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

Get Well Card

Good Morning All
 Have you ever thought about all the dies you have, or even embossing folders or toppers etc etc etc?

I visited my friend Val the other day and she had bought afew dies when she was in the UK and they amounted to a fair amount of money.  We got talking and I said that I never used quite alot of mine and I said I should do post on here challenging everyone to use ALL their dies, so in the New Year I will do a post that show all my dies and then posts that show creations using them one by one.
Back to today.
I was asked to make a card for a lady due to have an operation.

I created a criss cross card form a 12 x 36cm piece of card.

I used some of the gorgeous LOTV papers I won and showed the other day.

Flowers, ribbon, pins, doily and gems later and here it is.

I love this design Wendy.
Great idea regarding the dies. Can't wait to see them all ( I may have to borrow some ha ha).

I agree with you that we all have loads of dies that we hardly use. I tend to look through mine every few months and take some that I know I won't really use and sell them. Especially if I've bought a set of dies on c&c , there might be some that I don't like as much. When I've sold them I use that money to buy more craft stuff, then I feel that I've got something back.

Hi Wendy
Super pretty card that is sure to cheer up Rita. I like the unusual fold.
I think I have used all my sets of dies, at least once but I'm a lot more discerning now with what I buy.
I'm game for the challenge.
Best wishes.
