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

Acetate Baby Card

Good Afternoon All
Hope you are all good today and those of you that live in the UK, not too damp.  We are watching the qualifying for the Grand Prix and the weather looks awful.  I spoke to my son this morning, in the North West, and he said it was quite nice there, sohopefully, you all may be having good weather.



I saw this idea on C&C a while ago.  The front of the card is cut and a piece of acelate inserted to replace the card cut away.  I decided to use a border punch on each edge.  The gem swirls are from Zva Creations that I won a while ago on a blog hop. Ribbon, tag (New Baby) and embellishment were bought in USA quite afew years ago.
 think it looks pretty and sweet, hope you do too.
