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

Organza Flower and bling

Good Morning All
My card this morning is a Tilda image coloured with my Promarkers.
The large flower is made from organza and I learnt how to do this from Christina at Card Making Magic and this link goes straight to the video tutorial where she shows how to make different styles of these flowers using a heat gun, it is so easy.
The rest of the card is a stamped sentiment, gems, paper flowers, a homemade bead decoration and a swirl from Zva Creative (I won) and a tiny butterfly die cut with gems in the middle, all mounted onto embossed white card and matted onto red card to match the flower colour.

PS:  I think I feel some candy coming on, maybe for Valentines day.  I was thinking this morning, how blogging has changed and filled my life.  When I started, I thought I would never get used to it - entering challenges etc, but now it is  a major part of my day.  And I have made som many wonderful friends.  I think the candy will be flowers and gems, I will get it together and post it on here next week. 
My eldest is arriving on Thursday with his partner so we will be busy going out but I will still find time to visit and all my DT post are scheduled, fingers crossed.
