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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx
Sunday Dog Walk today so it will be a noisy morning for us!!!
It is a way the rescue centre raise fund, they charge 5 euro to walk, either your own dog or one of theirs.
I made some nibbles as they have a little stay behind after the walk and sell Tea, coffee and nibble to raise even more money.
I also gave them another box of cards to sell too.
Onto todays card, it is for my sketch challenge.
I used 3 thin strips of embossed card.
My tiny butterflies and a stick pin.
The sketch for this week, can be used either way, portrait or landscape.
These are the gifts I gave out at Craft Club on Friday.
I found these in a supermarket, they are room smellies.
Little glass jars with oil in and you add the sticks to them.
Tall and thin but great fun making the boxes for them and even more fun decorating them all.
Dont forget, there is a little gift for a randomly drawn name for the Sketch Challenge.
I went with my beloved LOTV toppers pad.
Matted onto bright yellow card.
Spring has sprung here in Spain.
When I walk Rico I see these gorgeous Daisy like flowers.
I just love the way they are yellow in the centre then distinctly change to white.
They nestle in amongst these purple ones too.
All grow just like weeds on the campo(wasteland)
I saw this orange tree too, looked strange having blossom and fruit on at the same time.
We are out for lunch, another giant Paella, and no doubt, afew drinks. Mmmmm.
It will have to be indoors though as the wind has been horrendous this last few days, hopefully, due to change on Saturday.
