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
Crafty Friends Challenge is my first post this morning.
The theme is Anything Goes and we are sponsored by Pot Pourri Designs
And it is one of their images I have used on my card.
I made a dress from doilies and used another doily behind the image.
All matted onto John Lockwood paper and a Creative Expressions pierced flag sentiment.
I used what was left from the sheet of paper for the inside of the card and a piece of satin ribbon.
Here are some more doilie dresses I have made for card embellishment, fun making them.
Moving Along With The Times is hosted by Carole and she has given us a sketch to work from.
This is my take on it.
John Lockwood Papers
All bits in my stash - homemade stickpin, ribbon, button, butterflies.
The image is peeloff fans onto acetate
Welcome to Pauline, I hope you enjoy your visits.
Time for Craft Rocket Challenge and the theme this time is Ribbon and / or Lace.
This is actually a banner I made here but you cant really see much of behind all the lace ribbon trim.
The trim is some I bought in USA about 8 years ago!!!!!
Matted onto embossed card and used Gilding Wax on the edges.
The centre is a Tag die from Sue Wilson with a sticky topper, years old from Create and Craft.
I thought this would be suitable for either Wedding or Baby or Anniversary.
I,m home and full of cold AGAIN.
What is it with aeroplanes????
I have been taking my vitamin C while I was away too.
Boohoo I feel yuk.
Love this way of using a wide ribbon, threading through a pearl buckle.
Backing paper is from a Docrafts pad
Tis the Season is a Tonic die
Creative Expressions Poinsettia coloured with Mica paints
