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

Harvest Basket

Good Morning All
I,m going out with me Neighbours today, we are going to a shop I,ve not been to before  that sells all sorts of everything I think, it should be fun.
Todays card is one I finished yesterday, I was trying to think of a different way of folding my card blank and this is what I came up with.
This is the front and it looks like a normal Criss Cross card.
And this is what it looks like when it,s open
I used a 36 x 12cm cream card from my friend in the UK, folded it at 12 and 24cm, then scored  the fronts diagonally so that they folded back on themselves.
I used a Whimsey digi called Cornucopia, which I won on a challenge a while ago, and coloured it with Promarkers.
Two types of ribbon tied in a bow - organza and satin
Sunflowers were given to me by Linda (Animal Aid Charity)
Round Sentiment is a freebie on Jak Heath Blog
Pale green doily from USA years ago
Terracota and green card is Core-dinations
Spotty paper was given to me
Yellow gems on corners from stash
I really like this type of fold so I am using it alot on my Christmas cards.
