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

Good Morning All
My lovely crafty friend Val bought me a lovely Santoro set for Christmas.
It includes lots of decoupage, toppers and papers.
So I have been making afew cards with it.

Whenever I photograph purples and blues they never look true, if you know what I mean.
I know John uses a white light box but I,m afraid I cant go to all that trouble, dont have the room!!!!

Hi Wendy
Wow, you have been busy and these are gorgeous. Like Annie, I use white or cream card behind my cards and snap them in the brightest spot in the house but recently, I bought a daylight bulb for my desklamp and I've used that to photograph on dark days or at night with good results......no boxes involved just the lamp on and card on desk.

Very pretty and the colours look fine In the past I have used a daylight light bulb A bit tricky holding the lamp high over the card in one hand and camera in the other! But it does work at a push

Littlelamb said...

Beautiful cards Wendy. Thank you for sharing these. I too like a daylight bulb. Very cold and wet here today. Hope you are having much better weather.
