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

Mothers Day No. 2

Good Morning All
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.  We went to friends for  BBQ on Saturday afternoon, weather was not brilliant, after a week of lovely sunshine, it decided to rain on Saturday, but gladly, it cleared late afternoon and the sun came out again.  So we had a quiet day yesterday and the internet decided to go down so I could not Skype with my sons, so hopefully today I will speak to them.

This is the card I made for Johns Mum.


Weaved ribbon set behind a scalloped square negative cut.  The flowers are Sue Wilson die that I cut  when I was at CE Towers with John Next Door, I really do want this die but cannot afford it yet.
Homemade bead pins to finish off the ribbon bow.

  1. Morning Wendy, a great card, I've seen that Sue Wilson has brought out a die to do the weaving effect. I've done it with paper strips but not with ribbon. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. Janice xxx http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com

  12. Hi Wendy
    I love doing the ribbon weaving as I think it looks so effective. Love the colours you have chosen and I bet Johns Mum adored it.
    Time for bed said Zebedee!
