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 Birthday

Good Morning All

First BBQ of the year tonight with neighbours and friends.  It,s my birthday tomorrow so that is the excuse for it.  Lots of food and afew drinkies, great company and great weather.  John bought me  a new laptop so that is what I,m using now - it,s like having a TV instead of using my notebook.  When I won the My Memories Suite for Scrapbook designing, I longed for a bigger screen, and the sweetie that he is, bought this for me but let me have it early.  Love him to bits.xxxxxxx
I also got my candy by special delivery yesterday from TONIC STUDIOS which I was lucky enough to win, so that was like another birthday pressy!!!!!!!

Todays card is another easel
A6 card blank folded to make easel with silver mirri card with rounded corners
Decoupage image of bouquet of flowers (there will be lots of decoupage as I cut loads while in the UK)
Loads of punched flowers, inked with shades of pink, and pearls in the center of some and spots in others

Scraps of pink card and stripey paper
