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

In Love

Good Afternoon All
I told you the other day that I had been to my local craft shop and bought some Liquid Pearls and how much I loved them.  At the same time I bought two Cheery Lynn Dies 'Roses', both medium and small and I love love love them.  Here is a card I HAD to make to use some of them.
I used one of my 36cm pieces of card folded at 12cm intervals to make an easel style.  The tags are from Astrid, she has lots of freebie designs here.  The corners are from Cheery Lynn too.  Stamped sentiment onto scalloped circle with liquid pearls around it.


Close up of the flowers, some I added a pearl in the centre and others I used the Liquid Pearl.




The thing I love about these dies is, you can make the flowers as closed or open as you like.






These are a few that I have made and you get the star shaped bit to use as the base of the flower.
They cut separately so you can build the flowers with as many layers as you wish and I mix both sizes.

  I just love these,as you know if you are a regular follower, I just love making flowers.  I sat there last night with my craft tray on my lap and made loads in different colours, mostly I used pearlised paper which has been  in my stash forever (at least 5 years), but I did make a few with plain white textured paper that I can ink in different colours to match other embellishments I am using.
