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

Golden Wedding Card

Good Morning All

I made this card afew weeks ago.  The lady that runs my 'fat club' asked me to make a special card for another member of the class.  The lady was abit upset that her family could not get over to Spain for the celebrations, so I put my thinking cap on and 'voila' - be warned, this is a long one, lots of pics.

I put two lots of inserts at the back so that all the members could sign it.  I punched them with a hearts X Cut punch.

And I made a box for it with an acetate front and decorated it with more flowers.  I tied a ribbon all around to keep it together.
