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

First of Many

Good Morning All
These are the first of the cards I mentioned yesterday.  
You may be bored by the end of the week  LOL.

 This is a pack that was given to me.  I could not fathom out how they folded so I took them to our craft meeting and one of the ladies showed me. There are various colours and they are shaded. Some are folded like this, some are plain, some have acetate wraps so I will show them throughout this week.
 I have been making the flowers too, just wetting and squishing, similar to the tutorial on page at the top of my blog.
The gem butterfly is from local China shop and I stuck it onto acetate and cut it out, silver ones are waste from Dufex decoupage sheets.

Once again this is all stuff that has been in my stash for ages, I think the big flowers are Papermania from one of the Docrafts goody bags, so they must be afew years old.
I,m using all my older pins, I think I have progressed onto making more beautiful ones.
