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

Negative Glittery California Collection

Good Morning All
At last we have sunshine, the weather has been abit yukky here for the last week but normality has returned !!
As promised, here is what I did with the negative of yesterdays card, as you know, I cant throw anything out or waste it.

I cut what was left of the sticky paper / card so it would fit a 5 x 7 card.
I didn't want to just glitter it so I sprinkled pink glitter first, randomly, then the rest of it with white, and I quite like the effect it gives.
I used the same My Minds Eye paper as yesterday and stuck it under the aperture.
I used a lovely decoupage flower, a bead pin with ribbon and a circle sentiment from not sure where (sorry).
The girls at the Craft Meet yesterday were quite made up with this design so we will try it again I think.
Val also said she is going to join me in my mission not to buy any new stuff !!!!!
                                                                              We will see!!!!!!! Val. xxxx

Hi Wendy. Lovely card. Pretty and sparkly.
I'll do my best to not buy any more craft stash except card and glue. There I've put it in writing so there's no going back.

Lots of love.
