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

Woolly and Waste

Good Morning All
Todays card is one I  made last week and really cost next to nothing to make!!!!

Both sentiments are freebies - the circle is Jak Heath and the bits stuck around them are all cut offs from border shapes or doilies
Frame is the negative from a die cut
Buttons from ebay for a minimal amount for a big bag full
Centre flower picture is left over from  decoupage sheet
NOW the woolly fabric on the left is from a China Bazaar shop here (there are loads of them and you can buy anything and everything) This was with the knitting wool and John (next door) and I saw it and both agreed that it would look great on cards. 60cents (50p) for 2 balls!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just goes to show that you can craft on the cheap.  I found some lovely red twine the other night when we were walking to the bar for tapas, so I picked it up to use at some point on one of my cards!!!!!!!!!!!

Look what came in the post on Tuesday
This was my prize for a chalenge win at Ready Teddy Go at beginning of August, WOW how brill is this..............  I have already been using them on cards I have made this week.  The holographic tiny butterflies are gorgeous and seem to match any colour scheme too.

  13. Lovely card Wendy and good use of all the left over bits and bobs. Your Prize looks great and very useful too. We are OK with the heat as long as we have the aircon and the pool. How about you? How many days left before you go to see your darling little granddaughter Hollie?
