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 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

More Groovi Waste

 Good Morning All

As this post goes live we will be in the air on our way to Australia via Singapore to visit Johns youngest son, so afew scheduled posts  on the way.

Today is another way I use my offcuts of parchment.

Alot of my cards are square and as parchment usually comes in A4 or A5, I do have quite afew pieces that are 5 x 3 so here are some cards I have made to show my class.

I have a lovely plate with the large Happy Birthday in a lovey scroll font so I thought I would make that the focal point of the cards.

The first two cards, the pieces were not quite wide enough to fit the sentiment in full so added the Birthday word from a different plate.

Then just matted it onto designer paper.

Added afew gems to this one.

This is the sentiment as it is on the plate.

I'm very happy with these.
