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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Sunday Mojo No. 7

Good Morning All
The challenge from John Next Door only arrived on my window ledge yesterday morning, I did not think he was going to supply any goodies this week as he has, and will be very busy for the next few weeks as he is appearing in out local Am Dram production called 'Bewitched' so he is in training so to speak.
This was the package
 It is a pack of card blanks, a sheet of toppers, 4 sheets of coloured card, a length of material, a mirri oval and 3 chip board buttons.  The toppers were so gorgeous I had to make more than 1 card so here they are.
   This is the first four.

 This is an A4 made with the yellow card.  I was not sure about putting the yellow, green and cream with lilac but one of the toppers has lilac flowers on so I thought I would try it.

This one is very plain and simple, just one of the toppers cut into a scalloped circle, inked the edges and a sentiment added.

I cut the aperture from this one and cut a fancy circle and stuck one of the toppers to it.  Added a butterfly and a sentiment. and gems.
I think I  like this one best.  I used the cream card and folded into an easel but added acetate over the last two folds and put one of the toppers inside and mounted another one onto the mirri oval and stuck on the outside.  Tied some ribbon through the chipboard buttons as shown.

Dream Valley Challenges # 55 - Things with Wings
This the final one I made last night.  I stitched some of the fabric into a flower and it was a bit lopsided so I stuck a bow over it , added afew butterflies and bits and bobs.
