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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Paper Scraps

Good Morning All

When I was in the UK I bought some bits from a Declutter site on Facebook.
One was some paper packs and odd pages had been cut so this is how I used them.
I made card bases with toning colours and added a strip of ribbon to hide the join.

This last one, I used these thin strips of paper which I thought was very pretty, so I matted it onto strips of card.

I think they look OK and are ready to have some toppers added to make a quick and easy card.
