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

Fancy Folds

Good Morning All
I hope all is well in your part of the world.
I,m getting homesick for my little grand children, I miss them so much, this is the down side of living here.
Thanks goodness for Skype. Rickys house move went well and I had a tour via Skype yesterday morning and Hollie modelled her new cardigan for me and she looked so sweet.
**************
Todays challenge at Hobbycutz is set by Craftin' Suzie and she wants to see 'fancy folds'
I was browsing around on Pinterest and came across this style which I thought looked good and HERE is the blog with the template from Clairebear.






I have used all bits and bobs from my stash - buttons, charms, string/twine, stamped sentiment tags and paper.  Lovely paper with all Latin words on.  Mustard card is 12 x 12 card pad bought from TKMax last year when I was in UK.  Bead pins (for sale at top of my blog).





This gorgeous bird in cage is one of Hobbycutz Laser cuts.




These two pics, hopefully show the fold abit more.

Sponsor for this challenge is Iva Nova Chest
Suppliers of jewellery findings and beads etc.
