About Me

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

Wedding Card

Good Morning All

Hope all is good in your part of the world.
I wanted to show this card I made for a lady at my Slimming Club.  Her friends daughter was getting married last Thursday, or rather, she was having the blessing here and getting married in the UK, and she wanted a special card making for her.

 She gave me the doves that are inside the bird cage, as they were being used for table decorations.  She wanted a bird cage on it and butterflies, and she had written a verse for the inside!!!!!  I did have to ask John Next Door for help with this one.  I dont have a bird cage die for a start and he does, luckily, he hadn't packed it!!!!!!  It is all Centura Pearl card and I put acetate on the front and domed it up, if you know what I mean.  That is why the light id reflecting on it, whichever way I tried to photograph it, it was the same.

I stamped the inside and brushed with pearlised chalk and sprayed with hairspray to hold it.

 And because I made it so high, I had to make an envelobox to put it in

This is the front of the box decorated with peeloffs and tied together with organza ribbon.

I will find out today if she liked it.
