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

'O' Christmas Tree for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge is hosted by Kath and the theme is 'O' Christmas Tree.
I was browsing Pinterest and saw this design using ribbon for a Christmas Tree and thought it would fit this theme perfectly.

I used Pixie Powders for the background.
I took a second imprint from the first one, infact I got 5 imprints.
If you watch John Lockwood on Hochanda you will know what I mean.

We have made some of these to decorate the church Christmas tree but I hadn't thought to use it as a card topper. Great idea Wendy. Christine x

Hi Wendy
What a brilliant way to use ribbon. I like to come up with different types of bow so this has given me an idea or two.
Great dimensional card.
