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

Anything but a Card for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is hosted by Tracy Mouse and she doesn't want cards, anything but.
So I made a couple of boxes for cards to go in and these will go as raffle prizes at slimming club.

 I was given some cards, shop bought ones, to see if I could use them for toppers etc.  I thought it was a shame to cut them up as they are so cute.

They are quite small, 4 x 4 and there is 16 of them with envelopes too, so I split them into 2 lots and made two boxes.

Once again, used all old stuff, peeloffs across the top and the front of the green one.

Quilled flowers and a die cut stuck onto an embossed piece of card

This gorgeous corner die cut is one I cut a craft meet, I think it is Memory box.

Countryview - Blue

Scraps of ribbon used on both boxes.  I now keep all scraps in a plastic bag and use them whenever I can.
I thought whoever wins one of these could use the box for a gift, maybe chocolate!!!


Some wonderful creations from DT over on the challenge blog.
Have a fab weekend.
