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

Ribbon Bows

Good Afternoon All
Wow, wow, wow, it is hot here.
Too tempting to stay in the living room with AC and fan on.
The trouble is, it feels like walking into an oven when you walk out of here.
I have just been in my craft room though for about an hour to make these 3 cards to show off the ribbon bows I made last night, as I wanted to get them on the selling page here (at the top of my blog) and on Facebook.
They are made with Grosgrain ribbon and about 2"

A pretty adornment to any card

This card is following a sketch that I set the girls in my craft club as we are off for 2 weeks while the bar is closed.
It was going to be a Baby Boy card but I didn't think the flowery paper suited so made it into a Birthday card instead.
The larger butterflies are double heat embossed

I have made afew following the lines, they all go to keep my boxes stocked.

It's quite good fun following a sketch, I have decided to give them one each week and to bring the cards they make the following week for us all to see.

Well I hope you like my bows and cards.
I would love you to buy some, just email or comment .
Thanks for looking.

Such beautiful bows Wendy. I'd like it a bit warmer here but no way could I manage in those temperatures! I have suffered from heat stroke in the UK on more than one occasion! Christine x

Hi Wendy, love your new bows. Another one for you to show me how to make. Love your blue sketch card. I'veonly made one up to now but will be great to have another sketch to have a play at.
I'm like you. In the house with the AC on.
Love Valxxx

Hi Wendy
Lovely set of cards.
Mr D hates AC when we go away so we have to have it switched off at night!
