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

 Good Morning All

On these cards I really am using scraps  - Small pieces of embossed card.

Using my little punched butterflies and ribbon from 

Crafty Ribbon .com

Stamped sentiments

These are all 5x5 cards so smallish but great for the boxes I make for raffle prizes for the charities.
Which one do you like best??

 Good Morning All

Here are three cards using some gorgeous Ribbon From Crafty Ribbons Crafty Ribbons 

I used to be on their DT so  I still have some pieces.

These are card bases I make a my Craft Group on Fridays, using offcuts of embossed card and ribbon to hide the join.

I didn't add a topper on this one as I didn't think it needed it with such lovely bold ribbon.

Do you like them??

You Tube

 Good Morning All

We didn't have a Craft Group on Friday as the shop was shut so my little challenge is carrying over for another week.

So instead I have some cards I made to show on my latest

You Tube video.

The video shows how I make the Sentiment Dangles and there are links there too for the Heart one on this first card .

I have lots of these Dangles now so you will be seeing them again!!!
What do you think??

Winter for MTTC

 Good Morning All

My Time To Craft This fortnight is


chosen by GranMargaret down in Australia,

I made this card first, then when I was looking in my Christmas drawer for some suitable papers, I found some toppers I inherited from somewhere and thought  the scenes were very Wintery.

So this is the first one with an LOTV topper, Crafty Ribbons sentiment ribbon and a peeloff.

I added a boot charm tied with twine.

This is the second card with a lovely Winter scene  -  snow covered roof tops.  I think the papers are from Lisa when she used to work for Creative Expressions.

Which do you like best??

 Good Morning All

Last Saturday I got my box of cards out that were ready with mats or fractured frames etc, the ones I make at my craft group using scraps of card, paper and ribbon.  I finished  alot of them, 21 infact!!!!

Here are 2 of them.

I pulled out some LOTV toppers

I felt really proud of myself making so many into cards ready for the charity boxes.

The charities are having a hard time of it now as Facebook have got rid of the Donate button so donations have to be made through bank which alot, including me, dont like doing, it was so easy with the Donate button.
I know La Finca Castellan, the Animal charity I support, is suffering.

If anyone wants to help via myself, go to my Kofi page Kofi page and donate there and I will pass on the cash to them.

Thanks for visiting

Butterflies Galore

 Good Morning All

As you know, I dont like sitting watching TV without doing something else.  This is one thing I do, Make teeny tiny butterflies with Parchment or vellum and scraps of bookpages or coloured card.

And here are 4 cards I made just using them and afew offcuts, scraps.

Very sort of CAS, Sentiment is stamped and afew pearls in corner.

Scraps of embossed pearlised card.

Again, stamped sentiment and pearls.

Inked embossed card.

I think they look good, quite simple once the butterflies are made, that takes the time.
Do you do any crafting while watching TV?
