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

Happy Sunday & Challenge

Good Morning All

My challenge for the Craft Club ladies and yourselves, if you wish to join in, is
Black & White. (plus gold or silver ONLY)

My card is very simple.
I found this digi is my stash, don't know whose it is.
I just mounted it onto black card which I punched in the corners added a gold pearl and a sentiment and that was it.

The gifts I gave out on Friday were these boxes containing a sponge.
Some of the ladies said they would use them in their craft rooms to keep their pins in or glue tops.
I suggested cutting a hole in the middle to store the glue bottle in upside down,!!


Last weeks challenge was to make  something Christmas with ribbon.
I gave my ladies a piece of ribbon from Crafty Ribbons to use as they wished and they came up with some belters.

These are the last of the Watercolour cards I made a while ago.

A Travel Notebook

Good Morning All

Another Notebook today on the travel theme.
One of my  Craft Club ladies used to live in France and she gave me a large map book of France so 
I used some of the pages.
I added Seam Binding from Crafty Ribbons as the closure (link in sidebar)
Used the twine for sewing the signature in for afew beads on the spine.
Beautiful paper on the cover from Gi Kerr.

Inside the front cover is the map page and a sentiment from Gi.

Made a couple of paperclips with some of the embellishments free with the paper.

The first flip of the back cover I made a pocket for cards.

And this is the other flip of the back cover with another pocket.

Another gift for my box.
Thanks for visiting

Say It With Flowers for Penny Black & Challenge

Good Morning All

As part of Allsorts Design Team we can Guest  at Penny Black Challenge blog HERE.
The them for August is

Say It With Flowers.

I used PB3822K Trumpet Vase and made two cards.
This first one was made a while ago when I was playing with water colour paints.
I simply painted different colours and stamped the image over the top - simples.
The charm is one I made, attached with twine and seam binding.

I used the same backing paper and used one of JND tags, played with Mica Magics and stamped the image on top.
Added afew flowers punched from left over scraps of parchment,  half a doily and some homemade sentiments.

Now onto my normal Sunday post for Craft Club Challenge.
Instead of a sketch or Tic Tac To, I gave the ladies 1/2 mtr of ribbon each from Crafty Ribbons

I want them each to make a Christmas card or something else using the Christmas ribbon I gave them.
Here is mine, a twist pop up card using a tutorial by Gi Kerr on You Tube.
I used the cute Penguin vertical ribbon, LOTV topper.

A Bellyband with a little tag pinned to it.

This is the back and I used a cut off from this paper for the bellyband.

This is the card all opened up.

It was quite easy to make too.

Crafty Ribbons are doing a SELECTION BOX

Montly Selection Box
