About Me

My Photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my great 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 my new grand daughter born july 2012. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson born Nov 2013 to my elder Son. I love the bones of these kids. Thanks. xxxx

Birdie in a Box

Good Morning All
Got back home on Friday afternoon after a great Christmas in Benidorm, we had a great time and will be tempted to do the same next year,it takes all the hassle out of it, no cooking, no housework etc.

The card I am showing you today is made from some blanks that Linda (Animal Aid) gave me and this one I made before I realised how they should be assembled.




This is the whole thing assembled and inside a box I made too.





This is the card, which I made into a box shape before realising it should be glued at the sides so that it will fold flat.  Durhhhh.  As shown HERE on this post.



This shows the card and the box with an acetate window.




Top view.

The papers were free in a  magazine and the flowers are Marianne Creatables.  I think the bird cage is Tim Holtz given to my by John Next Door.

Hi Wendy. Your card looks really pretty, in fact that shape is better that how it should be. Love the box as well with the acetate front.
Glad you had a good time in Benidorm. Enjoy New years Eve whatever you decide to do.
Love Val x
