I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have four Grand children, three 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.
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
Well, what is more 'Girly' than Pink, Glitter, Ribbons and Gems?
I used -
Image called Skylar and Friends and ' Bee Happy'from Oddball Art
S/B Fleur de Lis Squares
Sentiment from 'Tilly Daydreams' paper pad from Docrafts
My bead pins
Organza ribbon, two widths to make bow
I used a new technique for me.
John Next Door did it on Hochanda a while ago. stamped an image with glue then used Gilding flakes. All stamped onto a CE Noble Pierced Rectangle.
The stamp is Alexandra from CE
Sentiment heat embossed onto a Pierced flag.
Very pleased with how this turned out and will no doubt be using it again.
Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the other wonderful DT creations.
I was asked to make a card for a ladies Grandson, 11 years old. She sent me a pic of his bedspread, underground network in London and a pair of footy boots on it.
Now that was a challenge.
Anyway, I found an old underground map in an old diary, it did have a couple of marks on which I covered with sentiment tags !!!
She always likes them personalised too.
I stuck the shirt and 'Grandson' on a piece of acetate so that he could lift it to see the old map. This was from 2010, I think, so it had probably changed by now.
She was pleased with it, which I,m glad about as I only made the one. As you may know I normally make two cards when asked, just to give them a choice.
[Allsorts Challenge DT Blog] New comment on Blog followers
Found this on another Blog Guys which explains why everyone is losing followers :)
In 2011, we announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other Open Id providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
