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

Flowers for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All

Last month when I was in UK I bought JND Gerbera die and stamps from the Ducks Doodahs, 
(very quick delivery)
As I was playing with them when I got home, I thought this card was perfect for this challenge at Craft Rocket - Flowers.

I matted the negative from the die cutting onto an ombre green card.
Added large gems to the centres and used 4 of the die cuts, made into 2 flowers.
I added ribbon across the corners to hide the black ink.
(This is to line the die with the stamped images correctly.)
I added a Mothers Day sentiment as it was approaching the day at the time I made the card!!!
Added one of my dangle stick pins to the bottom bow.

John Lockwood, I love this die and stamp set
Rico went to be clipped yesterday, he looks loads better.

Brilliant card, love what you have done with the flowers.
Rico has gone from looking like a Border Collie to a Beagle.
He will be so much cooler in the hot weather.
