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

One Layer for Allsorts

Good Morning All

Allsorts Challenge this week is CAS, chosen by Julie.

I used a new technique for me.
 John Next Door did it on Hochanda a while ago.  stamped an image with glue then used Gilding  flakes. All stamped onto a CE Noble Pierced Rectangle.
The stamp is Alexandra from CE
Sentiment  heat embossed onto a Pierced flag.
Very pleased with how this turned out and will no doubt be using it again.
Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the other wonderful DT creations.

  1. I wondered if you had used gilding flakes Wendy and you have and to gr eat effect. I have tried it so many times but never usually happy with the finish, think I am too heavy handed.

    Hope you have a good weekend.
