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
It is time for a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and the theme is to use something not meant for crafting.
Now I must admit, I have used quite afew things in the past not bought for crafting eg, material I have cut off the hems of curtains HERE and HERE. There are afew obvious things like buttons cut off clothes, bows cut off underwear, Cereal boxes .................................
So I had to put my thinking cap on for something else. I used some plastic fishing line and attached a fish charm. I coloured the Dr. Digi image 'Fishing Andy' with Promarkers and mounted it on X Cut die cuts.
I tied a bit of the same fishing line through the holes in the homemade sentiment.
The easel is propped against some Dufex decoupage.
And I found this fish bead and thought it would go quite well with the colours and the theme.
