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

Concertina Butterflies

Good Morning All

I made these butterflies before my visitors arrived.


I added some of my gems for the centres.
Available HERE

And here is one on a card.





This pretty paper was given to me by Mrs. Duck via John Next Door when I met up with him in April.









I had to use the rest of the sheet of paper so made these two cards aswell.
And this is how I use the final pieces, this way I dont end up with lots of scraps in a box.

*****
Well my visitors go home later today.
It has been a busy visit, the girls are such a pleasure and great fun.

  8. These butterflies are really lovely and very pretty. To be honest people that have known me on the blog for ages know that I am adverse to Butterflies on cards because some of the images just don't do Butterflies justice. These are a gorgeous shape too.
    Really lovely cards.
