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

Christmas Boxed Off

Good Morning All

I,ve been a bit busy getting organised for the stall tomorrow as part of Fiesta week here.

Hard to think about Christmas now but here is another card I have made

This is really quite easy to make and I will do a post on how to do it within the next few days once the fayre is over.  It does fold flat to go in a A5 envelope too.  It has 2 decoupaged images on it, one behind the acetate window and 1 on the side.  You can go to town on decorating it up.  Peeloffs, die cut baubles, border punches etc etc. xxx
I have done afew of these with a bunch of flowers behind the window and they look great.

P.S.  I have added a tutorial on 18th July on how to ake this style of card. 

A couple of pics from the Wacky Races the other night in the village.


It was a really fun night and there were about 20 cars/mobiles, practically the whole village turns out for these things going on.  It is great.
