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

3 cards and Scraps

Good Morning All

Today I want to show you 3 cards made in the same way and using some scraps.
All have an LOTV Topper on which is  suitable for a Boy.


I used scraps of a similar or matching colour and made a sunburst pattern glued onto a piece of card to lay ontop of the card blank, then I trimmed all sides.

Something abit different but looks good I think.

3 Man  cards for the charity box too.

Now I know we all have a box or drawer full of offcuts of card and paper.
On my desk I have a small stack of A3 paper that I work on, they get covered in ink and writing and glue etc. 
So I decided to glue some scraps onto the top piece like a collage.
This is my first one.

Then I cut it in half to make two A4 sheets to use as pages in a Junk Journal.

They will look OK I think  once stamped on or decorated with ephemera or pockets.
Dont forget Crafty Ribbons big sale on now.

Hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.
Did any of you go to the pub now that they are open in UK.
An area in the north of Spain has gone back into lockdown due to a large outbreak of Covid again.
I hope it doesn't spread again.

Hi Wendy your cards are gorgeous. I do love that background it is great for using up scraps. You are great at coming up with ideas for using all those bits that hang around. We didn't go to the pub. We are going to a garden with friends tomorrow. I am better with outside attractions. I don't want Covid to come back again. Take care. Hugs Jackie
