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 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

Now for todays card


Pale lemon A6 card blank
Quilled flowers made from goodies sent to me by my friend ChrisLee over on Docrafts site, she sent me a lovely box of flowers, paper strips to make flowers and those gorgeous green flourishes.  The flowers centres - Chris uses the strips of paper from her paper shredder- A girl after my own heart - waste nothing!!!!!!!
She also sent me some punched border strips, she is so kind,
and I used one as a mask to distress ink the pattern on each side.
Pin made from jewelery stash
Tag and sentiment from freebies on Astris Artistic Efforts - a wonderful blog
Pearls cut from a string and re-used
Ribbon from Joanna Sheen
