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

Just a Note

Good Morning All
Here is another card using a concertina butterflies I made HERE.  I need to buy myself a  new scoring board, I had to borrow one from my craft friend Lyn.
She had one that has increments of 0.5 centimetres which is what I needed to make these.
I made this card using all the off cuts from an 8x8 piece of embossed card that I had used on another project, just matted them onto pink card.
 Looks OK don't you think?

A link here to a You Tube tutorial on how to make a butterfly.
Afew have asked.

I used the odd piece of paper left over for the inside of the card.

Waste not want not!!!!!
