About Me

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

Good Morning All
I have been busy making embellishments for my cards.
I used a cocktail stick, attached a pearl to each end with a piece of twine through it.
I started using felt then decided to use old pieces of card.

 Final results.

They are approx 5cm x 10cm

so each one will be used for  one card
matted and layered,
probably onto embossed and coloured card
but I will show when I have made some cards with them.

I will use these for Christmas cards.

All the embellishments used on them are homemade.

I really like these two, so pretty.
I used all bits in my stash that I have made in the past - flowers, die cuts, ribbon, gems
Some more to come tomorrow.
Doing some more Christmas ones.
