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 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

Anything but a card for Allsorts

Good Morning All

Allsorts Challenge this week is Anything But a Card
So I will show you a couple of small Pringle boxes I decorated for a swap on Facebook a while ago.

 The front with homemade embellishments and a flower from a swap.

This is the back.
LOTV Papers
Various laces and trims

I lined the lid and added a large flower.

This is another one I did, once I made one, I wanted to keep going.  I do have quite afew of these small Pringle tubs as we bought a case  of 24 just before Christmas, no wonder I had to go back on my diet!!!!

Once again, LOTV papers.
Various lace and trims.
Tiny Butterflies are from a swap, so gorgeous.

I have been making loads of tiny butterflies at night while I watch TV.
Punching them out and glueing 2 together and adding gems,
Very fiddly but such fun.

This is the lid with a tiny envelope made with the same paper.
Another flower from a swap.
And my homemade embellishments - lace flowers with Stick pin and resin flower centre.

And finally, here are some flowers I put inside for my swap partner to use.

We have a prize for the winner

Plus a mystery prize !!!!!
