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 Card

Good Afternoon All
I am so annoyed with myself, I went to Aldi this morning to get a couple of bottles of tipple for my Mum for Christmas, then getting them out of the boot I dropped both of them!!!  The whiskey smashed but the Baileys didn,t but I still did not want to chance putting it in my suitcase just incase it was fractured in any way,  so I had to toddle off and buy another two.  So much for buying them here to save money.  Mum is 88 and she enjoys a little tipple of an evening.
We had a lovely Christmas lunch yesterday for our Spanish class and tonight we are going out for an Indian with Dave, Marlene and Robert (neighbours).  Daves wife, Susie, has gone to UK this morning for cuddles with her Grand daughter so we said we would take Dave out.

Anyway, onto my card for today, I saw this style demonstrated on Create and Craft this week.
 I think it shows up abit better against black
It is a twisted easel style and the card is made from acetate.  I have used Forever Friends decoupage on the easel and FF paper on the base.  Very simple and no embellishments.  I think it looks like the decoupage is floating.xxxxx
