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

Make Your Own Embellishments


Good Morning All
This weeks challenge for Charisma Cardz  is right up my street  -  Make Your Own Embellishments,  and it was chosen by Joanne.  So of course, I made flowers, quilled ones this time and a bead pin..  I used one of the sponsors (Card Mad Fairy) images and coloured with my Promarkers.  Different shades of pink satin ribbon, a dragon fly charm and a 'Just For You' tab which has been in my stash forever.



The sponsors this week are  The  Card Mad Fairy and they will give 3 images of choice.

AND
Digi Stamp Boutique   will give winner 6 images of choice.

Have Fun.

  5. Hi Wendy,
    How do you do those gorgeous flowers? Do you use a quilling die?

  7. Thanks for the reply Wendy. I did wonder if it was something like that but your flowers look as if they have been made by a much fancier technique as they are so lovely.
    Thanks again chuck. x
