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

Parchment Poinsettias

Good Morning All
This is the Christmas card I made for the two guys that run the bar where we have our slim and craft meets.

I love the way this turned out and love the parchment Poinsettias with lovely big shiny gems in the centres.
All done on Centura Pearl card.

I took a leaf out of Johns book and matted and layered 4 times!!!  His cards look so classy having more layers and narrow borders too, I think he uses just a half centimetre  borders.
I put the sentiment in Spanish as they do get Spanish  customers in the bar and  we are in Spain !!!!!

Hope you all have a lovely day.

Love all the white with the touch of green, thought the sentiment was their names lol.
How nice to have a craft meeting in a bar, our local one is in the Old Folks Rest Centre, need to have a word with them about that.
