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

Embossing for MAWTT

Good Morning All
I will try to catch up with you all in the next few days but we have got OH sons flying in this morning so I am trying to get unpacked, go to airport to pick them up AND I have new craft stuff that I want to play with!!!!!

Moving Along With The Times is hosted by our newer DT member today, Diane.
She would like to see some Embossing on your creations, either wet or dry, I used both on my card.

I used Crafts Too 'Sweet Lattice' A4 Embossing folder for the background and Bronze Gilding Wax.
Marianne Creatables LR0278 for the corners.
Marianne Craftables CR1249 for the square frame and the flowers and leaves.
Sentiment is from Woodware 'Singles' set of stamps, heat embossed in gold, although it doesn't show too good on this pic.
Why not pop over to the challenge blog and join in.
