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

Engagement

Good Afternoon All

I have still not heard from my candy winner so unless I do it will be drawn again on Saturday.

I wanted to show you this card I made last year for a friend who asked me to make a card for their friends engagement.
 It is a Criss Cross with a seperate card inside it.


 I decorated the criss cross with diecuts,
 a homemade pin, ribbons, pearls, flowers and gems
    I made a band to slide over, both to pretty it all and to hold all together.





The card I used was so heavily embossed I did not think I needed to add much embellishment to it.





I added an insert and a diecut heart with a sentiment printed on the computer.
