About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain 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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Flourishes (and Recycling)

Good Afternoon all.
A gorgeous day here.  We have just got back from a lovely walk down by the river and through the citrus groves.

I think I have mentioned before that I hate to throw anything away and this card I made using the negative from a flourish die cut.  I made it the main focal point and decorated round it with beads and wire from my jewellery stash.  Punched flowers- the green ones are a Martha Stewart punch.  Parchment butterflies (any bits of parchment I have left I use either my flower punches or butterfly punches ).  Peeloff sentiment and gems added.

I am entering this into-

Cropstop challenge # 64 - flourishes

Best bit of advice I received was to never throw out the negative of your dies or punches.... could always be used! Thanks for proving so beautifully! Thanks for joining in the fun at www.CropStop.com (Kristin)

Oh, what a clever idea to use the left-over piece after cutting out the flourish! Definitely got to try that! Thank you for joining in our CropStop challenge! Hugs, Rosie
