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

Anniversary Box Card

Good Morning All

One of my new ladies at my craft club asked me to make a special card for her to give some friends.
This lady, Denise, has never crafted before she came to our club and the first thing I showed  her was  how to make was this style of box card, as they are so impressive.
She was hooked and now comes along every week and is very quiet as she beavers away, learning about die cutting and embossing.
She did not feel that she was upto  the skill level to do  a card for her friends yet, but she soon will be, I'm sure.
This is the card I made for her to give.

All the embellishments are hand made -
Bows, Pearls with diamonte surround, Ribbon Flowers on the sides.

I adore the vellum flowers with large pearl centres, so pretty.

I added 'Congratulations' Ribbon around the box
and that is the only colour there is.

She was very pleased with it.
