About Me

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

Hi all

Happy Valentines Day to everyone.  Hope you all got some lovely gifts.  I have seen some posts over on Docrafts so I know afew of you have.  I,m getting taken out for dinner tonight so that will be nice.

Todays card is a commission.  I was asked, on Sunday, to make a 60th Diamond anniversary card for one of my quiz buddies.  I have seen afew cards all (or nearly all ) one colour so this was an opportunity to try it out.

As you all know, I love making flowers and these were made from a template from MCS that came with a package of a Click, Print and Go CD and pop out flowers.  So I sit at night while watching the TV and make flowers.  So it is a hammered cream A4 card folded in half and then into an easel fold.  A white linen effect card mounted on top and corners punched.  Then all the embellishments added and glitter round the labels and Stickles on the flowers.
I love it and I hope my friend will too.
