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

Christmas for Penny Black

Good Morning All
It is my turn to guest at Penny Black & More Challenge as part of the Allsorts DT.

I used this cute PB image but left it uncoloured and went with Black and White only.
I used the Pierced Ovals from Creative Expressions as an aperture and cut the smaller one for the sentiment which is heat embossed with White.

To make it stand out against the black part I mounted part of it onto white card.
Added afew resin stars and black gems.

Actually, looking at it now, I think I may just colour the holly berries in red.
What do you all think?
Well the rain has definately cooled the pool down. It was 25 degrees this morning, down from 30 but I still had my swim, 'cos I,m a good girl!!!!

Your well ahead of yourself here Wendy, but I so like the crisp monochromatic feel to your pretty card. That pool sounds just great to me.

A great card Wendy, so cute. I would add a little pop of colour to the berries, but it really is so lovely as it stands x

Sue B said...

Oh I really love this Wendy. A great idea to leave the image uncoloured. It works so well with the black and white theme. :-)
Have a great weekend
Hugs Sue B xxx

Lovely card and yes I think a little pop of red/green would really make it all stand out
Your quilling is very impressive! I tried it once years ago Glue etc has improved so much since then I might give it another go - especially as I could probably cheat and cut strips with my ScanNCut!
The photos of Arabella are beautiful What a cutie
