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, Flowers & more Flowers + Tilda

Godd Morning All

A Gorgeous sunny morning here in Spain, it,s getting very warm during the day too, time to get the cut offs out (trousers I mean).

My card today is another cute Tilda surrounded by homemade flowers, I,m really into making my own flowers whichever way I can.

It is a 5" x 7" base card folded into an easel.  One challenge I want to enter is to use no designer paper so this is all just plain coloured copier paper and plain coloured card stock. Tilda was mounted onto a die cut shape of pink card with pieces of yellow doily at each side.  Smaller dies of the same shape for the sentiments.  The two larger flowers were die cut fancy circles and folded into the flowers and glued and held with a brad. (If anyone wants to know how to make these leave me a comment and I will try to put a post on with pictures).  The rest are quilled flowers in yellow at the bottom and punched flowers in parchment and pink card.  Pearls and wire from jewellery making stash.

I will enter this into-
Papertake weekly - For the girls or Mum

Crazy #challenge - No designer paper
