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

2 DP for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is hosted by Kath.
She has chosen a theme of using at least 2 designer papers.
I used two sheets from an LOTV paper pad - Timeless Victorian.
This lovely large flower was in some candy I was lucky to win.

I inked all the edge and the corners with Plum Cobbler Colour Cloud. 

I embellished with two of my stick pins, some ribbon John Next Door gave me with one of my pearl gems on the top.
Pins and gems available on my page at top of my blog.

As our sponsor is Tattered Lace, I did set out to use a butterfly cut with their Pinpoint set, then got carried away with the flower.

So here is my another card I have put on the Challenge blog, using the pinpoint butterfly!!!!!

The sentiment is one of John Next Door's, heat embossed in gold.

Two tiny organza bows with two of my tiny butterflies on top.

I used what was left from the two sheets of 8x8 papers inside one of the cards.
Waste not want not!!!!


I have a little Bingo or Tic Tac Toe  on my Facebook Page.
Why not pop over and have a go.

Have a good weekend and make a card to join in the challenge.
