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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Paper Piecing

Good Morning All
We are half way through this months Forever Friends Challenge and the theme is 'Paper Piecing'. 

My card shows a Pink Gem digi
 I cut out his shirt and boots in yellow paper to match my colour scheme of orange and yellow and brown.

Dies used---
Sissix Framelits Scallop Square

This shows how I folded my 12 x 36cm card - scored at 12cm, 24cm, 28cm, 32cm and 34cm.
My Forever Friends paper piecing is this one and I pieced the checked shawl.
 Crochet a little blanket and a heart.

My Mistake------------------------
This is the first card I have made is a 'Pink Gem' image which I think is so cute.   I have made corners with parchment and pierced and embossed them. I made this card thinking that the challenge was 'Paper Piercing' not 'Paper Piecing'.  A senior moment, not reading correctly, but I wanted to show you this one as I thought the image was so cute.
Winner Sponsor is The Ribbon Girl
and Forever Friends Favourite it Pink Gem Designs

Have fun this month.
