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

Pink & Green

Good Morning All

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

Beautiful card Wendy
Perhaps you need some anti inflamatories. I certainly would pay the doctor or at least the chemist a visit. You can't let anything interfere with the crafting LOL.
Love Val x

Hi Wendy,

Beautiful card today,.

Oh Wendy your face does look really sore, it sounds like you may have suffered a bit of concussion, have you paid a visit to the doctors? It does look bad, you try and get plenty of rest I know what it's like not being able to wear your glasses and consequently not being able to see. Take care.

Lots of Love & Hugs

Janice said...

Great card Wendy and you are doing so well using all your dies... Like you, I've about 20 or 30. Now for your injuries, you have had them checked out by now? As Hazel said it sounds like concussion and if you're still not right you really must go see a doctor, Jx ps hope you feel better soon.
