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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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 Evening All

I,ve been watching the tennis today and still watching Murray and Tsonga.

Todays card is a Christmas one.  Over on Docrafts I joined in Snoflakes challenge to make a Christmas card every week and this week I have made quite afew.  In November 2010, I was in the UK and I bought a couple of magazines.  One was Making Cards and I cant remember the other one but it had a great big bag of Crafters Companion Christmas papers and decoupage.   I still have some left for this year  and this is what I have been using.
Is is a lovely cute decoupage of two penguins on a sledge.
6 x 6 white card blank.
Green Mirri card from C&C

It seems so strange making Christmas cards when it is 35 degree heat.

Fabulous card, you do get some lovely papers with Making cards magazine. I've used some free papers and stamps today as well. Didn't Andy Murry do well, lets hope he can carry it through.
