About Me

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

Earring Card

Good Afternoon All
I,m feeling in a happy mood today as I just received 'slimmer of the week' at my slim club, only lost 0.5kg but after being in the UK last week I thought that was pretty good and alot of the others had gained.

I made this card before I went away and I have made similar before and think it is a good idea for a gift/card for someone you don't want to spend alot on for a gift but give a little token gift.


I made the earrings from a necklace that was bought in a charity shop and I dismantled it to get these lovely beads.
The centre paper in the aperture is an odd piece left over from another project.  The white surround is a die borrowed from John Next Door a while ago. (when I use something of his I usually cut afew out to use at a later date).  The punched hearts were sent to me in some candy I won and I just added afew gems and a sentiment.
A lovely girly card???
