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 forgot to write my post last night so this is abit rushed.  I have been making flowers again, different types.

I got a load of these dazzlers when I was in UK in January and I saw John Next Door use use a Sue Wilson flower die  HERE that looked like quilling, and he stuck one in the middle and it gave me the idea of using these large dazzlers and wrapping them with quilling paper.  The material one is scraps from my curtains.

And here is two very quick cards I  made with them.

I inked the edges of the paper to match the blue of the other bits.

And inked the edge of the material to tone in with the paper.

Just a different idea and gives me something ot do while watching TV at night!!!!!

Have a good weekend and see you tomorrow, Slim club to this morning so rushing abit.

Hi Wendy. I really love the way you've used the dazzlers and in your usual fashion of not throwing anything away-the curtain flowers are beautiful.
Been looking up rag rugging- some great tuts.
Good luck at slimming.
Love Val x
