About Me

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

Special Wedding Card

Good Morning All

I can now show you a card I made a while ago for a lady that I know.  She wanted a really special Wedding card for her son.

 I made a box to keep the card safe.

I put a square doily in the box to stop it waggling round as she was taking it back to the UK by car.

I made an easel card with wings, if you know what I mean .

I've hidden name and date etc with Picassa, but this was done on computer.

Made a little book with Spellbinders Labels 4 as she wanted some photos  incorporated in the card somewhere.

Gorgeous charm reads 'To Love and to Cherish'

Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares pearlised cream card.

Gems on the embossed white card.

Heart paper been in stash for ages.

I hope they liked it, the Happy Couple, and had a lovely day on Saturday.
