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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Challenge card

Hi all
Another gorgeous day here in Spain.

This is  a card I have made for the Docraft challenge `Bear recycled Christmas card`
and a challenge on Gill M`s blog.
I have used brown and white card from Christmas cards and some gems.  The decoupage bears are from the Cuddly Buddly site. The rest is from my stash.  The paper flowers I have made myself - some from a punch and the others are quilled.
I love this easel design  for cards, it looks so effective.

It took me a while to get my crafting mojo back, I seemed to have lost over christmas, what with afew family worries, but, hopefully now things are getting better.

Happy Saturday to you all.

  8. Lovely card Wendy!

    Easels are one of my favourite styles of cards, especially twisted easels!

    You can clearly see the teddies have been decoupaged. What type of glue medium did you use?

    Well done and thank you for entering the challenge.

    Good luck!

    Hope all is well with your family worries, there's nothing worse.
