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 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

White Christmas

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week has been set by Jo and it is 'White Christmas'

Well this is nearly all white but I wanted to show you this idea of using last years Christmas cards to use as embellishments.  I did this last year too and it is really simple.  Just cut a shape out and punch holes around edges and crochet round.
Added some stars to sort of match the baubles on the circle.

As I used a black card base I stuck a die cut inside for writing on.

Sponsors are--

So pop over to the challenge blog for details.

  1. Hi Wendy. What a lovely card. I love how you have crocheted around the edge of the topper (I cut up my old Christmas/birthday cards too) As I can't crochet I suppose sitting the topper on a doily would give a similar look. Take care.

  2. Hi Wendy, I remember you doing this last year. The crocheting gives it a lovely effect and makes a really pretty card.
    Love Val x
