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

Re-cycle / Upcycle

Good Morning All
My first post today is for Allsorts Challenge DT.
Brenda wants to see recycled or upcycled creations, so I used a negative from a die cut, (I do keep most of them in a file box, just incase I NEED them)

I used this image from Scrappers Delight and mounted it onto a piece of white card  embossed with a Sheena embossing folder.
I added two circle sentiments from Scrappers Delight also.
Added a few gems and a ribbon fastened with a chequered brad, to reflect a chequered flag in a race.
Sponsor is Scrappers Delight

Crafty Ribbons

Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the other DT creations.

Great biker card - perfect for my daughter's future FIL! I forget to concentrate on where I'm placing my dies to then be able to use the waste I love what John does with waste die cuts
