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

JND Ribbon Threader

Good Morning All
 I love this card, it is so pretty.

I got  this pretty pink ribbon  from Crafty Ribbons when I won their challenge last month
It is very soft and has tiny cubes on, so gorgeous.
I bought some pearl beads from my local China store and the holes in them were too large to use for Stick Pins but I kept them anyway.
Then when I bought John's new ribbon die I knew I could use them.
I threaded them  as shown and they make the ribbon look like little bows.
I added one of my dangle charms to the bow in the corner.

So happy with this card.
I was discussing this die and this design  with John last week
And Yes John, I have posted early as I have made another one, similar but different!!!! for my DT


Can you believe that this little one, Aurora, was 3 yesterday.
Wow where have those 3 years gone.
I forgot to photograph here card before I posted it.

Rico has settled in nicely and seems very happy.
Loves his bed I made for him.
