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

First Colouring

Good Morning All
I thought I would post these two cards today.  They have been sitting in my photo file for a long time.  They were two of the first images I coloured with Promarkers, trying to get my shading right.



I think I may have progressed abit, but I have to admit that colouring is not one of my preferred crafts now,  I did quite enjoy it when I first started but I get frustrated with it now, I dont think it ever looks too good, compared to some that we see on blogs.
I, obviously, still do some for DT commitments, but I prefer to use pre-coloured images if I can.  Is that lazy?
Anyway, these are two simple cards, fairly CAS I think. It is a Forever Friends stamp.

Back to making more bead pins today, too hot to sit in my craft room so I will stay in the lounge with air-con.
Just had a Skype with Hollie, Mum has taught her a couple of Spanish words - Hola and Adios so cute.
I,m hoping they will be able to get over here soon.

  1. Morning Wendy, I'm with you on the colouring theme, I prefer an image already coloured. I think it's because I cant wait to get onto the next stage of assembling the card to spend too long on colouring in. Your granddaughter is adorable. Have a good bank holiday weekend ( is it a bank hol in Spain ?). Janice x

  2. Hi Wendy,

    They are still beautiful cards and I don't think the colouring is bad at all. I'm like you I prefer coloured images, don't find the time to sit and colour images too much.

    Love & Hugs

  6. Hi Wendy
    Nothing wrong with your colouring. I only have watercolour pencils and poundshop felt tips as I have no inclination to colour unless I have to because I know it wouldn't look very good lol!
    Gave the boy a hug for you yesterday.
