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

Crafty Friends & MAWTT Challenges

 

Good Morning All

I shall start with Crafty Friends Challenge  which has a theme of

Embossing

I made two cards, very similar.

I used CE Mosaic Leaves EF.

The tag toppers came from one of my crafty friends.

I helped tidy her craft room, way back in March and she disposed of alot of stuff so I grabbed some bits and these were among them.

I rubbed over the embossing with Johns (Crafts Too) Mica Paints.

Added  a sentiment tag on each one.



************

Which is Inky Backgrounds

I was playing with my Oxides and water, and had quite a selection to choose from but as I was doodling at the time too, I chose colours that matched the doodled flower.

Great fun to play with.

Enjoy the challenges this month.

Happy Sunday Challenge

 Good Morning All

Back to a Bingo chart for this weeks challenge. 

I made a card using a painted doodle that I have been playing abut with.  Some of the ladies at craft wanted to have a play on Friday so I took my cheapest of water colours sets, very basic, and some watercolour card and Micron pens.

I printed the sentiment straight onto the card base, it did take a bit of fiddling about but finally managed it by taping the card to an A4 piece of paper.


Chart to follow - I used Emboss, Oval and Flower.


Here is some more of my practicing pages.



************
Gifts given out were odds left over from previous weeks.


Onto last weeks challenge which was another sketch.


My card

Denise

Eve

The name drawn was Denise.

Hot Foil

 Good Morning All

One of my Craft ladies very kindly bought some stuff for the club. One of the items was a We Are Memory Keepers Hot Foil Pen and I tried it first then I could show the others.

I loved it.  I stamped the image onto tracing paper, then overlaid it onto the black card then traced with the hot foil pen.

I like it best on black card but I think I will buy some coloured foil and do some Christmas trees for my cards this year.



Val J tried it and she loved it too.
Thanks for visiting.

Groovi Monthly plate

 Good Morning All

This card is made using the Monthly plate I received this month from Clarity.

I did try snipping a trellis on the sale but it broke, so I cut the whole lot out and inserted the peeloff sentiment.

I'm quite happy with it.


See you soon

Doodles

 Good Morning All

I have been doodling again.

I joined a group on Facebook called Clean & Simple Cards and the cards on there inspired me.

This pic is abit blurry but it gives you the idea.

I managed to work out how to print the sentiment directly onto my card blank.

I did some splodge painting with a cheap set of watercolours and doodled around with a fine liner pen.


I cut various frames with CE Pierced Ovals die set.


This one has a small LOTV topper.
I used my scoreboard for all of them, just afew lines on the front and the back gives it a nice shadow effect.


I have shown these on Facebook last week but thought I would show them here too.
I really like them and will be making lots more for the charity boxes.

My craft friend Eve is in UK at present and she left afew of her Groovi with me to play with and this is one of them. I think it is Sweet Pea.

I have done it on Black parchment.

It is a lovely plate to work with, the lines are very fine.

Sharm Studio Ukraine

 Good Morning All

A quick card today for the charity box using a dig set from SharmStudio over on Etsy.

I have made similar ones before but I do like to remind you of the digis as the designer is in Ukraine and needs our support.

The butterfly EF is from Creative Expressions and it's one I do use alot.

The sentiment is printed  from my laptop.

So a quick, no frills card.
