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

Good Evening All
My last evening here in the UK, so looking forward to getting back home and seeing OH.  It is always lovely seeing everyone but I do want to get home as the time gets nearer.

My card today is pulled out of the picture archives and I dont really know why I have never blogged it before because it is so pretty and I do still have this card in my box upstairs.  I really will have to get parching again, it is very satisfying and so pretty.

Hope you like it.

Safe travels home but I bet your family wish you were staying. x

Absolutely stunning Wendy, I just love everything about it. Like you, I will have to get back to parchment again. I was only a beginner anyway, and didn't have too many tools, but I want to get back to doing it again. Your parchment is just so beautiful and I love the fan effect. Maybe you could give me some tips? Hugs, Jen x

Ooh, I love it - so unusual. I don't do parching, but I know exactly how to adapt it, so thank you for the idea.
