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

Val C's Birthday Card

Good Morning All
As promised, here is the other Val's card.
Pixie powder on acetate
How different do these two pics look, show how much of a difference the light and the background make.
On this one, the Red Lava and Firework Burst really show.
I double heat embossed the butterflies with Holographic powder.



This one looks more purple / blue.
I added pearls to the butterflies and some trailing pearls from Zsa Zsa Creations

Anyway, Val loved it and that is all that matters.

She said her Hubby kept touching these butterflies, he was quite amazed at the technique used.


The butterflies I cut from the Pixie Powder Acetate will be used on a card in the future.

Also found out it was Johns Next Doors Mums birthday on 14th Feb too.
