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

Charity Cards

Good Morning All
A break from the dies challenge today.
*****
A while ago I was given  quite alot of craft stuff by Linda from Animal Aid (one of the charities I support here)
Amongst it was some aperture card blanks, some were very small and some were very long and thin.  






They were not the type of cards I would  buy but, you know me, I can't throw anything out.
So I decided to make some boxes for them and give them back to Linda for her to give as raffle prizes.




So here is some of the cards once I had decorated them.





And here they are all wrapped in cellophane and ribbon ready for Linda and I have enough cards to make up two more boxes.

  1. What a lovely idea Wendy. A twofold kindness. Firstly that she gave you the cards, and then the fact that you made something very special from them. The animal charity will certainly benefit from this. Christine
