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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Two from One Card Recycled

Good Morning All
I made a card for my neighbours birthday last year and his wife always gives me any cards they have received after the event to see if I can recycle them, and, if you know me, you know I can't throw anything away!!!!!

The original card was an easel with the pic of the little boy propped up on the base of embossed tools,
and here is what I made from it.

 I made two cards from the one.

I used X Cut Tags and S/B Scalloped Circles for the sentiments. 
I,m not sure if I have listed these before but I dont think the odd one will make much difference, do you?

I'm all for a bit of recycling. These are great. My sister always passes on to me any nice cards she receives so that I can do the same. Christine x
