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 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

A Man Card

Good Morning All
I was asked to make a card for a bloke, 70th Birthday and likes snooker -- Ahhggggg.

The backing paper has been in my stash for ages.
S/B Labels 6 (I think)

What more can I say, the lady was happy with it.

Did you watch John Next Door on Hochanda yesterday?
Doesn't he come up with some amazing ideas and techniques? 
I was never impressed with Pixie Powders but now I think I may have to buy some!!

Have a great week.

Hi Wendy,
what a brilliant card.
I bet the recipient loved it.
My nephew plays snooker and was in the Welsh team that just won at Leeds recently.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Wendy, just love this. What a great idea for a snooker player.
Sadly forgot John was on last night. Too busy watching the Olympics.
Love Valxx

Hi Wendy this is a stunning card I am not surprised that the lady was pleased with it. I did see John and I liked the kitchen roll technique. I have just bought some Pixie powders I have enjoyed using them, they sparkle. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Well Wendy.. not this Christmas but next Christmas my Hubby will be 70 and guess what, he is a snooker player!
You would not believe some of the things I have been asked for over the years, pigeon racing, pizza and loads more, I now tell them my name is Scholefield not Hallmark.
Great card.
Have a good week.

Great card Wendy. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Wendy
I think I would have gone "argggh" too lol! The male trinity of football, fishing and golf is usually bad enough.
You have done a fab job with the snooker so I won't make any jokes about balls in pockets lol!
