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

Red White and Blue for Allsorts

Good Morning All
It is Kaths turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week and she wants Red, White and Blue only.

I saw this technique on You Tube and Fiona (Jennings 664) used it to make a picture from using fabric and I thought it would look good using paper.

I used different scraps of red paper, patterned blue paper and, obviously, the sentiment is stamped on white card using a Sentimentally Yours Corner stamp from CE's Phill Martin range.
I wrapped some blue twine around it and added a 'Good Luck' elephant charm.
Sponsor this week is 

There are some fab creations from the DT this week.

  5. Hi Wendy, you are a multi designer and multi talented lady who have made sooo many
    different craft over the years ! Also seeing your grand children ( they are gorgeous
    by the way !) and your flowers from where you live in sunny Spain ! It has been an
    journey for me to see all your crafts from cards, bracelets, quilling, boxes etc and
    I have loved it all. I have not got my own blog, just sometimes I put something up
    in the "cafe'" and I hope to see you there soon again. Also like I said before, hope to
    meet you next time you are at Ally Pally ! Give our friend Val a big hug from me when
    you see her next, hugs Maria x
