About Me

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 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

Criss Cross Card

Good Afternoon all
Just got back from Guadamar (a town near us) with John and Mothers.  Golly, it,s hard work pushing a wheelchair, I had to leave them on the promonade and walk back to get the car as it was up hill and there was no way I was going to push the chair up them there hills.

On to todays card, it is one I have seen afew times and thought it looked really nice.  The demo I saw was from Card Making Magic.com and Christina taped it closed but I thought it would be nice left so that you could stand it up, or tie a ribbon round etc.  There are loads of possibilities of how to finish it off.
The base card is a lovley shade of brown with faux stitching round the edges with Promarkers fine tipped black pen (hard to see).
I put a silver tag on the band that goes round the card along with checked ribbon.  The flowers are made using my new Marrianne flowers dies with pearls and gems inside. The flowers are cut from some handmade paperthat was given to me and thought it would make lovely flowers). Paper from a new pad of Forever Friends 6 x 6 pad (part of a stash sent to me for having the STAR letter printed in Docrafts Creativity  Magazine last month).  The inside card is just 2 pieces from my stash with a peeloff sentiment added and lace stuck underneath it (you cant see it very well on the pic)Again sorry

I will definately be trying this style again and in many different ways too.
