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

Forever Friends 'Anything Goes' Midway reminder

Good Morning All
This is to remind you that the Forever Friends Monthly Challenge is half way through and for my DT card I chose a Bugaboo image called 'Butterfly' Tag.




 
I made a crochet butterfly and stuck it on a Cheery Lynn heart die cut.  To be honest alot of the other bits were on my desk just waiting to be used.  When I cut anything, I always cut two or three and I always keep the waste bits, which I have used here on the corners. 



CHALLENGES ------
Flutterby Wednesday # 239 - Open
Catch the Bug Challenge  - 3 Strikes
 






And here is my Forever Friends creation, I have tried to do something a little different.





 A base 6 x 6  white card folded at 6" then 7.5", 9" and 10.5.

I bought a brilliant Forever Friends pack when I was in the UK at Easter called 'New Arrival' ultimate Die cut pack and it had loads and loads of stuff in it - Diecuts, sentiments, papers and letters, so all the images and sentiments are from this pack.  I also bought a lovely pack of blue pearl embellishments including the stars.

Crochet hearts with a pearl centre.
Ribbon from stash and two heart shaped brads.







This is the side view showing how it stacks up and I glued a little stand on the back.







This is the back and biggest layer.  I use X Cut Large dies for the shape.





This is the second layer, I used different shades of blue card and inked the edges of the pale ones.

Finished card decorated with crochet hearts, ribbon, heart brads, heart button with twine tied through it and blue pearls and stars.





I hope you like my cards and they have given you a little inspiration to hop over and join in this months challenge.
