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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

New Home card

Hi all

Afew weeks ago I bought 3 bunches of flowers from a local cheapy store for 1.65 euro per bunch.  I bought them for the individual petals, to take apart and make blossoms for my cards and here are some on the following cards.

Here`s the bunches of flowers -
There are loads of petals on each bunch and I can use some of the leaves too.

This `New Home ` card is a  decoupage of a little bird house and  three of the petals and four leaves used from the above flowers and highlighted with a gem in the centre.

Another decoupage image of a little boy and more of the petals highlighted with gems.
I,m going to enter these in -
