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

Waste Not

Good Morning All
I made this card using the packaging from a Kanban Quilling tool that I bought whilst in UK (I broke one of mine).  I just thought that the black card with grey swirls looked lovely so here it is.
Simply mounted onto an A& deckled edged card blank
Peel off lilac butterflies stuck onto acetate and cut out to make them 3D
Zva Creations pearl swirl
Peeloff coloured in lilac
Pale organza ribbon
A very simple, very quick card
I hope Naomi (Creative Bug on the Loose) sees this xxxxxx.  Naomi is a friend I have made through blogging and she wants to start quilling so I bought her one  of these tools and posted it to her while I was in UK.  I cant wait to see  her creations.

PS  Remember to have a go at The Forever Friends Monthly challenge where the theme is Ribbon so it's a nice easy one and a brilliant prize on offer and there is also a monthly GIVEAWAY announced today which is a great  craft item (not telling what  it is, you will have to hop  over and take a peek)
