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

Good Morning All

A busy day today as I have my 'fat club' and then it is our Spanish Christmas lunch and also MIL here at the moment to keep J. company while I,m in UK. (Going Sunday Whoopeeeeeee.)
More decoupage today.  Do you ever make a card and really, really like it.  I did with this one.

I have had this die cut decoupage for years and I needed some 'Get Well'  and  'Sympathy' cards for my charities so I am using alot of flower decoupage.

I made a hinged card and the pink card used for matting is a recycled birthday card (people give me their old cards and I recycle them by using the plain coloured card to emboss or mat and layer.)

The heart paper been in stash for years, I think it was free in Cardmaking Magazine.

The leaf die is Marianne Creatables CR 1253.

Stamped sentiment onto a pink label die cut and tied twine through the holes.
