Bio - "Hi, my name is Wendy, and I am an avid crafter. I live with my partner Alan, and our spoiled West Highland Terrier Poppy, who rules our house! I have two grown up sons, Marcus and Simon. 
I have always crafted in some way for most of my life, beginning with knitting, crochet and sewing. I got into card making by accident. I was learning calligraphy and the card making developed from there. This is definitely my kind of craft and I love making cards.
I was a secretary/PA in a previous life and have now been retired since April 2012 giving me much more time to participate in my hobby.
I am also a keen Zumba fan and attend classes four times a week."
