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

LADYBUG - Anything Goes

Good Morning All

Wow it is getting so hot here already, we have had temps of 25 to 30. And I am going to help a friend this morning cleaning 2 apartments, stupid or what for volunteering!!!!!
Ladybug Challenge is up and running again after Samantha had been unwell, she is back to fitness again.

The theme is Anything Goes and I made this ribbon weaved card.  It is similar to the one I made for Mothers Day HERE

I weaved the ribbon onto a  piece of card and taped the ends underneath, then mounted it onto a larger piece of card and did some faux stitching around the edges.  Added a crochet flower and added a flower brad for the centre.
I,m quite pleased with how this one turned out but it did use quite alot of ribbon, not that I haven't got alot to use  LOL !!!!!!!

Why not pop over to the challenge blog and join in.

Hi Wendy, lovely vibrant card. I have done weaving cards before and they always look effective. I have used strips of book pages to weave for a different effect. Lucky you with the hot weather- still windy and chilly here in Kent. Have a good day. Janice xxx http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com

Love today's offering, lots of patience needed for the weaving.
Lucky you getting it warm. We have new thick snow on the hills we see out the kitchen windows.
Have a good day
