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

Flower Power

Good Morning All
This is my second week as DT member for Allsorts Challenge and I,m loving it.  It is Traceys turn to set the theme for this week and it  is 'Flower Power' which is a brill one for me as, if you are a follower of mine, you will know I love, love, love making flowers.
 The sponsors this week are Ribbon Girl and My Heart Pieces.
I have never made this design of card before but I saw it on Cardmaking Magic.  You make an aperture in a piece of card then pleat a piece of patterned paper and make into a flower and glue behind the aperture.  The next pic shows a side view.
You can just see inside where the pleats are but I put this pic on to show the card stand I attached to the back of the card, once again, Christina at Cardmaking Magic shows you how to do these.
I blinged this up as much as possible - Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms in different shades of creams and beige and browns, some with pearls in the middle, ribbons, a homemade pin, leaves and swirls.  The base card is covered with 'Hot Off The Press' paper and tag (freebie with a mag last year)
I hope you all join us with this challenge and have fun.
