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

Lattice Window Striplet

Good Morning All

I made this one when I returned to Spain, playing with my purchases!!!
I bought some 8 x 8 card blanks and wow, they are huge to me when I,m used to 5 x 5 or 6 x 6!!

This is how it first started but thought it need more.

Pierced Flag Sentiment.

Then added Perfect Peonies,
ribbon and a stick pin.

Hi Wendy, nearly all my cards are 8x8, although I'm trying to do smaller ones for Christmas posting. Love your card, with shades of mauve (my fav). The final version is the best. Have a good day. Janice xx http://Createdbyjan.blogspot.com

My favourite colour too so it's a winner with me. Great card. My usual size is 6" x 6" or 5" x 7", but I do use 7" x 7" for something special. 8 inch are just a tad too big for me. Christine x

Hi Wendy
Lovely in lilac.
I'm normally an A5 gal but the last few cards I've done have been 8x8, cut from A3 cardstock, for special occasions for friends.
Best wishes.

Robin said...

Beautiful card! I love the flowers you added too. I don't know if I could handle an 8x8 card. That is a big one. Thanks for playing along with us at CWWC and good luck. Hugs, Robin
