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
I was lucky enough to win some candy from Brenda from Floral Fantasies Here which I shall show on a future post.
Included in the parcel was a little notelet card and I recycled it into this card.
This will go in the box for the charity.
I just had to show you these two pics.
This is Tess, about 5 months old now.
And this is a pic of Hollie aged about 6 months
So much alike dont you think.
Cant wait to get my hands on them after Ally Pally in afew weeks.
I went to the China store and bought some large plain brads in gold and silver colour.
I dipped onto my Sticky Pad ready to emboss with glittery powder.
These are green ones and these turned out the best.
The bronze ones are using CE fine embossing powder
and the silver are using Stampin' Up powder.
They both went very smooth.
The ones on the far right are using glitter on Anitas Clear gloss.
I had fun making these and the green ones will be good for my Christmas cards.
It was this gorgeous girls Birthday yesterday, 4 years old.
She's on holiday with the family and she came out in Chicken pox the day they were leaving, hence the spotty face in the 2nd pic.
Obviously she was feeling well.
Much better getting these illnesses when they are young, I had chicken pox when my two were little, when they had it, and boy, was I ill.
I was laid up in bed for a week and had to have the Doctor out as I was in that much pain.
Thanks goodness my Mum was around to help with the boys.
I think they were about 3 and 5 years old.
We Skyped yesterday morning while she opened her presents which was lovely.
