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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Jigsaw embellishment

Good Morning All
I bought a jigsaw a while ago from the charity shop, I wanted to paint the pieces and use to make embellishments.
Here is a card I made using one of the embellishments.

I attached a butterfly to the bottom of the piece with a jump ring.
Cut a heart from corrugated card and stuck some flowers on top.
Added some leaves and a feather and stuck the whole thing onto a pierced square.
Then onto a piece of Pixie Powdered card.
I think it looks OK.

As we speak I should be on the train to Sheffield to meet up with John Next Door.
My sister and I are going to visit Phills Martins shop while we are there.
Lock my purse up!!!!!

What a terrific idea to use pieces of an actual puzzle I've been toying with buying puzzle dies but I'm going to trawl the charity shops instead!
I hope you enjoyed your trip to Phill's shop
