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

Another single journal page today using Spellbinders Ovals.
I cut them from Kraft card and then some flowery paper that I thought matched the journal cards.I found these lovely journal cards in my stash so I just glued the bottom of the ovals so the cards can be slotted behind them.
I think they look pretty dont you?

It was very hard getting a good pic of this one but in real life you can see it better.
This is the Groovi work before I coloured it and mounted it.
It is a plate I borrowed from a friend.
This is the second one.
I used an embossing folder John gave me years ago, not Johns cuppa I think.
I embossed the Pearlised card then rubbed over it with Mica Magic.

And finally a card using an image from JMC Designs called Starlight Dakeri
I coloured her with my Polychromo pencils.
Matted onto pink glitter card and then onto gold mirri embossed with Budding Vines EF.
This is an image from our sponsor called Starlight Dakeri
Our Sponsor is JMC Designs and the prize is a collection of their digis.
Two dies and an Embossing Folder used on this one plus some pretty Picot Parchment flowers and some punched ones too. This is how I use my odd bits of parchment, small pieces get punched, abit larger get picot cut.
The trellis is a Marianne die and one of my very early ones.
This is what is good about this challenge , I am using dies that I have long forgotten.
