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

Green Christmas

Good Afternoon All
My, it is hot here and getting hotter for the weekend , 40 and above.

So, just the right time to think about more Christmas cards , LOL.

This style is quite easy to make
2 pieces of A5 size card - score 1 in half and the other into quarter intervals
Cut an aperture in the 2nd piece, any shape you desire
Decide on an image to dangle in aperture and make sure it will swing around freely on jump rings
Stick paper to first half before glueing 2 pieces together on 1st and 4th quarter
Bling up/decorate to your hearts desire!!!!

Mine is quite plain as it will be posted to UK, but I think you could colour 2 images and stick together for centre and put loads of flowers, gems, pearls, bows, ribbons etc etc.
I will definately be making more of this style both for Christmas and other occasions too.  Being A5 size, the aperture could be cut using my Cuttlebug and that would give it alot fancier design.
