About Me

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

Fancy Fold for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge is Fancy Folds.
Mine is an Acetate Easel card and I embossed the acetate with a Butterfly embossing folder from Creative Expressions.
I cut the Marianne butterfly twice, once in green card and once in parchment paper.
Lace and seam binding  with a flower to hold the easel shape.



The papers were from a magazine my sister gave me and as there was quite abit left here is another 2 cards I have ready to decorate.



I used one of them but the other is for another DT project so I cannot show you that one.



I added a tiny bow from  one of my Birthday cards to hide a cutting mistake on the circle sentiment!!!

Final week for my candy, so comment and head over to Facebook to get another chance on
Wendy's Crafty Crafts Page

I made Top 3 at Crafty Ribbons challenge on Facebook with my card for Hollie's Birthday HERE.
