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 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

Good Morning All
I,m pleased to announce that the plaques I made HERE  for the slimming club went down very well yesterday, all the girls were well pleased when Pam gave them all out.

It is my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week and I have chosen 'Transport'.  I expect to see all different types from bikes to scooters to trains, planes and automobiles.  The winner will be chosen randomly but the top 3 will be chosen by 'moi', so I will be hopping by to visit all of you who enter.

I have done a decoupage of a steam train mounted on embossed green card.  I bought these lovely embossing folders with sentiments on - 'best friend' and '1st class' - which I thought were really suitable for this card.  I stamped the sentiment on another piece of green card.

The sponsors for this challenge are ----
Ribbon Girl  - 10GBP voucher for their shop.

Flonzcraft    -  

Flonz $20 store gift voucher Also 12% discount offered on purchases to those entering the challenge

Have Fun.

And folks think my cards are bright lol!
Great card for a fella.
Sorry if Im being thick (I have yet to join the challenge world) but does the randomly picked bod win the prize but the 3 that you pick by looking at their work don't get a prize? Like I say, I may be being thick.
Have a good day. x

Your card is fabulous Wendy. I love the embossing and the smoke that looks like it is popping out of the train.
