About Me

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

Parchment Border

Good Morning All
I have decided to clear my scrappy box, this is the box I keep by my desk and into it goes allsorts.  Bits of card, paper, die cuts, embellishments etc etc etc.
So this is the first of many cards I made starting last Saturday.
I was determined not to make anything else until this box was empty, totally.
When I buy any new stash I always cut or stamp afew to try it  out and some of these go into my scrap box.
This Sue Wilson striplet is one of those.
As you know, I cant sit watching TV doing nothing so I sometimes do abit of pricking or parchment work and this is one of those too.
Added the two together to make this card, joined with a piece of Satin ribbon.
