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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Blue Easel

Good Morning All

I made this for a challenge which had a sketch to follow, I dont usually go for these, but I have had to do a couple for DT blogs and really enjoyed them.  This one is on Hobby Cutz Challenge.  

I made and easel card from PMD hammered white card.

I wanted to do something abit different with ribbon so I put two strips of the red sticky tape parallel with each other and alternated the two shades of blue satin ribbon.
The circle sentiment is from Netty  HERE and I stuck this on a  scalloped circle that was in some candy I got from Mau afew weeks ago.  I added a charm and put a ring on it to put it  through one of the holes on the circle, so it hangs free with it being an easel.

The flowers are Cheery Lynn Roses die, I still love these dies so much,  and Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.
