I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
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
This is the sorry sight in the mirror this morning.
Yesterday I felt my vision was not quite right and it must have been because the bridge of my nose was swelling so my glasses weren't sitting correctly, so the bi-focal bit wasn' t right.
So this morning my eyelids are bloody and swollen. Still feel sicky and shaky inside, and of course a headache.
I love this Cheery Lynn Ivy Corner Flourish and I have matched it with Marianne LR0168 for the Centre flower. I,m still on a mission to use lots of old stuff and the bead pins are some of the first I ever made. The white embossed background card is used bought cards that I get given, so I use the plain pieces for embossing.
I used a pearly Gilding Wax on the pink centrepiece but it doesn't show too good.
Dies Total = 57
Nearly there now, if anyone had asked me how many dies I had, I would have said about 20 to 30 LOL, and now I am upto 57
