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
I made these cards before I went to Seville on my Birthday actually (27th May).
It was the day of the cup final and I had had a bit of a bad week, depression. Probably started off with Manchester then some family problems, anyway, I felt happier after spending the afternoon in my craft room.
As you know I love making embellishments and I have loads and loads of these butterflies in a multitude of colours.
I always put a pack of them in the raffle prize at my craft club, I bet the ladies are sick of them !!!!
Anyway, onto the cards.
It started with this one, I did the parchment at my craft class on Friday, the day before my birthday.
I added a homemade gem to the centre but it had an error at the bottom so added a butterfly.
Then this one using Sue Wilson 'Cascading Butterfly ' die.
And I added one of my little butterflies to the centres of each of these.
I had a sheet of glittered, die cut squares in my stash for years, perfect for what I had in mind.
6 x 6 card blanks.
These two, I added coloured paper behind the cut out squares,
then a butterfly in each square except the centre, where I added a sentiment.
5 x 5 card blanks.
These two are smaller squares so put them on diagonally.
Same technique as the previous ones.
4 x 6 card blank, Phill Martin paper
5 x 7 card blank
So that is my Kaleidoscope of Butterflies.
