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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

4 for 1

Good Morning All
I am up early today as I am waiting for workmen to arrive to do some work in the house.
I thought I would show you these cards I made the other day.  I was playing about with my Spellbinders border dies - I bought a set afew weeks ago and I thought they were cutters but when I got home they were embossers so I had to buy 2 more sets with the cutting edgers in!!  Anyway I was playing around and ended up with afew embossed/ cut edges so I decided to make a card, got out a piece of 8 x 8 lilac patterned paper and made a card.  Isn,t this Happy Birthday stamp lovely? (from Docrafts on a sheet I bought ages ago)
There was still some paper and borders left so I decided to make another.

There was still some paper and borders left so I decided to make another.
There was a tiny piece of paper and a border left so I decided to make another.

I have just posted two boxes of scrap back to UK for ladies on the Docrafts forum to use in their nursery schools and they cost nearly 15 GBP but I do so hate wasting anything and would rather someone get some use from it.  So, by doing this, there was no waste left from the 8 x8 piece of paper and my charities gain 4 cards from it too.

Have a good day
