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

AG for Crafty Friends

Good MorningAll
My first post this morning is for Crafty Friends Challenge and it is a nice, easy Anything Goes.
I used this cute digi from the sponsor.

I decided to make my neighbours a 'New Home' card as they have moved off the block into the next village.

 I used LOTV 'Pressed In Time' paper pad, matted onto a embossed white card rubbed with Gilding wax.
Coloured the image with Promarkers and die cut with S/B Fleur de Lis square, as is the sentiment.

Other bits from stash, ribbon and gems, pearls and twine.
I have decided to use any left over paper for the inside of my cards then I am not left with loads of scraps.
I stuck this die cut inside to write on.
Whenever I am die cutting and I have space left I fill it with shapes to use for sentiments and keep them in the drawers with the same coloured card, in little baskets, as in pic below.

Our sponsor this time is Toadstool Printables

Great idea for a New Home card Such a good idea to keep die cuts ready However I don't stamp (yet) Instead as I'm printing a specific card, any spare space of card/paper I print patterns etc
