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

Good Morning All

What a gorgeous one it is too.

Todays card is one I have just finished and the glue is hardly dry.

I used another piece of the cream card given to me by my friend in UK
36cm x 12cm, scored at 6,12,24 and 30cm intervals and folded as shown.
Shades of lilac, pink and purple card from stash.
Forever Friends stamped and heat embossed in gold powder.
Shaded the image and the sentiment with lilac chalks so they were not too harsh (white).
Paper strips on inside were offcuts from Kate Knight 'Totally Tropical' papers.
Pink borders - Martha Stewart punch.
Butterflies and flowers a gift (see below).
Lilac organza ribbon
Purple satin ribbon
Buttons - pink with left overs from punch.
Charm  with butterfly on  was recycled from a bracelet.
Little swirls are left overs from butterfly punch
Yesterday I had a phone call from one of the ladies who runs a  charity that I supply cards to..  She said she had a bag of bits for me - Wow - What a selection of stash and all gorgeous.

She was given them by a lady asking if she new anyone that could use them (she runs a stall to raise funds for Animal Aid ) and she immediately thought of me.
