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

I hope you are all well and not too cold and wet in which ever part of the world you are in.  It is sunny here today but the last few days have been cloudy, cold and abit rainy.

My cards I want to show you today are pleated, an idea I pinched from John Next Door HERE I,m sure he wont mind!!!!

This shows how the card is folded and stuck down.

The gorgeous butterfly die is 'Tonic' Butterfly set I bought at my local craft shop when I went with John on Thursday, so gorgeous I couldn't resist it.

This one I pleated in a different way.

Homemade tags for sentiment.

The lovely ivy die is Marianne LR0206 and it comes with a little bird house and bird.

Flowers are Cheery Lynn roses die and I stuck a tiny pearl in each centre.
