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

Lots of Flowers

Good Morning All
Forever Friends Monthly Challenge time, mid month reminder,  and a lovely one it is too, good for me as it is titled 'Lots of Flowers'. 

I love this pre-coloured Whoopsi Daisy image, she is sooooo cute.  And she is a freebie on their site (link is below)

I made it into an easel card then added loads of extras - homemade butterfly, heart shaped pin, die cuts, feather and flowers (in stash for ages), lace, Core-d-inations card.  A lovely blue paper flowers and afew smaller buds and a leaf.  All on a lovely blue flowery/stripey paper.

I decided to make another card for the DT again using Whoopsi Daisy image and I have been playing around with one of my newish Spellbinder dies - Layered Elegant Swirl.
I used a cream piece of card 12 x 36cm.  Finished card
closed and tied with a satin blue ribbon - decorated with Spellbinders Bitty Blossom Flowers.

Open showing inside decorated with a floral print paper.  The image is mounted onto Marianne Creatables die.
 I wanted the inside image to stand out so I attached a piec of folded acetate attached to the card base and the image.

Showing the image standing proud a little bit.
