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

Not A Card for MAWTT

Good Morning All

Moving Along With The Times Challenge is for both teams this time and will run until 2nd Jan.
The theme is
  Anything But A Card
I made a wreath from  torn pieces of a quilt cover.
The strips are about 1" wide

I tore them so that the edges would be crinkly and shabby

I bought this polystyrene base from the China store.

I had this gorgeous ribbon from Crafty Ribbon HERE and it is about 3" wide so not really suitable for cards.
But I wanted a good way to show it off.

This is how it looked with the strips tied around.

Then I tied the ribbon into big bows with white satin ribbon around the middle

Added a couple of wooden Christmas decorations


Added a cracker made with JND die
and I am thinking I may add some little bells I have in my stash too.

Some of us are giving a prize for this challenge so why not pop over and have a go.

What do you think??

Crafty Ribbons are sponsoring this one for us and will give a bundle of ribbons for a randomly chosen winner.

Wonderful th8ngs you have made Wendy. Thank you for sharing these. I fully intended making a Christmas wreath but have run out of time now. Perhaps I should make one after Christmas ready for next Christmas. It will get done then.
