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

Twisted Easel Wedding

Good Morning All
Hope you are not too wet there.  Watching the weather reports and there are flood warnings for the North West where we used to live.  And it showed Blackpool on TV  and there was torrential rain, it looked so bleak.  More excuses to stay in for all of you at that end of the country.

Todays card, from me, is one I was asked to make for Linda (Animal Aid Charity) for a friend of hers, getting married after 29 years together.

DL cream card blank
Pearlised card
Die cuts hearts of gold mirri
Die cut cream hearts
Blinged up with lots of flowers - Cream Spellbinders Blossom one, silk flowers and leaves from USA and small paper ones bought on Ebay
Joanna Sheen ribbon holding two wedding rings (from USA), bride & groom sticker (from USA)
Homemade pearl pins
Small envelope at back holding prints of two greyhounds which Linda wanted on the card somewhere as the lady used to own one
Note - all bits from USA I have in my stash for over 5 years, I am trying to use my older bits
