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

Good Morning All

This card is one I made a while ago and never blogged it as it is far from perfect.
A blog friend of mine, Janice from Created by Jan Blog features beads on some of her cards and they look gorgeous.  I thought I would have a go and this is my first attempt.

I need to keep practicing this type 
of crafting me thinks!!!!

Have a good Day.
1 week and counting until Hollie Days.

  1. Morning Wendy,
    I think what you have done with the beads is brilliant, love it.
    What patience you have.
    I have lots of beads but don't have the patience.
    Have a good day

  2. This is very pretty and a fabulous idea Ginny x

  4. Morning Wendy, so pleased that you've had a go at beading on cards. It makes such an attractive addition to a card. Well done you, keep up the good work!!! Janice xxx http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com

  5. I think as Patricia says you need patience for this - which you have in spades I think! You only have to look at your book art. This is a very pretty card and I really like the brown and ivory look. Christine

  6. Hi I had to look closely as Ii didn't realise you'd sewn all the beads on. What a task Wendy but it looks fantastic.
    Love Val x

  17. Great idea to use beads on your card. I wouldn't have guessed this was your first attempt at doing so. Beautiful card! hugs! xx

  18. Hi Wendy
    Just catching up again.
    Nothing wrong with this smashing card. I have plenty of beads for my jewellery making but I don't think I'd get sewing them to look like Janices.
