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
Back home from a wonderful few days in Valencia. What a gorgeous historic, old city but still very vibrant and busy. We had one day of rain but the rest were beautiful blue skies, lots of walking and sight seeing.
This week Allsorts Challenge is being hosted by Helene and she would like to see the sentiment as the focal point on your creation.
I used a stamp form Daisy and Dandelion for the sentiment and mounted this on Spellbinders Mega Classic Ovals die.
I die cut Marianne LR0206 for the Ivy and LR0200 for the trellis behind the sentiment, which is a corner die.
Cream flowers from Ebay and satin ribbon and a homemade bead pin
all mounted onto Centura pearl card embossed with a Sheena Douglas 'Taste of India' folder called Mandala, which I think looks like snowflakes.
