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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Good Afternoon all

Happy Good Friday

If you follow me regularly, you will know that my one of my favourite things is teddies (the other being butterflies).  I bought alot of Forever Friends items a while ago and I am still ploughing my way through them on and off.  Another thing I love is decoupage and making flowers (tomorrows card has lots of flowers on it, just waiting for the glue to dry).  This card I have made for Forever Friends Challenge (amongst others).

I cut an A6 size card from pearlised lilac card, dry embossed the lower edge using a Glitter girls board and cut the front a little shorter to show the gorgeous pastel coloured lace ribbon.  FF decoupage Baby with ABC bricks.  Die cut a label from hammered cream card, inked the edges with purple ink and stamped balloons on it, again, with purple ink.  Added thin purple ribbon across the top with a tiny heart token `It,s a Girl`.  Finally stuck on a lilac plastic rattle, purple gems across the bottom embossed edge  and pearls at the top corners.  The sentiment reads `Congratulations`.

I am entering this into -

Forever Friends monthly Challenge - Embossing
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge 10 - Pearls and Lace
