink'.

For this easel card I used a Passion for Stamps image which is a lovely cute pair of bootees, obviously coloured pink and mounted onto a Nellie Snellen heart die.  The sweet circle sentiment is from Netty HERE and I attached it with a cute clothes peg.  I love the cute teddy  bear ribbon, this has been in my stash for years.  The papers are Forever Friends.

Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes  + Sentiments

I made another card using a  very pretty Nicecrane design.

I mounted the pre-coloured image onto white card die cut with a Nellie Snellen Multi Frame die MFD030, then on to pink card cut with Spellbinders scalloped circle.
I embossed white card with Tied Together embossing folder, interspersed with pearls and pink gems.  Added feathers, ribbon with a pearl buckle.

I used pink paper for the insert and punched the edges with a heart punch

Back ache is rotten Wendy and always seems worse at night, but the speedy attention of your medics out there is impressive.

Cute baby card, hope you have a good weekend.

HI Wendy, These are gorgeous creations and I was really proud to see my circle sentiment on your card too. Thanks so much for the credit. :0)
Have a lovely weekend.

Jacquie said...

A couple of beautiful cards there Wendy,love the designs.

Glad your back is a little better, though I think once a bad back always a bad back, very hard to get it sorted as its the core of the body isn't it, in use constantly. Hope you are getting plenty of rest.

Love & Hugs

Wow Wendy , you always have the prettiest images, I love the colors of your cards, they are both gorgeous...so happy to hear the edge is taken off with your back.. You will have to put pillows behind you so you don't roll on your back and put one between your knees, that helps me sleep better, but I am sure you have tried everything..have a fantastic day my friend!!!! hugs
