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

Using Broken Jewellery

Good Morning All
On this card I have used some pieces of broken jewellery that was given to me.


The gold and pearl piece on the bow is one and the other is in the centre of the die cut, it is like a diamond stud.  The die used is S/B Shapeabilities Pendants in Spades cut in silver Mirri card. I embossed a piece of white card and added some Gilding wax.  I  mounted the sentiment on
  S/B Scalloped Hexagon, this is another one I use alot for sentiments.

Dies Total = 50
