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

Sunday Mojo Number 5

Good Morning All
Gosh it is nice to be back in the warm sunshine of Spain.  But so very hard leaving my gorgeous grand daughter behind, but it is only 7 or 8 weeks until she will be visiting us here.

Onto the challenge set by John Next Door last week and it was so flippin' difficult.  Two card blanks and two envelopes and some sticky pads and the word 'FOUND', he explained that I was to make two cards using items I found on my travels to and in the UK, so this is what I managed to come up with.

I was walking Hollie in the park, bitterly cold morning, all muffled up with hat, scarf and gloves on, eyes to the floor and I spotted some daisies in flower and quite afew feathers, nice white ones, so I pocketed those.  Finally a gorgeous serviette that Loriens Mum used for our Sunday tea.

Then further along I found a foam 'cat' shape, abit trodden on, but I thought I may be able to do something with it.

So I used the feathers and pulled three bits off the pine cone.

I don't think I will be giving this card to anyone do you?

I,m afraid mine are no where near as artistic as Johns but he has had college training and that is my excuse and I am sticking to it!!!!

                        I will have to get my thinking cap on now to get things together for next weeks challenge!!!!!
Ain't she cute?  Showing off her first teeth on this one.
