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 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

Circles no Squares for Allsorts

Good Morning all
Allsorts Challenge is hosted by Kath.
Kath joined us last year and this is her first host and she wants circles.
As I dont have any big, big dies I used a bought card base, a rectangle, not a square, and used lots of circle dies, S/B scalloped Circles and S/B Butterfly Circles. 
 Circle sentiment and doilies too.
When I made this I had been practising my quilling and this is some of it, mounted onto a scalloped black circle to make it stand out

Two types of ribbon as we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons

And we also have a pair of tickets to the NEC Spring Hobbycraft show 17th - 20th March to give away.

  9. This is really lovely Wendy, great quilling , tried it once but gave up the ghost. Lovely colours and papers.
    Glad you did a different card to a full circle card as I did a square card with a circle to show that it was ok to use a square card but the image should be on a circle and as a few had posted full circle cards I thought I had better do the other option, if you follow that.
