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

Embossing for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts challenge time again and the theme is Embossing, Wet or Dry.

I cut Sue Wilson Magical Butterflies from  card and acetate done with Pixie Powders, then cut the top part of the butterfly from black card and double heat embossed with Holographic emboss powder.
I mounted these onto S/B scalloped Ovals.
Then onto white embossed card which I just could not get to photograph at all.

I lifted the wing on this one to show the pixie powdered acetate underneath.

Sponsor is Sissix with 2 prizes on offer.

Morning Wendy, sorry I've not been around this past week, busy girl. Love all your makes, the baby romper suits cards look so swet, especially with the lace attached. LOTV images work well for all occasions!! And your stick pins are gorgeous....like the additional dangly bits !!! Janice http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com

This is a very pleasant change to actually see some butterflies on a card that has some great colours and an effort has been taken to use them, rather than just punching them out of coloured card. Love the way you have used the gems too. Brilliant card.
