I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have six Grand children, five girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019.
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
I made some tags (Here) before Christmas to sell at the Craft Farye and some didn't sell so I made them into cards.
I took them to craft club last Friday and used odds of papers and card that I keep there, along with ribbons and embellishments.
They are all 5x7 and everything was from the boxes at Craft club, all I had to do when I got them home was to add inserts and bag them up to go in box ready to give away.
Some of my ladies are quite impressed with how many cards I make at club.
I think once, I made about 15 Christmas cards !!!!!
All the backing paper I used are Mulberry paper, quite old fashioned but one of the ladies broought a bundle in, so may aswell use it.
I love the brown one, it has a sparkle running through it.
I make these to put little gifts in for my Craft Club ladies and these are some I have been trying out.
The white one is the Impossible box I showed the other day.
A tiny weeny one with a belly band so cute.
No doubt you will see the others when I decide to make them for gifts as I will be showing you each week, what I give the ladies at my Club.
I shall also use some for swaps too as I have quite afew coming up over the next few months.
I wanted to show you this Impossible Box a lovely lady made after reading my post last week.
I met this lady a couple of years ago at Ally Pally when I was working with John Next Door.
She goes by the name of Little lamb.
Hasn't she made a great job of it?
I love it when someone emails me pics f what they have made after reading my posts.
Glitter floral paper from a pad I was sent in a swap
EK border punch
I just wanted to show you these two gorgeous cards I received from June (Poppyfield Crafts), one of my DT on MAWTT. She has a give away on her blog every week and I was lucky enough to be drawn and got two lovely snowflake stamps.
She sent the cards in the package to, so pretty.
Back home now, got back on Saturday night.
I must admit, it was nice to get back to my own bed and pillows, the hotel's were as hard as rocks.
