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

Anything But Christmas

Good Morning All

The Allsorts Challenge this week is set by Jo and she must be fed up of Christmas as she has chosen the theme of 'Anything But Christmas'  LOL.

I have gone back to my loved decoupage.  Used my Heartfelt Creations from Spellbinders to decorate a gate fold card.  Decorated the band that  holds the card shut with ribbon and bling.




The sentiment is a freebie from Nettys blog HERE.

I just matted and layered the decoupage flowers on cream and yellow card.

Pearl butterflies and square gems added, these have been in my stash for years and need to be used.
