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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Parents to Be Box Card

Good Morning All

A neighbour / friend asked me to make a card for her Daughter and Son In Law, as they had just found out they were going to be parents for the first time.

I wanted to make something really special as I knew it would be a Keepsake for them.

I decided to go with a box card as they are so easy to make and yet look so wonderful.
On the two side flaps I put a sentiment for the Proud Parents To Be.
Then just added lots of embellishments for the popup bits - flowers, balloons, presents etc etc.

Marlene was very very pleased with it and I hope her Daughter is too.

Craft Fair went very well on Saturday, thank goodness.
Sold quite afew cards, Memory Books, Bead Pins but no book folds, but I did sell the Hedgehog.  Still happy though.
Going on Airplane tonight to see family so I wont be blog hopping as much, but I have scheduled my posts.
