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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Memory Box Flowers

Good Morning All

First I have some links for yesterday's post, some have asked for.  If any of you do Facebook there are some groups on there for book folding and they have tutorials for 2 and 3 liner folds and some free patterns too, lots of helpful advice. One is called Crafty Hana's Book Folding 
another is
Newbie Book Folding


When we  have our craft meeting on Fridays, if any of us has bought new dies or embossing folders, we always take them and let other use them.
When Val was undergoing her eye surgery, she had taken delivery of this gorgeous Memory Box Die, so I used it for afew days and cut out quite afew to use in the future and this is one of those.

It is so delicate and pretty so I kept it mono and fairly simple, just added afew butterflies punched from centura pearl card, a sentiment and a Cheery Lynn flower.

Hi Wendy,
what a great card, and a very lovely design.
I love what you have created with that die, as I have been very tempted to buy it myself.
Just really great to have a craft group where you can use each others dies.
One of my blog friends lent me her die once, but it meant posting it to me, and me posting it back, and I was worried it would get lost in the post as it sometimes can do.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
