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

5 Christmas cards from 2 sheets

Good Morning All
I was  carrying on making Christmas cards to build my stock up, as I need so many.

I bought a 12x12 Christmas paper pad from a show I went to with my sister in April, so I chose 1 sheet which is glittered and 1 sheet to match from a plain paper pad from Lidl.
I made as many cards as I could without cutting into any more paper.
I already had some LOTV toppers mounted onto the same coloured paper.
No. 1

No. 2

No's 3 & 4

No. 5
Using the last scraps

And finally the  very last piece goes to punch out Butterflies.

I thoroughly enjoyed making these, I just have to add inserts and sentiments.

We were talking at our Craft Club the other day and I think I am a lazy crafter.
I like staying sat at my desk and dont like getting up and down all the time to get more stuff to use, or die cut stuff.
I like everything around me to use.
Does that make sense?
