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

Fly Away Teddies

Good Morning All
We had a very late night last night and I have only just got up and had a quick swim.   We had neighbours round for a BBQ and then went into the village to watch 'The Beatles' - a Spanish tribute band and they were very very good.  It is fiesta week here in Benijofar so there is something going on nearly every night this week, culminating a a massive streeet parade next Saturday, and when I say massive I mean massive, last year we came home before it ended and we hade been there for over 3 hours!!!!!  Last night the band were meant to be on at 11pm , but this being Spain, manaña, manaña, it was about 12.40 and we didn,t get home until well after 2am.  They were on in the school playground and all the families were there and the tiny kiddies were full of life and dancing away to the music.  They do everything late at night here because it is too hot during the day and early evening, it,s their way of life but still seems a little strange to us, going out at 10.45pm.  Next Friday it will be the same again as a 'Queen' tribute band is on and Queen are my fave so we will definately be going to that.  Tonight there is a homemade car/gocart push on the hills at the top of the village so we are going to watch that as we didn,t see it last year.

Anyway onto todays card, and it,s back to parchment.  I did this one a while ago and it is very quick and easy, not alot of embossing, but I think it looks great.
The pattern was for a baby card as the sentiment reads 'Just Droping in to  Welcome the New Arrival' but I think it could be made for a general birthday card too.  It is a DL size.  Coloured with pencils on the reverse. Mounted onto purple card

Hi Wendy, oh how I admire parchment crafting . . . it's something I want to try but not until I have the time to really do it justice.

Your card is a real work of art and I love those sweet little teddies and their parachutes!!!

Thank you for joining us at Ready Teddy Go challenge this month and hope to see you again really soon.

Good luck in the draw
Warmest wishes, Julie Ann x
