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

Parchment Flowers

Good Morning All
As I showed you the other day, I am doing abit more parchment, and here is another one.

I love the way this one has turned out, It is very easy but looks very effective, with the white work and colour behind it.
After doing parchment there is inevitably odds bits left over, so the other day, I got them all out with some punches and went to work and this is what I came up with.

Lots of tiny flowers, that I layered up and added    gems to the centres.

I think the largest of these is about 3/4" in diameter and the smallest, less than 1/2".  The tiny, tiny gems I used on some, I have had for years, I bought them in a multi pack years ago

Hi Wendy
Not that your normal cards aren't great, because they are, but I think your parchment ones are always my favourites as they are just so stunning and this one is no exception. You have a real talent with this area of craft Wendy.
Have a great weekend.
