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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Dies and Punches

Good Morning All
My brill news this morning is --------
I have been asked to join the DT for Allsorts Challenge Blog Wow, I am so chuffed.

My first challenge for them is 'Dies and Punches' so this is a nice easy one to ease me in gently.
I made a braided ribbon by following Christinas tutorial here at Card Making Magic.  Used Spellbinders Edgeabilities 'Classic Edges' and 'Classic Bracket' to cut and emboss the purple card and then stuck the ribbon to it using a glue gun.  I put a bow on the top and a punched circle sentiment mounted onto 2 Spellbinders Scalloped Circle diecuts.  The corner dies are Memory Box 'Macarena Corner'.  I stuck purple gems in each corner and pink oval ones on the edges of the purple card (these took ages as they are so tiny).  This has all been mounted on pastel rainbow coloured sparkly card (which doesn,t show very well on pic) and then stuck onto an A5 white card blank.
 This is a close up of the corner die cut, the embossing on the edgabilities and the braided ribbon.

Please hop over and join in the fun for my first DT challenge for Allsorts.
