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

Good Aternoon All
Looking forward to tonight as 'Chess' (Queen Tribute band) are on tonight as part of the fiesta celebrations, so it will be another late one for us.

Todays card is pretty and girlie.
I made it mainly to put the ribbon flowers on that I have made but they don't show up very well as they are made with organza ribbon instead of silk, you can see how to make them here.  Really Reasonable Ribbon  Ramblings shows you how to make them on a video but one word of advice is not to pull right the way through, you will understand if you have a go.  They do look good though and I have fastened mine with a brad.  The creamcard in the middle is the 4 negatives from my previous frame card.  Sarah Kay sentiment. Gems from ebay.  Pearls from Papermania.  Corner punch from EK. Homemade sentiment tag. Punched silver butterfly and a peeloff on acetate butterfly. All rest from stash.

PS:  Dont forget the Forever Friends Challenge is still open and there is a great pad of papers for the DT team favourite.  The theme is summer holidays and your entry must have an animal somewhere on it. xxxxx  Aslo there is July give away on their blog too. xxxx
