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

Deco Delights

Good Morning All
The theme this week for the Allsorts challenge is 'Deco Delights' this means 1920's Glamour and Glitz so I think this will be a really interesting one for us DT members to hop around and see all your creations.

I have made something abit different for this challenge.  It is a Lilac Garden design and Audrey has some wonderful decoupage on her site.  I got this idea from John Next Door, we were talking about designs for cards and he suggested trying this style, I hope you like it.
This is it stood up and I think it looks really stylish.  I hope you like it and will try this style of card for a special person or  occasion.                                            

This is it laid flat, it  is 3 pieces connected with eyelets and ribbon.  I put the image on the centre one and decorated the front one with a sentiment, feathers and flowers.  The end one, I used ribbon and a pin and more flowers.  It is all done in different shades of turquoise, greens and blues.  I have glitzed the image but you cant really see it on the pic.
