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 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

Bright Oranges

Good Morning All
Well I am getting to the end of my dies, only afew more days I think, well, maybe more than afew!!!!!
Afew of my blog friends have been counting their dies sets and I have a small amount compared to some of you!!!!!!
I was asked if I was counting the individual dies or the die sets, well it is the die sets, this means that, for example, S/B labels 4 has about 5 dies in the set but I count this as one.
Thanks for comments on my bead pins, I think they are a bargain after watching TV this morning!!
Todays is quite a bright card and I used Cheery Lynn SF-2 Stacker Flower, Memory Box  Double Ticket for the sentiment and Marianne LR0152for the decorative circles.

I quite like the way this one turned out even though oranges and yellows are not colours I use a great deal but have used them afew times during this challenge to myself.

Dies Total = 67

Hi Wendy.
I'm not usually keen on yellow myself but that and the orange look lovely on the dark background.
I'm glad you are selling your stick pins again- they are more beautiful in real life than in the picture.
Love val x

Great card design and use of your Dies.
I just DONT do orange .... and not just card.....!!!
Wendy I make my own Stick Pins ..... however after seeing the cost of the Beads Selection on C&C yesterday, I am sure yours could fly off the shelves for people who don't. Promote them as much as you can, yours are so beautiful and a very reasonable price.
Have a good day

I hope you have enjoyed using your dies again and you have shown us that we buy too much crafting stuff and don't use them enough!!!. Have a good day. Janice xxx http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com

Beautiful bright and sunny card.
I have emailed you about your stickpins after hearing about you on the Cotswold Crafter blog. I quite fancied making the pins but after seeing the price on C&C that put paid to that. Also I have RA in my hands and don't do fiddly bits. Your pins are gorgeous and are such a good price I couldn't resist. If for some reason you don't get my email my address is bp13@btinternet.com

Barbara said...

Hi again Wendy
My email has been sent back twice and I am sending to wlt27@hotmail.com


Wendy L said...

Hopefully Barbara you have got an email from me.
If anyone else has problems please leave me a comment and I will get in touch if you leave your email addy.

I'm not an orange person at all!! I really struggle with it but you have done a great job with the orange and yellow. The addition of the purple background is good. Christine x
