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

Christmas for Crafty Ribbons

Good Morning All

I have made this style of card before and really enjoy doing it.
4 Drawers under an easel card.
Great way to include a gift with a card.

Lots of ribbon on these two cards
Seam Binding  HERE
Grosgrain Christmas Trees HERE
Grosgrain Christmas words
Heart Buttons HERE

The image and the sentiment are both recycled from Christmas cards.

I did splatters with white Gesso to, hopefully, look like snow.

Here is another one of the same style, again using a recycled Cristmas card.

A large heart button with seam binding threaded through.

A beautiful stick pin gifted to me in a swap.

Trimmed off with an MDF embellishment with lace.
