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

Parchment Semi Oval

Good Morning All
I hope you  have all had a good Easter and not eaten too many choccy eggs.  I have not had one, aren't I a good girl???

Welcome to my new followers too, I hope you have a good time visiting me.

I have been doing abit of parchment again this last week and this is one of them.  I really like the way this one has turned out.  The pattern was for a full oval shape but I thought I would just do half of it and put this lovely handmade paper underneath.  I cut some flowers from odd bits of parchment paper with Cheery Lynn Roses dies - B154 and B 152.  The Chrysanthemum strip is Cheery Lynn B 311.

Afternoon Wendy, I just love your parchment cards - they look so delicate and beautiful. It's something that I couldn't get to grips with - probably too heavy handed LOL !!. Love the photos too - a lovely family. x Janice xx
