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

Good Morning All
This is the card I mentioned yesterday, using the last bits of card left from the embossed and patterned card used for making the poinsettia cards.

Two bits of the patterned not big enough to make a full mat to fit the 6x6 card blank.
S decided to push them to opposite corners.

Matted the two pieces of embossed card onto black to go in the other corners.

Then pulled a  Tree die cut from my stash,
a couple of gems and
a card made from scraps !!!!!

Hello Baby

She looks like Noah in this one.
