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

Unstampabelles Guest Designer

Good Morning All

I was asked a short while ago if I would like to do a guest spot for Unstampabelles Challenge as my card was chosen as their favourite in November (see post here) for a lovely parchment card I entered  (see my post here)  This was the post when my new Grandson decided to make his appearance.

Their challenge goes live at 7am Australia time so that is why this post is live at this time.

The name for  this challenge site says it all,  you cannot use stamps or digis.
I made two cards for my guest spot, both very similar, as the theme is New Beginnings with a twist of use something New, embellishment, technique or product.

As you know, I love my decoupage and I love Forever Friends.

The Baby teddy is stuck on the front of acetate and the oval image is stuck inside the acetate.  Ribbon on the top corner.  The buttons are the New element - Christmas gift from my friend Val HERE.

My second card will be shown here and on the Unstampabelles Challenge blog on 19th Jan.

I put a little charm in the box (as this will be going to the charities I support, for them to sell) but it could be used for money or small gift.
All the papers, decoupage and gift boxes are from a Forever Friends pack.
Thanks You to Susan for asking me to Guest for them.
