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
A very quick and simple Christmas card just to show you what can be made recycling last years Christmas cards.  Some of my neighbours and Linda (from Animal Aid) give me their old Christmas cards and usually I will use the backs (plain white card) for embossing in Cuttlebug but there are afew images  and/or sentiments that I think will look nice made into another card and this was one of them.

Very simply just matted and layered onto black and green mirri card and afew stars added.
 I make so many Christmas cards for the charities here, this is a good way of making them cheaply.
