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

Butterflies

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is 'Butterflies' so that is a great theme and I,m sure there will be lots of entries. 
As you know I adore butterflies on my creations so here goes.
This is the second card I made for this one because we were given some gorgeous new images from Nicecrane and this is one of them and I love it.





I kept it nice and bright to match the butterflies.
Homemade sentiment attached with a button, leaf embellishment from Hobbycutz.  The large white flower I made using the technique on the  tutorial at the top of my blog HERE and that's what the easel props behind.
**************
CHALLENGES
A Little Bit Crafty - Flowers

Die Cut Divas - Use at least 1 embellishment



For this one I used this beautiful kingfisher  image from one of the sponsors 'Nicecrane'.  I have only ever seen one once in my life and it was a gorgeous summers day walking by the river.  So when I saw this image it reminded me of summer and therefore, butterflies.  I used oranges, yellows and pinks.  All the butterflies are cut with Marianne dies and the backing paper was free in a magazine.

I used another Marianne die to cut this for the inside and put another butterfly in there too. 

Sponsors this week are ---Nicecrane and Digistamp Boutique
