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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Shabby Pink

Good Morning All
Todays card is out of my comfort zone.  I dont really do distressed and shabby but John Next Door does some beautiful creations using his distress inks and sandpaper etc.  He gave me a card blank on Sunday and said 'see what you come up with using this' so here it is.  He had done the stitching round the edges and roughed the edges up.
It is not too shabby but I cant help but want everything symetrical.  I even diecut the flowers and scrunched them up then inked them over, totally alien for me but I may get used to it!!!!  You cant see it too well on the pic but the trellis diecut has been cut from Core-dinations card and distressed too.
