I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four 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 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
My challenge today is a sketch and I think we have had a similar one before.
this is my card and the sketch is below it..
I used a Humphrey topper and backed onto some Butterfly embossed card.
Lets see what my ladies and you, if you want to play along too, come up with.
Gifts for my Craft Club ladies.
When I was in the UK I bough 12 assorted boxes of Tic Tacs.
Here they are about 1.50euro per box and in UK they were alot cheaper.
Made a matchbox style box with a wrap around of corrugated card and then decorated with flowers.
I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but we have a new craft shop opened and Paul and Liz have accommodated my Craft Club, and because we are sat in the shop, some ladies have asked to join us, which is great.
Paul and Liz are happy to accommodate more people.
Now onto last weeks challenge which was a decoupage sheet, I gave them all a sheet from a pad from Joanna Sheen.
And the name drawn was Dawn .
I had a new lady join us on Friday, Helen.
She had brought some fabric and cardboard with her and she made thsi lovely exploding box.
