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 went to the quiz last night with my friend Jacky, came bottom which is normal for us. We do have to compete against teams of 4 and 6 people and we did come away with a bag of sprouts!!!!!
Made some lovely embellishments on Saturday evening while watching TV.
I will package up ready for Christmas fayre and will add to selling page on FB and on here.
The card I am showing are a couple I made at my Craft Club on Friday
A stamped vellum Poinsettia to hide the ends of the ribbon.
I like plaiting ribbon this way as you can curve it around.
We had a great time on Saturday at the car rally. We watched 3 stages of it in 3 different areas, one being a timed start in Sella, the mountain village where we are going for New Year, very exciting and very noisy.
We moved on to the next viewing point and set up a BBQ and the heavens decided to open as soon as we lit it, good job we had two large brollies!!!
Five minutes and it was over, so we all enjoyed the wonderful food Andrew had taken along.
Next year we hope to be watching our friends who we went with, compete. They have been on a course to get to grips with it all. Cars are Andrews passion, especially Subaru's.
A birthday card using some pieces Annie sent me from Australia.
LOTV paper, odd bits of lace and gems.
