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

Abit of Groovi

 Good Morning All

Going for abit of Groovi today.

First a very easy one.  I use my offcuts with this plate and make good Man cards.

Abit more complex on this one with the grid work which I love doing.

And this one is little more fiddly as a much smaller pattern.  I coloured the flowers and leaves then attached the circle sentiment with pearl brads.

I believe from the news that UK is having a really cold spell and we arrive next Tuesday, not looking forward to the cold, I must admit.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

I hope you are all having a good weekend.  We are abit upside down as we are having our kitchen replaced so everything is in the Living Room and we are living out of Microwave so to speak!!.

I cancelled Craft Group on Friday as some are away and some not well etc. so there was only one other so I thought it wasn't worth it and it was just as well with having kitchen done.

 Anyway, the card challenge for this week is a sketch (below)

This is my card using an LOTV topper and some paper from my stash (very old)

Onto last weeks challenge which was

I had these recipes from Gi Kerr on Etsy all  Christmas food.

So I slotted one behind the lovely ribbon from Crafty Ribbon UK.

Sentiment is from JND and I think the paper is Lisa Horton, a very old pad.

Bits & Bobs

 Good Morning All

I am still trying to clear out my photo files so  this is afew more.

Firstly, at y Craft Group, I do give all the ladies a gift and I  very simply decorate the little paper bags, John gets his meds in from the Farmacia.

I use a printable and cut to size to fit both sides

                                                    And here are a couple of cards.
This one is a digital that a lovely Spanish lady was kind enough to send to me, layered onto embossed pink card and then black card, still trying to use my scraps too.

And this one is a lovely silhouette stamp in a painted oval .

 Good Morning All

Some more cards from my stock today.

These are all just over 5x5 size and are great for my boxes for charity raffle prizes.

I would be lost with out my LOTV Toppers for Mens cards. I bought alot of digitals from LOTV and store them on my Laptop to use whenever I want and precoloured too which is a bonus.

This one is using a Two Jays stamp that John promoted a long time ago.  Just stamped on an inky background.

This is  a random stamp, again, stamped on a watercolour painted background.
