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

Say It With Flowers for Penny Black & Challenge

Good Morning All

As part of Allsorts Design Team we can Guest  at Penny Black Challenge blog HERE.
The them for August is

Say It With Flowers.

I used PB3822K Trumpet Vase and made two cards.
This first one was made a while ago when I was playing with water colour paints.
I simply painted different colours and stamped the image over the top - simples.
The charm is one I made, attached with twine and seam binding.

I used the same backing paper and used one of JND tags, played with Mica Magics and stamped the image on top.
Added afew flowers punched from left over scraps of parchment,  half a doily and some homemade sentiments.

Now onto my normal Sunday post for Craft Club Challenge.
Instead of a sketch or Tic Tac To, I gave the ladies 1/2 mtr of ribbon each from Crafty Ribbons

I want them each to make a Christmas card or something else using the Christmas ribbon I gave them.
Here is mine, a twist pop up card using a tutorial by Gi Kerr on You Tube.
I used the cute Penguin vertical ribbon, LOTV topper.

A Bellyband with a little tag pinned to it.

This is the back and I used a cut off from this paper for the bellyband.

This is the card all opened up.

It was quite easy to make too.

Crafty Ribbons are doing a SELECTION BOX
